How do we know that customers can save millions each year flying Spirit? It’s not just about ticket prices, but also all those items that customers may or may not use on their trips.
You see, all those “complimentary” items and services not only require time, people and money to manage, but they also weigh down the plane. That means more money for gas and more people to pay.
Most of these costs are based on what Spirit charges for such items.* The difference is we allow you to pick and choose what you want instead of assuming you want all these services and then bundling them into your airfare, like other airlines.
*Items that Spirit doesn’t offer (in-flight entertainment, reclining seats, Wi-Fi, magazines) are calculated based on use of gas, maintenance, installation, employee effort and distribution.
