1) Can you please list the "extra charges Spirit gifts you with"?
Spirit charges for things most other airlines give for free. For example: a drink on the plane.
How does pricing translate to customer service?
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.

You are welcome to disagree. I chose to be friends with people who don't...

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

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.

My friend flew spirit yesterday (he DID NOT ask my consent) and the CEO was on his flight.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

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.

Just saw that on my flight!
I also heard someone asking the lady at boarding, if there's a bathroom on the plane🤣
