Spirit Airlines is a spirit breaker, a dream breaker and a stupid airline. Cancel a flight with notice when you are on your way to airport for a 6:00 am flight. A flight for a first solo trip to a gaming convention, 2 night hotel stay prepaid and entry fee paid. ALL LOST. No refunds on entry fee, no refund on prepaid hotel package. No refund on gas money of two teenager driving from Wisconsin to pick passenger up a Chicago airport.
Spirit's response, we can book you on Sunday (by the way gaming convention over) or refund money. Last minute airfare to Chicago or here where near is $800, lowest found is $400 but funds are from teenagers debit card and of course, refund balance not available.
Spirit has no sympathy for passengers, no compulsion to be truthful to passengers. Flight cancelled due to weather - other flight were departing from flight's originating airport, why not Spirit - did they not pay the gate fees and can't get planes out?
DO NOT BOOK WITH SPIRIT - LOW FARES MAYBE BUT MOST LIKELY THE FLIGHT WON'T
TAKE OFF AND YOU ARE AT THE DAY OF DEPARTURE, HOUR OF DEPARTURE WITH NO WAY TO GET TO WHERE YOU WANT TO GO.
Spirit's other alternative, will change your flight due to cancellation one time without fee, but if it happens a second time, you have to pay for rebooking fee. NOT!!
