Spirit Airlines - Don't EVER Fly on Spirit Unless You Have Money to Burn
BOSTON -- I bought my ticket through Orbitz because it got me good deals. The ticket it got me from Boston to Dallas was through Spirit airlines.
I learned the hard way that cheap is never cheap.
When I got to the airport I was told my one piece of baggage was to big so I was going to have to pay an additional $50.00 fee. I didn't understand why since this bag had been allowed to be carry on on every single other flight on my trip (four airlines in all). But I got in line to pay the fee.
At the counter, the woman told me that my bag was small enough and I wouldn't have to pay the fee. I thanked her and went on.
At the gate as I was boarding, this SAME WOMAN told me my bag was too big and I would now have $100.00 since I didn't pay at the check in counter.
When I argued with her she became rude and belligerent.
All attempts to contact Spirit airlines has been futile.
