Spirit Airlines Flights Information

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.

Spirit canceled the flight and notified me at the last minute with out a option to get home until 3 days later. Spirit was not concerned or made other options available. Had to fly to Dallas Tx , rent a car then drive home to Houston. Spirit did not try to accommodate us for the inconvenience and when asked for a supervisor the CSR became very rude. I will never fly spirit again very bad experience!!!!

As an economist, I like your policy. If you want to fly and pay only want you want, than I recommend Spirit Airlines. Nobody should be made to pay for something he/she doesn't need. Other Airlines include in their airfares, food I may not need and luggage I may not carry

I never flew with Spirit because they messed up a different flight a few weeks prior. I actually never even made it to my destination to Minnesota that weekend and so after that horrible experience I canceled my denver flight and flew with Southwest to Denver. I've never flown Spirit and I NEVER will.

They canceled their flight and just get back my flight ticket amount. I had to buy same day ticket to NY. It is their fault and they have to change my flight to the other airlines if they canceled your flight but they did nothing. I had to pay $ 250 more from their fault. I never flight Spirit Airlines and buy flight ticket from you which I didn't know the airlines. Hope you can read and do something for this issue. thanks

This transaction for my ticket was not charged to my account, so although I had received a confirmation for my flight back, when I arrived at the airport they advised me there was no ticket! I was absolutely outraged by the situation and had to purchase a new ticket for $455 dollars one way back to dallas!!!!

Flying Spirit Has be be the worst airline on earth. I felt like a second class customer.. not even a class of water on a four flight. It has an horrible exprience, nickled and dimed going and coming. Profits mean more to them than loyal customers and they let you know it. Greyhound treats you better than this.

Philadelphia International Airport - Las Vegas Mccarran International Airport (PHL - LAS)
This is a terrible airline. When we first checked in the ticket agent Mia Glover had a very nasty attitude. She threw our luggage down and damaged it. She needs to be fired because I know I'm not the only one she's treated like this. As for the flight I'm small and the amount of space for leg room is crazy ridiculous. No room to breathe. You pay for EVERYTHING!!!! Buy the time we added in the bags and something to drink going and coming we would have been better off flying Southwest. It would have been worth it. They want you to sign up for their credit card. What?

Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson - Las Vegas Mccarran International Airport (ATL - LAS)
I tried to transfer my ticket to my other child and they wouldn't let me and when they gave credit for cancellation, they only give it to the person who is flying and not to the person paying for it. They also lost my luggage and I didn't get it until 3am even though I flew in the day before at 7:30PM.

New York La Guardia - Las Vegas Mccarran International Airport (LGA - LAS)
Luggage fares are ridiculous. Carry-on was higher than check-in. Check-in fares were higher than most airlines. Planes were disgustingly dirty, stewardess were not friendly or helpful, one was even nasty. I understand you are trying to keep your fares low, but I don't think I would ever take Spirit Airlines again with such additional fees, dirty aircraft and unfriendly stewardesses. I will pay a little more in other airlines but 1st luggage and carry-on is free and the service is so much better; not to mention the cleanliness of the aircraft. Never mind that Spirit had to charge even for water, etc. but the service was not worth the $50 savings in fare!

Orlando International - Los Angeles Intl Airport (MCO - LAX)
when I chose this airlines it was because the price was really good. By the time I had to pay for my assigned seats, my carryon, additional for my luggage over 40lbs, the excessive taxes, a soda on the flight and I can't remember what all else I could have flown more comfortably on another airlines.

Orlando International - Detroit Metro (MCO - DTW)
It seemed like a reasonable price but they nickle and dime you all along the rest of the way. I was told TWICE over the phone that one carryon bag is allowed and then they charged me DOUBLE the price of my little bag RIGHT BEFORE I BOARDED. This almost came out to the price of my plane ticket. I also required an itemized receipt for work which they couldn't provide. I will never fly Spirit again. Never had a problem with another flight

Remind people that Spirit is NOT a regular airline, but BOTTOMLINE BUGET airline. Be ready for 2-3 hour boarding delays in BOTH directions with absolutely NO amenities and following the luggage requirement or pay $100 for your bag.

Chicago O'hare International Airport - Lima J Chavez Intl (ORD - LIM)
Can not move the seat back. It s ok for short fly but is not ok for 5 or 6 hours fly . At least serve drink on the plane. It was cheaper than other airline but if add up all luggage fees and buy drink then it about same as other airline but at least other airline have comfortable seat and allow 50 lbs instead of 40 lbs for checked bag, carry on is free.
