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%.
