    I'm scheduled to fly back home for the weekend. I decided to fly spirit since it was near a third of the cost of delta. I even got the big seat.

    Unfortunately the flight is delayed 5 hours. Wtf. That's what I get for being a cheap fuck .


    Those who are considering to fly spirit, don't do it.

    Update.

    Flight has been cancelled. For the inconvenience, spirit has issued me a 50 dollar flight credit.

    Well I guess I gotta pay extra. Just got a one way ticket from delta for 758. Leave in a few hours.

    That sucks. I need to get back home. I got too much stuff lined up.

    Lesson learned. I hope vmb can take this as a purely educational review. Dont be a cheap fuck.

    We take so much luggage that Southwest ends up just as cheap for us.

    Sorry about the hassle, RB. That's some weak shit. But thanks for the PSA and hope you made (or will make) it home without too much more crap to deal with.

    A guy i work with took spirit to vegas last week(I warned him), he was raped on his bags(they said it was like 2 lbs overweight)charged him an extra &75, then on the flight home it was cancelled, they did put him up in a hotel for another day but he had to fly home to Mn through seatlle on alaskan airlines. To me it's not worth all that hassle and worry to save maybe $40.

    Probably should be in the GETTING THERE AND GETTING AROUND section.

    In any event, lesson learned. Avoid airlines with little to no back up plans or options.

    Feel ya!

    Nothing worse then getting stuck in a Airport,:grrr::grrr:
    Especially when they (the Airline) know the plane is not going anywhere &
    don't notify the passengers, & leave you hanging so you can't catch an alternative flight out.

    Reddick Don't take spirit from the East coast.

    I only fly it since there is a lot going from Dallas to Vegas. So if it is delayed I go later and in Vegas I can get a few more hours at the casino. Always book an extra day.


    I don't plan on taking spirit i just do some times but it is only a 2.5 hour flight for me and I'm use to spirit being late.

    I'd rather fly American

    I've been asked for my opinion about Spirit before and I always tell them this...

    Did you ever see the movie "Soul Plane" with Snoop Dogg? If so, it's just as ghetto.

    I'm with you pp. I'm glad your flights have never been cancelled to/from Vegas when you flew spirit from your TR. That would be such a bummer. We'll have to meet up sometime man.

    Only fly spirit if you have plenty of time. Not in rush to get to Vegas or home.

    Flights have been delayed but not cancelled.

    I only fly then when I'm I. No rush to get to Vegas and back and always book extra night in Vegas. So I always have a room there and do not check out till I'm at home.

    Last flight a bunch of people said that this soul plane without the dance club on top

    Oh most said they would never fly it again.

    Still my ticket was less that the airport parking.

    So. It has its advantages and disadvantages.

    Spirit is pretty much the only airline that flies directly to Atlantic City. That shows you how screwed that city has become.
