If a customer finds that he's paying $200 less with Spirit Airlines than he would with the respectable competing airline, he must realize that this is only because Spirit Airlines has found a way to charge an equivalent amount in fees later in the trip process. Spirit Airlines will do so in a shameless and dehumanizing manner. They will lie to you and tell you that they're just trying to save you money. Spirit airlines will not budge for a personal item that is even an inch bigger than what their steel box instructs is the max size. Spirit airlines will humiliate its customers. Spirit airlines does not care about its customers. Spirit airlines is not even staffed by feeling human beings; it seems to actively pursue heartless nickel-and-dime-ing shameless people.
Don't fly with Spirit Airlines, it only -seems- cheaper.
