Review: Spirit Airlines Low-Cost Carrier
In my experience, there is truth in this perception. But as with most low-cost carriers, Spirit is misunderstood by a large group of budget travelers who make the false assumption that low-cost carriers are the same as traditional air carriers, only cheaper.
It pays to familiarize yourself with Spirit’s approach to air travel before you make non-refundable bookings with the airline.
