With any flight, you get for what you pay. Spirit doesn't allow you to choose your seat for free, bring a carryon bag for free, or have water/snacks in the flight for free. I knew all of that going into the flight, so I wasn't disappointed. My flight was only 1.5 hours, so I was okay with all of those factors. If I were flying 2.5+ hours, I would have chosen an airline that provides more amenities. For the purposes of this short trip, I went with cheap. And I would do it again!
