Spirit Airlines Complaint - Low Fares a Fiasco: Hidden Fees
We booked travel from NYC to Ft. Lauderdale for a 10 year old and a 16 year old, only because of Spirit's low fares (we usually travel by Jetblue.) At no time was anyone told that the kids would be treated as unaccompanied minors until they went to the airport, not only did they have to pay $25 for baggage, but a whopping $100 additionally although a relative went to the gate with them and no-one from Spirit was there to supervise them. What a waste, the 16 year old is more mature than a lot of the employees we meet on these airlines.
I always disliked this airline, now, no-one I know will be flying with them in the future!
