If your expectations are for a cheap seat to Newark and nothing else then go for it. If you are expecting a high quality seat and expedience then stay away. It is all in your expectations.

Also, low cost carriers don't have any deals with other airlines.  So if something goes wrong with your flight, they won't seat you on another airline.
These airlines often have tight schedules and fewer planes. So a plane may fly from MIA to NYC and then back again and again.  If something goes wrong, you just have to wait for the plane to be fixed or whatever, they don't have a replacement one to take up the slack.

BREAKING: SPIRIT EMPLOYEE GRANTS COURTESY

An employee of Spirit Airlines allegedly granted a request from a passenger, the Associated Press reported.

The unnamed passenger reportedly asked if they can be moved to an open exit row. In a move heralded by civil rights leaders as a once-in-a-lifetime milestone, the crew member granted the courtesy, allowing the passenger to have the empty seat and enjoy the accompanying extra leg-room.

"Since women got their right to vote, I don't think there has been any single act that has encapsulated the advent in human rights as much as this one," the ADL and the NAACP said in a joint statement.

The employee was immediately fired from his job, with the airline citing a violation of policy as the cause.

"We don't give anything for free," Spirit CEO Edward Christie told reporters. "This employee risked the reputation of our company for a senseless act. He should never have been hired."

DW has flown Spirit on a number of occasions, and has fully appraised me of what it's been like. Based her her experiences, I have determined to try to never fly the airline.

I will pay significantly more to avoid flying Spirit, and so far, I've never been in a situation when tickets on other airlines were so much more that it would compensate the extra charges Spirit gifts you with.

I always buy a good seat.

At times it can be significantly better priced then competitors thus making it worthy even after factoring in the seat cost....

I did not directly address customer service. The point was that they don't give ANYTHING for free, not even a better seat when it's not being used.

1) Spirit doesn't charge for "things most other airlines give for free" because airlines don't give anything for free.
When you fly Delta, you HAVE to pay for your 6 ounce diet coke pretzels, your cabin bag, seat selection your seat in your airfare. It's not free.
When you fly spirit, you can choose not to pay and therefore not receive.

2)Delta, American, and JetBlue don't allow passengers to take a better seat when open. I know this because I've been denied a better seat by them all recently.
Spirit on the other hand:
I didn't "manage" to get an exit row. I asked nicely once on board.

And this wasn't the first time Spirit has reseated me when I requested.

They are offering a $50 voucher in addition to the Reservation Credit via the cancellation SMS system. Though there are DPs stating that this voucher is only good for part of the fare and not the “fees” which are part of the fare.

Anyone have insight on this?

Just had Spirit cancel my cheap tix. Bummer.

They are offering a $50 voucher in addition to the Reservation Credit via the cancellation SMS system. Though there are DPs stating that this voucher is only good for part of the fare and not the “fees” which are part of the fare.

Anyone have insight on this?

Read the thread title.
Everyone realizes that you are not getting five star service if you fly on a budget airlines. A lot of kinks that can come up, I would imagine are a result of the airlines being on a limited budget so less resources are used to iron them out. Therefore I find it a little unreasonable to complain about every thing that goes wrong on a spirit (or lack thereof) flight. You want better service and higher standards? Pay more for your darn ticket! You get what you pay for.

Ha That's only bc you managed to get an Exit seat
I was in  United flight and the flight attendant didn't let someone change into the empty exit row because it's a premium seat.

I also heard someone asking the lady at boarding, if there's a bathroom on the plane🤣

how did they know it wasn't his seat? Did he ask to sit there?
When I buy a basic ticket, I always make sure to be the last to board and then self upgrade...

Happened to me a couple of times, back when I flew UA domestically.
