Mediocre 2.6

Pros: I was give seat 26A. I am a small woman seated next to two small women, we were crammed in to tight. Also I do not like the way you are charged for ever enmity. The seat was dirty. There was trash from the prior inhabitant smashed behind the tray table. The bathroom was disorderly it was out of toilet paper and tissues. The stewardess thought she was a stand up comedian. She was dissing her employer. Pointing out that nothing is free on Spirit airlines. Making a bad situation feel worse.

Cons: It was on time. All the other attendants other than the comedian were very nice.

Good 6.0

Pros: It took off on time, cabin crew were good and the pilot did a good job landing in a strong wind.

Cons: I bought a cheap ticket and apparently that now means on Alaska Air that I don't get a seat assignment until I get to the gate and then I will be given two seats in the very back of the plane.

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.
