I know bigger people that prefer spirit because the pay $40 and get the Big Front Seat. It is essentially a non lie flat J.
What do they get when Spirit offers a bus for transportation?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Like I said earlier, I just flew Spirit for the first time this Friday.

As someone who lives in PIT I am used  to flying in regional jets all the time. These seats were not small. Much better than the  domestic economy seats that I sit in 100 times a year.

How many times did that happen? But regardless, as Freddie said:
80%-95% are no big deal, just another LCC. It's the times when things go wrong, which could even be as low as 5%
So people that know spirit take into account that they will have little to no recourse.

I actually flew Spirit LGA-FLL several months ago, but would didn't buy the ticket in advance. I had a ticket on DL for the same time, I walked up to the Spirit ticketing counter, and only after I made sure the flight is actually departing (and that I was able to get a front row seat) did I purchase that ticket (saving a few $$ over buying online) and cancelled my DL ticket.

I would say with Spirit it's not only about their on-time performance, but about what happens when things go bad.

This is a game changer for me.
I generally don't fly spirit into/out of FLL because of the cost of getting there from MB.
Now that they will service MIA I will definitely be flying spirit more.
This will definitely impact Frontier.

Anyone aware of no cancellations within 7 days of the flight?
I wasn't aware and now I cannot cancel the flight, they will only give me travel credit minus 79 dollars per ticket!
Anything to do about this?

No. The regulation only requires a refund beyond 7 days out.

@Dan, ever flew spirit?
If not, try it once, so that we can get a full fledged trip report. :)
