Aaarghh, of course us in the west don't get their deals. :evil:
Doesn't help Albertans, but for BCers, both Frontier and Spirit fly out of Seattle and you can legally smoke a joint before federal airport security. Manitobans and some in Saskatchewan can fly out of North Dakota with Allegiant.
Toronto is a very small part of Canada

Just flew Frontier out of Cleveland to Vegas and then drove to San Diego for $160US return including a checked bag. Couldn't beat the price for a family of 5 versus flying out of Pearson. Worth the 4hr drive to Cleveland for us for sure. No issues and would fly with them again.

Really bad reviews, worst in the United States, but they're cheap. Set your expectations appropriate, and remember the old adage, you pay for what you get.
This is true about the reviews. However, we flew on Spirit Air for $29 each way from Seattle to Las Vegas and it was totally fine. The staff were courteous and had a great sense of humour. The plane was modern and felt safe. No complaints whatsoever.

I think the people who complain are the ones who don't read all the rules and conditions before they fly. Anything outside the rules will cost you. Food costs money, a bag larger than the one permitted costs extra, getting them to print your boarding pass for you costs, etc.

It's not luxury treatment for $29 each way but we tried it and enjoyed spending our airfare budget somewhere else on our trip. We would definitely do it again.

jsut flew spirit niagara to mco.

it was all fine.
I didn't find the seats super uncomfortable, fine for a flight upto 4 hours.

I would rather do that than take rouge from pearson.

in and out much quicker.

I flew Spirit to Vegas last summer from Detroit. I opted for the exit row for the extra legroom. I would have opted for the Big Front Seat if available - the seats look tiny in a regular row.

Haven't flown Frontier in a while, but have heard good things from co-workers.

i tend to agree with you. if you read beforehand what you are going to get with Spirit then you should be ok. it's not like anything is a secret as it's all explained on their website or you can do a quick google search.

Spirit markets their $9 flights by saying "it's like paying for gas". Not bad if you can pull it off.
