I didn't like anything and would probably never fly on Spirit again. I cannot blame anything on the crew because they did their best given their limitations. Boarding was late and poor. Airplane lacked any modern facility (USB, No monitors, etc.) - it looked old & outdated. Spirit Airlines charge lower to bait potential travelers. Worst they do not answer telephone calls and if they do, only give excuses. They are crooks; thieves.

Price of ticket was good, but the in-flight experience for business class was lacking. Unlike business class on other airlines, there was no menu outlining the food and beverage options. Upon boarding, I was asked, "what would you like to drink?" I replied, "what do you have?" The flight attendant responded with, "what do you want?" If I had a menu, I would be able to see what was available. Additionally, usually when you board business class on other airlines, the crew has champagne or juice on hand to serve. The flight crew, while relatively nice, did not wake me up for breakfast, even though my do not disturb button was not on. Furthermore, in my prior experience, there is typically frequent food/beverage service for a long-haul flight of 12 hours. For this flight, besides the initial drink and warm nuts served at boarding, only dinner and breakfast was served for a 10+ hour flight. Overall, this flight felt like economy class with lay-flat seats.
