Spirit is a cattle car operation that picks the willing customers pockets. I would never fly them, it seems they cater to the Walmart crowd.

Urge caution using credit cards when flying this carrier. I allowed a relative to use my card a little over a year ago for a ticket on Spirit. Exactly one year later they charged another sixty (60) buck to that card. It was hell getting a credit for the charged amount. Personally, I would hitch-hike rather than use this carrier.
