I will never fly Spirit Airlines again. Their so called $9 flights are nothing more than a old style "bait and switch" tactic. I thought that was illegal?? When I added the $107 Fuel Charge, plus the $46 bag check fee ($23 each way), the $124.95 in fees and taxes, the total came to $286.95. Then when we arrived at the airport, our luggage was over the revised 40lb weight, so we had to pay an additional $25 each way per bag, bringing the total to $336.95 per ticket! And by the way, since we did not want to pay the additional pre-seating fee (another $10 each way) , my girlfriend and I ended up sitting separately on the flight from Detroit to Cancun. And oh, that doesn’t include the $59 I paid to become a $9 club member, for a whopping total of $395.95 for a $9 ticket!
To make things worse, once on the 3.5 hour flight NOTHING IS COMPLIMENTARY! You pay for water, coffee, pop, peanuts, pretzels, and anything else you want. I'm sure charging to use the bathrooms is on the horizon.
Never again for me! I'll stick to the full service airlines; AA, Delta, United, Continental etc... Flying Spirit just doesn't pay!
