Pros: The attendant was the only reason I stayed on flight, very polite and nice.

Cons: The surprise fees for luggage starts off this rant. It cost another $160.00 for three checked bags. More than I paid for a seat. Then the boarding was terrible, thru charge you for “priority 2” boarding which amazingly everyone is. The seats inside the plane don’t recline. $3.00 water??? Enough

Pros: Nothing at all. I will NEVER FLY SPIRIT AGAIN!!!

Cons: On international arrival at FLL, I found that, because Spirit's website had crashed repeatedly, preventing me from checking in online, Spirit proposed to charge MORE THAN THE COST OF RENTING A MID-SIZE CAR THAT WOULD REACH MY (nr. SRQ) DESTINATION SOONER, just for MY CARRY ON!!! Ticket is in trash.

OK 4.0

Cons: Unfortunately I am writing this letter to express my concerns and frustrations toward your stewardess on flight 1050, they were aggressive and condescending. A customer ask if they were serving drinks the male stewardess waved his hand and seemed quite annoyed and stated " mam what do you want to drink". In addition he would walk down the aisle and give you three wafer cookies , I'm wondering why three???? That's because he wanted me to pass them down as if I was in an assembly line rather than handing each customer a cookie. He walked through the aisle with water and never asked if anyone if they would like water. It was almost like he was annoyed at everyone in sight . I have never experienced such behavior on flight. I flew Unites AIrlines plenty of times and NEVER experienced this. The other customers in my row expressed their frustration with the unkindness of treatment during the flight. I understand it's a very hectic weekend with the holiday but there was absolutely no reason to experience such behavior. My party will not be looking forward to using united again!

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.
