Don't be turned off by the budget aspect of spirit airlines. The fares can't be beat and if you join the "nine dollar club" they're even better. The only way to fly with spirit is to purchase the "Big front seats". For about 59 bucks you sit in the front of the plane in huge seats with loads of leg...

Before we boarded the flight while waiting, the flight attendants engaged my grandboys in showing them how to download the apps to watch movies on the flight. On the flight, they checked with them and served them even though the six years old was asleep. The flight was a good one. As we were travelling with children we were allowed...

So many reviews here probably forgot it's a low cost company- they break the flight price up so if you want you can fly for really cheap! If you want food seats etc you have to pay for it but it's ok. I had a short flight and didn't mind not having food. You just can't beat the price- I...

Ample seats, comfortable. Friendly staff and flight attendants. Flown another economy airline, but compared to this, no match definitely flying Spirit again!

Flight To and From were Fine. But no Charger post for Cell phone or Lap Top. Nothing Free, not even water. $ 50.00 Bag Check Fee, $ 55.00 Carry-on Bag fee, only $ 45.00 if pre-paid and booked on-line. I expected it to be as bad as frontier Airline, and it was better. but still No thrills!

I go up to the desk and ask the Spirit employee what we should be doing because we have a connecting flight with them in Ft. Lauderdale to get to Cancun that...

On my vacation from Baltimore to Las Vegas, I flew Spirit airlines and it was quite pleasurable. Everyone from the pilot to the flight attendants were the upmost professional friendly people. First, I would highly recommend purchasing the TSA-pre check in or the security shortcut (if you able to). Note: They are two separate things. It was a breeze going...

About Spirit Airlines
Florida-based Spirit Airlines (NK) flies non-stop to more than 55 destinations in the United States, Caribbean, Central America and South America. The carrier, which is not part of a major airline alliance, operates a fleet configured entirely with Economy Class seating. For an additional fee, passengers can reserve Big Front Seats, which are wider seats with more legroom located at the front of the plane. Travelers can also pay additional fees for checked baggage and onboard drinks and snacks. Spirit Airlines has two operating bases: Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) and Fort Lauderdale – Hollywood International Airport (FLL).
