There’s a reason why @SpiritAirlines is nicknamed “Break your Spirit”. Spend the extra money & save your sanity.

I flew them once @ 10 years ago. Have since referred to them as “Break Your Spirit Airlines”. Never again.

I booked a flight on Spirit because I thought there was no way they could mess up a 55 minute flight. They showed my ass.
