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 - it looked old & outdated.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.
