Hand Baggage Allowance

Spirit uses what they call their Bare Fare to keep their base prices as low as possible. Those who travel light will benefit the most from this policy, but it allows each customer to personalize their trip. Each passenger is permitted to carry on one free personal item. The item must be able to fit in a box with the dimensions of 16 x 14 x 12 inches (40 x 35 x 30 cm) including handles and wheels. This usually means only a small backpack or purse will be free to carry–on. An additional carry–on bag that can fit under the airplane seat or in the overhead bins requires a service charge and should be a maximum of 22 x 18 x 10 inches (56 x 46 x 25 cm) in size. This fee changes depending on when you reserve the carry–on privilege. The base price is charged if purchased during online booking or before online check–in. The price goes up slightly if a carry–on bag allowance is reserved during online check–in. Members of Spirit's $9 Fare Club receive a reduction on these charges. Passengers who wait until the airport to select the carry–on option will be subject to a higher charge, which rises again if carry–on luggage is booked at the gate. These last two prices are not subject to a $9 Fare Club discount.

Checked Baggage Allowance

Checked bags are also charged differently according to when the request is made by the customer. During online booking or before online check–in, the first checked bag is charged at the base price, while during online check–in the fee rises. The fee rises again if checked bags are booked at the airport or at the gate. The service charge for second checked bags has a higher fee structure, which similarly varies according to time of purchase. Third, fourth and fifth checked bags also have higher service charges. Spirit Airlines also charges additional fees for baggage items that exceed certain weight or size limits. Bags that weigh 41 – 50 lbs (18 – 23 kg) are subject to a base service charge, which increases for baggage in the 51 – 70 lbs (23 – 32 kg) range and again for anything that weighs between 71 – 99 lbs (32 – 45 kg). The first fee level for oversized baggage is for checking an item with a combined linear measurement greater than 62 linear inches (158 cm). For baggage that exceeds 80 linear inches (203 cm), a higher fee is charged. Certain items of sporting equipment have separate or specific fee structures. Regulations can vary from item to item; for instance, two surf boards can be checked together in one bag for the same price. Golf clubs, skis and snowboards are priced the same as checked bags and overweight charges may apply.

Check-In

Spirit Airlines allows and encourages online check–in beginning 24 hours before the scheduled departure time of the flight. Checking in online with Spirit will often save the passenger money on baggage fees, if they choose to purchase their bags at that time. Online check–in also allows the passenger to use the Fast Bag Drop for quicker service at the airport. It is also possible to check in at the airport using either automated kiosks, which save money, or at the check–in counter. Passengers are charged a small fee to print out a boarding pass in the airport at this point. Spirit recommends that passengers arrive at the airport two hours before their domestic flight is scheduled to depart, or three hours before the scheduled departure time of international flights. Because of Transport Security Administration (TSA) screening requirements, bags must be checked a minimum of 30 minutes before the flight, or 60 minutes before flights to international destinations. In several major US cities a minimum of 45 minutes is required. These cities are Dallas, Denver, Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Orlando, Los Angeles and San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Spirit Airlines website provides flight status updates.

Boarding Information

Passengers who do not have a boarding pass at least 30 minutes before departure may lose their reservation. Loss of reservation can also occur if a passenger is not at the gate 15 minutes before takeoff.

Frequent Flyer Information – FREE SPIRIT

FREE SPIRIT is the name of Spirit Airlines' frequent flyer program. Free registration for the program is available via the airline's website. After joining, members will earn miles based on the cost of flights they purchase. The Spirit World Mastercard is another way to earn miles for Spirit Airlines. The miles can be redeemed for award travel. Members also have the option to make use of their FREE SPIRIT miles by exchanging them for magazine subscriptions or online games and contests. Being a FREE SPIRIT member also makes it easier to make reservations and manage bookings.

General Information

The origins of the company go back to 1964, when it was founded as Clipper Trucking Company. In 1980, they started an airline service called Charter One. Since 1992, the company has been known as Spirit Airlines and has expanded their list of destinations to 52, spanning the US, Caribbean, Central America and South America. Its headquarters is in Ft. Lauderdale, and its other top hub airports are in Las Vegas, Dallas, Chicago and Detroit. Spirit Airlines became an ultra low cost carrier in 2007. They used an innovative plan to reduce costs by charging for optional services such as baggage and drinks or their Big Front Seat. The Big Front Seat option is Spirit's alternative to business class or first class, neither of which they offer. They also display advertising throughout their airplanes to generate ad revenue, including on tray tables, seatback inserts and overhead bins. Spirit uses only Airbuses in its fleet of planes. It has 29 Airbus A319–100s, which seat 145 passengers. Spirit also uses 26 Airbus A320–200s with a capacity of 178. Their two Airbus A321–200s hold 218 passengers apiece.

New York La Guardia - Chicago O'hare International Airport (LGA - ORD) From: $58
Spirit is the cheapest flight. BUT! After buying their tickets, costumers have to pay for everything since bags to sits... And because of that the flight is not the cheapest, way beyond that, it costs more money than another expensive flights. Food is not invluded too.

Dallas Ft Worth International - Las Vegas Mccarran International Airport (DFW - LAS) From: $80
the flight was bad the seat don't recline and and the Leg room is little to none im 5'8 and was cramped but for 30 bucks you get what you pay for, The crew was nice but the plane made a crazy noise for the first 10 mins of the flight sounded like it was going to blow up people where getting scared. Spend the extra 50 bucks and fly frontier or some other budget airline. Like i said if you dont mind be uncomfortable and saving money fly Spirit

Houston G.Bush Intercontinental - Las Vegas Mccarran International Airport (IAH - LAS) From: $182
The check in staff greeting us were extremely rude to my husband, we brought a bag without wheels that fit perfectly fine as a carry on but the two sour grapes at the dest made him Check it in and charge him for it then my husband ask why it fits and has no wheels and it fits!?They said you can do it with us or wait toll the gate and charge $50 we don't care, my husband commented on thr fact that flying United was a lot better and them ending charching for the bags would have made it the same price as United. The ladies said oh well you chose us. But we didnt they were giving him an attitude and making more rude comments and if it wasnt for the fact thst we were at an airport I would have reach over the desk and slap the S#!T OUT OF THEM!!! That's how rude they were being!!! They felt perfectly saying what they wanted, knowingly protected by the TSA. We were in Vegas for a Conference and unfortunately business partners bought us that flight. The flight alone was horrible it was uncomfortable the seats can't decline not enough space between you and the seat in front of you and behind you, you keep getting hit by the person trying to move around because they have no space. On the way back same thing!!!

It was one of the worst flying exeperiences in my life. Staff was rude. A stewardess dropped a bag on my head and said I was in the way. I went so far as to book with a different airline for.my return trip. I tried to contact spirit was I received an auto reply saying it would be up to 48 hours before I received a reply.

Tampa International - Los Angeles Intl Airport (TPA - LAX)
If you buy simply because of price, Spirit is the key. But even though they're new planes, very small seats with barely any padding, very little legroom, nothing is free except the bathroom (not even water), no pillows, no blankets, and they charge for everything, and I mean everything. Window seat $14. Carry on $20 unless it fits underneath your seat, check in bag $30-100. They charge $10 just to check in at the airport so do it online for free. My $280 flight ended up costing $424, so spend the extra $50 and fly a real airline, which Spirit is not.

Online check-in never worked for me, outbound or returning. Very frustrating. The aircraft cabin couldn't have been any tighter - it was a new A320 - but I guess that's typical when flying budget airlines. The plane was clean, and we were ontime both ways.

Houston G.Bush Intercontinental - New Orleans L Armstrong Intl (IAH - MSY)
You receive one star ONLY because I was forced to otherwise it would have been NONE..... I think this airline is a rip OFF I booked a flight after confirmation realized it change the date of travel from what I requested and within 10 minute of confirmation called to correct it, but rate was higher so wanted to cancel. because it was for travel within the 7 days would NOT refund my money just a 50% credit toward future flight. I could under stand this strict policy if I had hours to think about this(second guess) and just decide to CANCEL. But this was within minutes broth on by an unfortunate error. because of this unwillingness by the airline I will never book or recommend this airline to anyone. And will loudly protest your airline to anyone that suggest interest in Spirit Airlines. Thank You to Southwest Airlines for understanding. Daniel Naquin 713.572.9010

New Orleans L Armstrong Intl - Detroit Metro (MSY - DTW)
The flight from New Orleans to Detroit was uneventful and on time. On the way back from Detroit was when the nightmare began. They lost the plane, didn't inform anyone what was going on or where to go (including the flight crew). We were 2 hours late getting back to New Orleans. The aircraft was a rickety old bucket of bolts that shook like it was falling apart. Never again!!!

the boarding process was behind schedule and a bit chaotic both times. i heard several people say they would never fly spirit again because of all the additional things they had to pay for. i like that if you pay for a carry on you get to board first. the plane was clean and the staff on board was friendly and professional.

Boarding experience excellent-quick and easy. Flight itself exceptional-arrived early both ways. Crew fairly average-not much interaction so can't assess much either. Price of fare was decent given the timing. Airports were great as well. Not sure if I just got lucky but security both ways was rather swift-especially on the return trip.

Las Vegas Mccarran International Airport - Dallas Ft Worth International (LAS - DFW)
Our flight from L. V. to DWF was cancelled by American Airlines. We were rerouted directly from Hnl. to DFW. Upon calling Spirit to inform them of the change in flights, we were told there would be a cancellation fee. That fee was actually more than we had paid for the original 3 tickets (L.V. to DFW). How was it possible to be in L.V. and Hnl. or DFW at the same time the fight was scheduled for departure, when we were already onboard the AA flight directly to DFW? I will not use your airline again for any local or overseas travel. My original tickets (3) cost over $400, including 3 checked bags which should have been transferred by AA to Spirit in L.V. Thanks foir the memories!

San Juan Luis Munoz Marin International - Orlando International (SJU - MCO)
Everything was fine, the stuff on board was really funny, making a jokes and coments that make me laugh, but....my flight became a "golden" for me. On top of the regular price for my flight and checked baggage I paid 50$ more for extra weight ( it's understandable) + 50$ for my carry on ( I had only 1 piece of carry on and it fit to the size aloud to carry with you on board free, but they charge me, coz it's have a wheels and look big). So, all together 122$+ 45$+50$+50$=247$. It's half of the price when I fly to Europe.

Not even worth a one star rating. I was supposed to fly to pheonix flight 167. there was no room in terminal so i waited across the hall i noticed flight attendant closing gate door and ran over but the door was shut. i hit call button repeatedly until attendant came back out and i explaind situation the plain was still connected to gate and she refused to let me on the plain. i checked in and got my ticket at 7:41 pm i was there my baggage with all my belonging (everything i own) clothes ect is now in phoenix i am still in indiana i had an appointment to have surgery on shouloder and now have to wait and make another appointment after the first as i am on disability an d only get 720 a month. i called costomer support to try and get another flight seeing as how i paid for one i was not able to use and was denied. I asked to speak with a supervisor and then was denied by supervisor i asked to speak with the supervisors superviser and was told they didnt have time to talk with me i then tryed to contact corperate office and could not get ahold of anyone so i assume people are treated in this manner on a regular basis i have documented all of my actions and responses by company personnel and am currently seeking legal aid

Spirit airline double charges for bags. First they have you pay $34.00 online for you bag, then they charge you again $50.00- $100.00 when you get to counter. That is a scam, it would have cheaper to fly Delta.
