| Houston to Los Angeles. I've flown Spirit many times. From Los Angeles to Vegas, New York, Seattle, etc. I am always able to pack a rather large bag as my carry on and measure it to make sure it fits within their requirements as a "personal item", so it's always free. I always fly with wife and son and they bring their own bags as well, for free. Depending on the type of year and destination, Spirit can be hundreds of dollars cheaper than any other airline. Also because I never check in a bag I never have to wait in line, use the self serve kiosk and you're done in a few minutes. The staff has always been helpful, professional, and friendly. I take a stroller with me, which is also free and they check it in for me at the gate as I'm getting ready to board. You do have to pay $7 to be able to choose your seats or you can let them choose. We've always let them choose and all 3 of us have always sat together. They don't have in flight entertainment but that helps keep the tickets so cheap - that's less money that they need to spend. I also love how they have the fake leather seats, I feel it's much more sanitary than the cloth seats. I've never had an issue with Spirit. There was one time my flight got delayed due to weather but you know what, It happens. And the delay was maybe 2 hours. For everyone complaining that they couldn't get their money back for a missed flight, etc. It just sounds like you didn't take advantage of the $13 warranty that they offer. I've flown with Virgin, Delta, Alaska, United, Southwest, etc, and have had all the issues from cancelled flights to lost baggage and Spirit still remains to be my favorite.
