It got me from Atlantic City, NJ to Chicago O'Hare May 18, 2011
Spirit Airlines is a discount air carrier offering low cost fares to a variety of cities in the United States, the Caribbean and South America.

I flew Spirit Airlines from Atlantic City, NJ (ACY) to Chicago O'Hare (ORD) in early May of 2011.

Checking in at both ACY and ORD airports took no longer than any other airline and the staff was professional.

I did not check in a bag, carry-on bags are subject to a fee, except if you carry-on a bag the size of an average backpack. Please refer to website for specific dimensions and fees.

The flight was aboard an Airbus A319 (narrow body) the interior of the aircraft was presentable. The flight crew was professional.

Food and beverage service was available for a fee.

The only thing that I did not like was on the way into ORD, the flight attendants were trying to get folks to sign up for credit cards. While that was OK, it was the fact that they collected the applications in flight which bothered me. Due to the risks of identity theft, this should be avoided and the applications should be mailed in or information submitted online.

Overall, I would fly with Spirit Airlines again. But I suggest to travelers to consider (and compare the totality of) the baggage fees before booking and the underlying fare before booking.

Flying cheap to USA - Spirit Airlines Feb 05, 2009
We all now that flying is never cheap, so let's say better "less expensive" I don't know for how long Spirit Airlines are flying, but they opened the Peru-USA flight about 2 years ago. So far I traveled with them from Lima (Peru) - Fort Lauderdale (USA) & from Fort Lauderdale - Puerto Rico.

This is more a budget airline, so don't expect a great service, although the staff is helpful and kind. The tickets are cheap, but price will increase since they charge for baggage (except carry-on) and also for food.

I got some offers and sometimes couldn't believe how cheap the flights were. So if you are just going for a couple of days, why can't you just take a carry on? Also, their distances are not long, so a few hours without amenities wouldn't harm you - you can also have your music and a book with you.

Well, so far the crew I met there were always helpful and friendly. Maybe because it's more informal / familiar. I usually fly to the States because of work with the big airlines, but if I'm looking for a budget flight, I'll do a research in Spirit's website. Be aware that the cities they fly into are not the biggest ones.
