The company moto is "BARE FARE" and that's exactly what you get but then everything needed afterwards has a fee. From the luggage to the drinks/snacks, you pay. So the impression you have of getting a deal disappears very quickly! Thank God it was my birthday so I was willing to let loose but really not as good of deal! The crew is awesome though, I'll give them that.

The false impression of getting a deal when in fact it's not a deal at all. Be upfront and charge whatever needs to be charged and let the customer make up its mind.

So cramped even for a short flight. I had a knee injury and when the man in front reclined his seat, it was against my knee the entire time. I couldn’t get the side handle up to let inside passengers out for the restroom. Two crew members saw the struggle and didn’t offer to help.

Initial reservation does not prompt to select seats. The online screen to reserve or change seats is very dumb, there is no explanation as to what is available vs what's reserved

There was no announcement of a delay but our flight ended up being delayed >3.5hrs even though Virgin continued to list it as "on time" on the main board in the boarding area. The same thing happened on our return flight where the flight was delayed ~1hr, but continued to be listed as "on time" or "departed" on all of the airport departures boards. The gate we ended up boarding through (on a flight to Newark) was labeled as for JFK. There were very few announcements and no explanations for these oddities.

The boarding went smoothly but we also got to the gate on time. The legroom seem to be bigger than other planes.

It’s my first time I booked Spirit and it might be the last one. I was surprised that we paid $200 more of the fare we paid on Kayak. Some of the crew are friendly but passengers don’t seem to listen to them especially when we were taking off and the seatbelt sign was on. People are standing up to go to the lavatory. One person went twice! One It took an hour to turn off the seatbelt sign. The plane is new but it stinks. No form of entertainment at all. No TV or music which it should’ve been fine but they charged us more than I anticipated to pay.

I paid $190 to "upgrade" to what was only a bulkhead seat. This was VERY MISLEADING and I would NEVER HAVE PAID THE MONEY had this been properly identified as a normal bulkhead seat. I needed a seat that reclined further than a regular economy seat for a long haul flight because of a back injury and this seat recline less than 2". I could not distract myself with the advertised premium video because the HEADPHONE JACK WAS BROKEN and when I called for a flight attendant she took 15 minutes to respond What would have happened had that been an emergency?

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days. Fares are subject to change and may not be available on all flights or dates of travel. Some carriers charge additional fees for extra checked bags. Please check the carriers' sites.
