I flew Spirit about a month ago DTW-MYR and had no problems with the service or flight. If Spirit is any cheaper, I would recommend taking Spirit. You will get the same exact service LGA-DTW, whether its NWA or NK. I'd say the only difference will be having have to go through the older terminal and DTW, but its not bad.

DTW-LGA, NW often price matches Spirit, that being said you are probably better off flying NW as you will have more frequencies, a wider variety of aircraft to choose from (DC-9, A319/A320, or 757 dependent on the flight) vs. Spirit's MD-80's, and fly in/out of the Worldgateway in DTW, as opposed to the third-world dump called the LC Smith terminal.
Its up to you, whatever price you prefer and whether you have an FF account. Either way you'd be stupid to not take the nonstop on either one of these airlines.
Actually, I have no idea what the prices are, but American Eagle flies DTW-LGA also with ERJ's. If you want to ride on the jungle jet, then fly them, although unless the price was really good, I'd take the others.

Increase you life expectancy and ride on NW. There's no way I would let any of my family or friends ride on Spirit.....Yes I'm aware that I am going to take a shelling due to my airlines past safety record, but I have my reasons for avoiding Spirit.
Nice Trip Report!!! Great Pics, thanks for posting!!!! B747Forever

The only reason that I even brought up the Spirit flight was because my grandfather read that we could upgrade on Spirit for about the same price as Northwest's coach ticket, but in the end Northwest won out! Thank G-d.

While I've already booked my trip, I was wondering if anyone has ever flown on Spirit and could tell me what the experience was like. I figure for such a short flight, 1 hour and 49 minutes, that the service wouldn't be all that different between the two, but I could be wrong. Also, is the upgrade to Spirit Plus worth it?
