Honestly, the flight itself was fine - unmemorable, which is a good thing. But Spirit’s 40 pound limit for checked luggage rather than the 50 allowed by basically every other airline will make me think twice about using them again for longer trips (this was an 11-day trip for a cruise). We also had Tile locators attaches to our luggage,...

The Flight cost $122 round trip for 2 people. Yes thats $61each round trip. If you read and understand that you can't carry a bag bigger than a normal size backpack, this makes for the perfect weekend getaway. There is no reason to pack a large bag for a quick weekend trip to Vegas. If you read and understand the...

We knew that Spirit was a no frills airline, with limited leg room and nothing included. But the amount of time it took for our checked suitcase to come down the carousel was ridiculous. Once the first bags finally started coming, the first ten bags were coming off about one every two minutes and then the bags just stopped for...

I will never travel with spirit air unless their fares are at least 1000.00 less then a major airline. You pay30 00 to check a bag then when you arrive at the airport they want $45.00 more if you bag is over 40 pounds the standard for any major airline is 50.00 Over all a round trip for 1 hour...

My family & I took a week long vacation to Las Vegas. I was very worried because of the reviews, but we had no problems at all. Don’t sleep on Spirit , not bad at all.

I think we will spend the extra money and go with another airline. The seats are so skinny and don't move at all so you are sitting straight up and cramped the whole trip and to save 20-30 dollars isn't worth it because you end up spending that on your carry on bag.

Beware if you have a lot of baggage. We flew another airline going and to return home was more costly than the deal we thought we had. Upon arriving at their area at the airport, it was a chaotic to say the least. People were transferring their personal belongings to make the weight limit and they count a very small...

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).
