Spirit airlines is ridiculous. As a long time American Airlines veteran, I truly believed them to be the worst.
I was shown the error of my ways. They charge $55 for a carry on bag! Even the pilot joked about his pre-*** speech being the only thing free on this airline. They required NASCAR like maintenance right before taking off and immediately upon landing which is fairly alarming.
This was just the departing flight. The return flight was cancelled and rebooked nearly 12 hours later then delayed nearly 5 hours making the arrival 3am. During this time we heard delays due to "no gas" and "no crew". Their help line is a joke that is either totally unmanned or busy at all points.
At least American can put you on a bigger plane to help alleviate cancellations. They have no options most likely as all their planes are under going maintenance.
Reason of review: Pricing issue.
