Just read up more on their policies. You can only bring 1 carry-on item including any personal items. That's crazy. You can't bring a bag + a backpack or a purse, etc. It's just 1 item per person. Hmm... this may turn out not to be an option for me anymore...

FYI I can get a slightly different flight VCE-MRS for $83.50 pax on AF. Allows 1 carryon and 1 personal item + a more established airline. Might just be worth it.

To tell you the truth, I never flew Spirit. Perhaps this makes me a terrible son, but my parents like to fly Spirit and they seem to like it.

I started googling around and found out that if you don't pre-print your boarding pass, Ryanair will charge you 70 pounds, not dollars, for them to print it.

Does anyone have real experience with them?

70 Pounds? Seriously?  :o That's probably more than they charge for much of the tickets they sell...

if you want a simple, cheap,  no frills, method of transporting yourself around europe then they are definitely the way to go. Yes, they will nickel and dime you. And no, you will not talk your way out of any fees that they think you owe.
But all you need is a chair to sit in, and you can manage without drinking for a couple hours, and you are not checking luggage, then their prices are hard to complain about

You have to assume. They are out to get you. They are looking for ways to nickel and dime you so don't give them an excuse. Yes they are very strict with the carry on dimensions. The size must comply with what is posted on their website (including wheels). I saw 3-5 people check their backs at the gate and pay the higher fee when I flew CIA to LIN. They will definitely charge you an exorbitant amount if you don't print your boarding pass from home as well. Ryanair is worse than spirit. They advertise during your flight when you are trying to sleep or listen to music.
@Yehuda, Air France is worth the extra money without a doubt.
