Spirit Airlines Compliment - $20.80 Tickets Are Great!
Yes, Spirit Airlines does have the cheap tickets and they do work! We spent $20.80 round trip before taxes & airport fees from Washington DC to Ft Lauderdale, June 2009. While waiting to take off on the runway in DC, a major thunder storm hit causing us to wait on the runway for about 3 hours. Then in the airport for about an hour. Then back on the plane for about 2.5 hours before taking off. THE SPIRIT AIR STAFF COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER! They were terrific considering the situation. The plane was relatively new with comfortable seats. We were expecting really small seats but they were about the same size as other airline seats we have seen. The leg room was just fine, again not what we were expecting. They had EXTREMELY quick service getting our bags to the pickup area. In fact, on our return trip to DC, our bags were at the pickup area by the time we walked there. On the flight back from Ft Lauderdale to DC, we were on a plane with OLD seats that had little to no cushion to speak of, which made for a very uncomfortable trip.
However, considering the tickets were dirt cheap, how could we possibly complain? We will surely fly Spirit Air again, and of course we will wait on the super cheap sale prices!
