is flying Spirit REALLY not recommended?
There's a super cheap fare from Orlando to Newark, but if it's a bad idea, I won't do it.
Would love some insight, please.

TIA

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.

Maybe because they don't want you to starve to death waiting for their delays. They surely are not giving you actual food.

I don't know if that's standard procedure or just covid procedure.

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

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."

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.

no need to take this personal
