| Purchased flight on March 3. Everyone has mixed feelings about this airline but I wanted to see for myself. Of course, to not be surprised by hefty fees at the airport it’s best to purchase everything online at booking. Yes, everything. From your luggage, carryon to your seat. Being as though Spirit is a budget airline, you have to pay for everything a la carte, which allows for more space for luggage and passengers (as I was told). Downloaded the app to be more efficient but, it barely worked and customer service over the phone barely spoke English so I just rolled with the bunches. Received my itinerary via email days prior. Flown to Fort Lauderdale, FL on Wednesday March 13 from Baltimore, Md. Prior to checking in, I had issues logging into my app (and online. Not sure why). Checked in at home the night before, just to make sure I had time for TSA the day of. Got to BWI, and was greeted by easy to use kiosks to print out boarding passes and luggage tags. Easy right? Yup Turned my bag in and headed to TSA, which was pretty packed but it was also 5am so it was to be expected. Headed to the gate, and saw that their terminal was fairly small, but clean. Boarding was a breeze, as I was in Zone 1. Greeted by friendly flight attendants and the pilot and co-pilot. Finding my seat was easy, even though I should have selected a window seat but oh well. Aircraft was super clean and well lit, but extremely cold, even when I turned the vents off. Seats are a bummer though. They do not recline and they aren’t as padded as Southwest or American but fairly comfortable for what we pay for. Seat tray in front was super tiny and barely have leg room, unless you pay for the “Big seat” up front or select row 25, which is the exit. Take off was smooth and we actually arrived at Fort Lauderdale 15 early. Flight back home was a breeze too, however the flight was over sold from what I overheard. Attendants were super sweet and aircraft was clean as well My overall experience with Spirt was a great one.
