Spirit Airlines is the Actual Worst: A Review

There have been few times when I fly and swear off an airline completely. One of those times is when I flew Spirit Airlines a couple of years ago. I don’t know how broke I was or if I was in dire straits, but the price of the ticket is what got me. I think I paid $145 for a round-trip ticket to Florida. I did all types of jigs because I couldn’t believe it! I thought it was too good to be true.

It was.

I got to the airport with carry-on luggage only and they tell me it’s $35 each way. Wait. Wayment. $35??? I told them the butler named Jeffrey that was clearly coming to take my bag and stow it at the top of my seat for me wasn’t necessary. I can carry my own bag. But nawl. They said no butler. It just costs $35. MUTHAFUNKAS FAH WUT? Ugh. I should have read the fine print. Or their website. I had never heard of such foolishness.

Then I was thirsty but was being cheap so I didn’t wanna buy the $3 bottle of water from one of those Hudson News stores. I figured I’d just wait to get on the flight and get something to drink from the air hostesses. I saddowned in the plane when it was time and started reading one of the magazines behind the seats. There’s a menu for regular stuff like soda and water. Oh. O__O

facepalm shame gif

WAIT A GAHTDAMB minute! I gotta pay to have my thirst quenched too??? NAWL, B. I gotta pay for a measly cup and swig of juice? What kind of life is this? Chile… but I paid it. I was left choiceless, lest I want to land and my throat is left feeling like sandpaper. The dry air of the plane plus my parched-ness woulda left me dehydrated dinnamug. I didn’t wanna live that life. And let’s not even talk about how the seats were so small they could only be comfortable to toddlers.

I was expecting them to walk over and tell me there’s a surcharge for seatbelts too. Clearly everything was à la carte. Had I flown with American Airlines, which is where I have frequent flier miles, I wouldn’t have to worry about none of this.

Spirit Airlines NAWL

That’s what I got for trying new things and being too cheap. Ol’ raggelly Spirit Airlines. Charging for everything. You’d think all those surcharges would make them great but nawl. They’re the Rush Card of airlines.

NOW, Spirit announced that starting in November, they’re gonna start charging $100 for carryon luggages that don’t fit under seats. So anyone who wants to travel with anything more than a baby’s backpack will basically be paying $100 MORE.


That’s just plain ol’ tomfoolery and haberdashery. Spirit Airlines is not e’em remotely about that life, and they clearly need to carry their cloud dereon duffles and go. Why are they still in business? Why are people indulging them in their subparity?

The folks who run that airline must not want nice things.

fail like this gif

No country for Spirit Airlines. Not e’em a municipal or county or zip code. They need to go. They’re janky and got the nerve to be adding super fees like that makes any sense. You end up buying a ticket for the low low of $120, and by the time all the fees are added AFTER you get to the airport, you’re paying $300. AND you don’t even get anything with that. That’s so foolish. I ain’t the one.

Never again. Spirit Airlines is the FUBU of aviation and I ain’t got the TAHM.

And if any of the folks I love want to fly it, I’d tell them “Don’t do it, Ms. Celie. It ain’t worf it!”

Have you ever flown Spirit? Did you kiss the ground when you landed? Do you wonder why they’re the Old Country Buffet of Aviation? Tell a G.

    Ha I had a friend who flew them religiously and really hyped everything about this airline, and I always thought, you might as well pay for a decent airline and get the same results if not better by the time you pay for the bag fees, food, and all that stuff, and I saw them talking about more fees.

    I flew spirit one time and I had to take a Tylenol pm to make it through the flight. I was like did they go to the place where planes die to get there parts. It was so awful that I have been trying to block that experience from my memory.

    Awww I wish someone would have told me. I just flew with them and was hit with the same surcharges. The website was confusing for the bags so I ended up buying a carry-on instead of a checked bag…well to make the change over the phone (I called within minutes after doing it) it was $16. Ridiculous…then the seats on the plane don’t even recline, its a tight space. You have to pay to sit next to your friend. I will never fly Spirit again as long as I live. I’d rather walk.

    • May 29, 2012 at 9:53 am

    This is the same airline that refused to refund the ticket of a dying veteran with cancer. The CEO went on record saying the guy should have bought insurance, customer complaints are irrelevant, and has successfully cultivated a corporate culture of IDGAF.

    Folks always complain about Spirit Airlines but they are always booked ($9 fares are always compelling) should take a look at RyanAir.

    This is the outfit who has floated plans for a standing room only flights, charging for restroom access, no overhead bins, you taking your checked luggage to the planes.

    If you thought Spirit was bad, you don’t remember ProAir, this was a airline that had a plane repossessed on the tarmac.

    Delta has always taken care of me when I travel.

    • TeeNikki
      June 8, 2012 at 10:26 pm

      No. The repo man did NOT pull up on the tarmac. I refuse to believe it, because I just ate and laughing that hard would cause me to have prollums.

    • February 28, 2013 at 12:03 am

      Wait?!? Repo’d on the tarmac? Hahahaha *inhales* hahahaha

  16. May 29, 2012 at 3:02 pm

    I flew Spirit once and that was two times too many! Worst experience ever. I was irate at all the fees I had to pay and this was before they really got buck wild and started tacking all kinds of nonsense fees on to the tickets. How they are allowed to exist with their “eff you, fly me” ways is beyond me.

    But, yeah, I’m all about that Southwest life. How can you live in Chicago and not fly Southwest? Girl, that’s all I fly when I can and although you may pay a little more, they are upfront with their prices and you can’t beat the two free pieces of luggage.

    I was fooled by a friend who hyped up Spirit as the greatest gift to aviation so I subscribed to the $9 fare club. I aint never gotten a $9 flight. Ever. I get so mad everytime I fly and they charge me for my bags and have you sitting there parched. And dont waste your time buying the food. It is just straight nasty. They started out charging $19 a bag. When they reached $35 for carry-on I had to say cut the crap. Its NOT worth it at all. They are raggedy as hell. My butt will ne’er grace the seat of a Spirit airline ever again!

  19. JL
    May 29, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Ha, I flew American Airlines from Portland OR to Dallas Tx, then on to ORlando. They charged me $25 for checking a bag (bs) and then they gave me one can of pop for each leg of the trip. Never offered anything else and only came by twice. Once to give me the can and once to take it away. No chips, peanuts zip nada nothing. Glad I had a fruit bar in my bag. Now you want good service fly Alaska Airlines or Southwest only way to go anymore. They rest I would almost rather walk!

  20. Marsha S. Haneiph
    May 29, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    It is beyond ridiculous that any airline charges us for carry-on luggage. They already pack us in there like sardines. I’m petite and opt for aisle seats because I don’t like giving a stranger lap dances just to go use the loo…or getting them.

  21. May 30, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    I would rather catch the Spirit than fly U.S. Airways, EVERRRRRRRRRRRRR! Motherphakkkin bastards!

  22. May 30, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    Usually I’m in agreement with you but, unfortunately not this time. See, you’re not the target for Spirit. They are catering to a market of people who want to do a quick flight, no major baggage and are not interested in the frills. Get in, get flown and go home. To the person who just needs to fly somewhere with a big handbag for a couple days, it’s perfect.

    And from a marketing perspective, them charging you exorbitantly for extras is just saying ‘this is not a service we want to offer’. If they start including it, everyone will do it and that will bring prices up. Hence no $120 round trip tix.

    Hope this helps your view on things.

  23. May 31, 2012 at 12:39 am

    Northwest isn’t bad, but they’re based in Minneapolis. If you pass Minneapolis, you MUST go through Minneapolis, like my parents did when they flew from Memphis to Dallas. Yes, there was a 1000 mile side trip.

  24. May 31, 2012 at 2:02 am

    I flew Spirit many moons ago and loved it. Actually turned my mom on to them as well and she loved them as well. This was before all these fees you’re talking about, and haven’t flown them in ages so I’ll definitely keep that in mind in the future.

    I’ve flown Spirit ONCE and I never will again! It was a free flight, but the struggle cost so much more! I wanted to get off the plane mid-air when I spotted Ramen Noodles on the menu as an in-flight snack. And they had the #AURDACITY to charge like $3 knowing they’re $.38 in the store.

    I flew Spirit Air as my first experience on a plane ever! Worst thing to do. I live in the Bahamas and wanted to go to Florida for some shopping. The experience onboard was horrible. Crammed and I felt like it was about to rip apart. Thank God my fiance was there with me or I’d have had a bigger panic attack. I was suckered in by the price and found out later that there were surcharges- you had better believe that was the last time I flew with them.
    To make matters worse their Customer Service Agents (CSA) were horrible. Here I am lost as shit in Florida- make it to the airport with time to spear and the idiot says he can’t let me on. Something about rules etcetera after I stood on their line for 30 minutes. Lets just say my fiance turned into a real Caribbean guy and cussed the hell out of the CSA. A good portion of my shopping money went to them and their fees. Never ever ever again will we fly Spirit. Ain’t worth it!

    I flew Spirit from D.C. to San Francisco and the flight had to touch down for gas. I guess they were trying to fly across country on a quarter-tank of gas. I was waiting for the pilot to come out and ask everybody to chip in $5 so he could fill the tank.

    Spirit Airlines is the devil. My 10 year old couldn’t even fit in the seat. How about the fee for checked bags was $50 each way? On my way home a elderly lady tried to put her seat back. I lost all my cool. Then she hit me with the No Habla ingles. Well guess what I can tell you to raise that seat in Spanish. Spirit Airlines makes my ratchet show. Never again.

They are like the goddamn mad dog 2020 of airlines. I flew this airline a few years ago & they charge for EVERYTHING, I thought they were gonna charge me just to pee. The seats were uncomfortable, I have long legs so my struggle was real. Yeah that was the one and only time I flew with them.

    Nope, living in Chicago, I’m a United girl through and through. I reached silver status and have the United Explorer Card, so free checked bags (which you get with both). I get free Economy Plus seating, and all of my flights (so far) have been smooth sailing. We’re talking about 20+ flights in the past year.

    Now, RyanAir ain’t shyt. I almost got in an argument with the gate crew, trying to tell me I needed to check my small bag. I made it fit in that little display, and they still wanted me to check it. My voice got loud and my brother thought we were going to get in trouble. They let me get on the plane though, without having to check my bag, and it fit just fine overhead.

    I usually fly United and sometimes I mess with Southwest. Southwest is “the hood” of the airline industry. They got discounted flights, free bags, & jokes. I was impressed but wary because this is the same airline where the roof tore off mid flight some years ago. (Bruthas always got some drama with the roof, either it’s on fire, or we raising it, or it just ears off completely.) Virgin is also really good but pricey which makes United my first choice unless I’m on company dime.

    They just talked about Shyster Air on CBS Sunday Morning last Sunday. I knew their CEO was all about the shakedown when he sat there proclaiming that he’d never charge for use of the restroom, grinning like he’d just cured cancer. He had that same grin when he was challenged about how the seats on his planes are basically the size of a Tic-Tac and how he didn’t consider his nickel and diming his customers “fees.”

    I flew Spirit a little more than a month ago. It was the last time that I will fly with them. Did not know they only allow 40lbs vice 50lbs for luggage. Did know they charged for carry on. Did not know they charged for water. Did not know how unconcerned they would be when your flight is 4 hrs late and they act tlike it is the norm.

    Also when I reached my destination at 1 am and waited more than an hour for my luggage and because of day light savings time it is actually 2 am and you say sorry for the inconvenience, as i am leaving the airport after 3 am and everything is suppose to be okay. No, that means to me that you are sorry (not in a good way) and I won’t be flying you again. Because you have got my money and me having a horrible experience does not matter to you.

    So you’re mad because you didn’t read before you booked the flight? LOL but it’s somehow the fault of the airline? I was fine with Spirit. I got a flight to Miami that was 150 that would have usually cost me 400$.. if you pay to precheck your bag online they give you a discount. I’m just mad because now I don’t live anywhere they fly out of. :/

You can prepay everything before your flight at half the price. It’s cheap for a reason to get you from A to B. It’s not a luxury airline…… get what you pay for.

You can prepay everything before your flight at half the price. It’s cheap for a reason to get you from A to B. It’s not a luxury airline…… get what you pay for. Plus whomever wrote this article might want to take a corse in how speak English

    Spirit..the bad boy records of airlines. Raping your pockets since day 1.

    I’ve flown them before and had that exact reaction! “Never flying Spirit again!” I think they are spending all of their $ on good writers for their content marketing and emails! I recently got the most hilarious email I have ever received from a corporate airline. While it may not be Shakespeare–the subject line made me open it–and the witty naughty copy made me actually read through it and laugh. When is the last time you opened up a spam corporate email and read it all?! I’m including it below. And I am not making this shit up:

    We’re celebrating!
    We have a new plane!
    Fares In This Deal Just $69.00* Round Trip
    Includes Taxes & Fees!

    We’ve been waiting to hit 69 planes for years. It’s our favorite number – ever since we were twelve and found that magazine under our brother’s bed (the one with the fantastic articles). #69 is perfect: just the right size, with a cockpit that’s in your face (because it’s bright yellow). Use your mouth to spread the word: Spirit is in an even better position to get you where you’re going. $69.00* round trip. That’s $34.50* each way when traveling to select destinations on select dates in April 2015 and May 2015. Round trip purchase not required. These fares are limited in availability. All flights must be booked by 11:59 PM on March 17, 2015.

    Flew Spirit between New Orleans & Houston. Return flight was cancelled 2 days in a row & they REFUSED to pay for hotels, alternative travel arrangements, wouldn’t even bother to share a bus schedule after delaying the flight until after midnight before canceling the first time. Let me repeat, this was a plane filled with Houstonians/New Orleanians. Needless to say Airport Security was deeeeep…lol. Until this day, not so much as a “whoops, our bad” from the airline.

    Sounds like somebody should have done research. It would have taken less time than writing this lol

    HOMIE. I had the NERVE to fly spirit going to Vegas. Longest, most painful ride of my life. I didn’t read the fine print about the luggage, handed them my bag to go under and the chick was like $55 cause its heavy… I’m like… da faq? Whatever. Paid that, and then she was like do you want to pay for your carryon? I’m thinking she speaking to someone else. Nope… chick was looking at me dead in the face and had the audacity to say $35.. out her face! there and back. I thought I had room to bring stuff back from Vegas.. nope.
    My brother booked flights for us to go to Atlanta… he didn’t say with which airline till AFTER we booked. Its with demon Spirit Airlines. With my 100 year old granny. Like… she is going to talk enough sh!t to have the pilots ears ringing.
