Spirit charges for things most other airlines give for free. For example: a drink on the plane.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.

But are we really having a discussion about this topic?
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.

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.
1) Can you please list the "extra charges Spirit gifts you with"?
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."
How does pricing translate to customer service?

what other alternative can I do domestic for a quick weekend getaway (must include kosher food and cheap flying of course)?
I would advise you to come down to Miami Beach.
Everything is pretty much okay down here.
The restaurants are all open with outdoor seating. Some restaurants are offering up to 20% off your bill. The hotel rates are incredibly low. Hotels that usually go for $500/Night are below $150/Night. I was on the beach this morning and it was heavily underpopulated.
There is a curfew in place at 10 PM but it really just is for stores.

I don't feel less safe now than I felt over the past few months. Don't get scared off by the news.

Never
I figured you haven't flown them.
I don't think you should be mouthing off against something that you never experienced. You have multiple post on this thread that are very harsh. You insinuate from your posts that you have flown spirit and have had only disastrous experiences. Don't speak negatively about something that you don't know about.

Actually, there were too many empty rows to count. I didn't "manage" to get an exit row. I asked nicely once on board.

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.

Frontier will reimburse you for up to $200 of a ticket purchase on a different airline.
