I flew out of SJU to FLL on Spirit last Dec. The line at the ticket counter formed early and was long, but they did a good job getting the people through. The agents were very nice and helpful too.
Once onboard their MD80, the ride was fairly comfortable. The equipment was not all that old, but I forget the year. The inflight service consisted of a 'snack pack'. Like the ones SWA has except theirs had Oreos! Yummy. My only complaint was that it was the coldest flight I have ever been on- ever! (What were they paying that F/O to do anyway?) To make matters worse, they had a shortage of blankets too.
The crew was nice, -even perky- and the actually chatted up a few people. They were easy to take and not a bad product at all. I'd fly them again. They live up to their name, that's for sure.

I wish I could agree with the comments above, but my experience with Spirit was not a good one......aircraft was dirty, we had an unexplained delay, and the cabin crew seemed a bit unprofessional. In general, people seem to chose Spirit due to their low fares.

"Service on Spirit" reminds me of some other great oxy-morons. Jumbo Shrimp. Government Intellligence. I have flown them twice and the experience was awful both times. I'm amazed they are still in business.
