OK 4.0

Cons: Spirit is the most uncomfortable and non-accommodating airline out there. All they got going for them is cheap.

OK 4.0

Cons: $55 for a carry on is unbelievable! Flight was delayed for 2.5 hours. No reasons why until I got on the plane and the poilt told us why it was late. First and last time flying with spirit

Good 6.0

Pros: I liked the service person who maintained a decent attitude.

Cons: Not knowing what was going on. Not having received notice before arriving at the airport. The 1 carry-on $55 fee is ridiculous. Being directed to United as a replacement without being told it would be 30 mins before the change showed up in their system, trekking all the way over, having them tell me something was wrong, trekking all the way back to Spirit, and then having a different service person snap at me that that was normal, as if 30 extra minutes and unnecessarily going back and forth wasn't anything to do with them. This is my second such experience with Spirit.

Pros: I didn’t like the fact not to be aware of the luggage policy and pay 50$ because you don’t have the choice once at the airport. The informations are really badly given before the departure m, the page couldn’t charge on the priceline site and it is the last time I use this medium to book a flight.

Cons: I have a very small carry on bag fits in the recommended box for sizing. At the gate upon entry to flight, I was told that the bag needed to be checked ! 7.5 pound pull bag recommended for overhead storage. I don't understand.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
