Founded in 1980 (such youngins), Spirit Airlines is an ultra low-cost carrier based out of Miramar, Florida. They operate flights in the U.S. as well as South America, Latin America, the Caribbean and Mexico. Their operating hubs are in Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Detroit (DTW). As of 2016, Spirit remains the only 2-star airline according to Skytrax Airline Quality. We’ll let you decide how you want to take that.
Spirit Airlines is known for “low fares” but also charges you for just about everything else: bags, drinks, snacks, printing your boarding pass at the counter and selecting what seat you want. Basically, if you want to fly Spirit, just be prepared and you won’t have any hassles. And print your boarding pass at home!
Spirit Airline’s frequent flyer program is called FREE SPIRIT. Their On-Time Arrival Performance is probably why Skytrax downgraded them to 2-stars as it currently hovers around 68%. You can find more information about Spirit Airline baggage fees on FareCompare or start searching their flights now.
