We live in Palm Beach County. Fly spirit every year from Fll to Sxm. Never a problem( yet) . I fly spirit a lot you just have to know all the tricks. Purchase bags at time of booking . Can't beat the fares. We go back and forth to NJ in the winter usually under $100 RT. You get what you pay for.

We flew Spirit the first time last weekend from FLL to SXM. I must say it was better than I feared. We booked one larger bag (weight limit is 40 lbs or 10 lbs less than other airlines but enough for us). The flight was on time and $250 less than competitors so saved us $1,000 for four tickets. Seat room okay. They assigned our group of four together on all flights so we did not have to purchase assigned seats. We took empty water bottles and had snacks with us so only purchased one beverage.

Seats do not have any padding. None. They are plastics shells covered in leather but were not uncomfortable. I would fly them again.

For me lower cost and better flight times from dfw to sxm. No issues yet and have used them a few times.

We flew the FLL-STT many times when we kept our boat there. We usually paid around $100 each way but we always bought the big front seat for $50 extra. Well worth it to us.

We have used it many times to different places with only an occasional problem. One year my husband return flight from SXM had a problem but they did put them up overnight with. minimal food credits and got a flight out the next day (Sunday) I will use because we are in Florida near FLL and I would chance Spirit out of FLL rather than anything out of Miami! Have had some horrendous flights this year on AA, UA etc. so it's rolling dice anyway. They are very upfront about being a no frills airline. Just my opinion

We feel the same way. They have been very good to us especially when they had a problem.
