Was given a future travel credit to use. They tried telling me it was expired even though it wasn’t. No one on the phone could find it even though I had the confirmation #. We were thankful for the credit but it was a headache. They say it’s good for a year but their flights are only open a few...

My go to has always been Alaska or Southwest, now I have to say I did all my homework before booking, it does take some time to wade through the maze of information, however if you arrive at the airport and are surprised...

I have The Spirit Airlines card earning miles. Using miles on spirit is not always easy as there are so many blackout days or where they require double. Triple the miles.

The representative at the counter was horribly rude and was unable to explain...

So I book a flight through Expedia and end up with Spirit airlines. I have a flight out to Atlanta for a 1 day conference Saturday all day. I am stuck at LAX airport. Spirit had us board, sit then get off the plain because it will not start this sad.

Very good for the price and the flight was great. No frills service is fine with these budget airlines. There was nothing special. They did miss my TSA Pre Check information on my ticketing though.

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).
