I gave up on Spirit years ago. I had no problem with AC airport, of course, or with their flight crews, or their planes. But Spirit's policies don't work for me. All the fees, luggage, seating, etc. And the inflexible fees for changing flights (but similar to most other airlines I agree).

Southwest out of PHL is a much better option for me with the free luggage, frequent flights per day (a few being nonstops). Stuff comes up in my life where I need to cancel trips or move a day up or back..... Easy peasy with Southwest.....

I just resurrected this thread as we are flying into Ft Myers, and our 6 a.m. flight has been changed to 5:47 p.m. landing at 8:33 p.m. That would basically be ok, because then ds won't miss a full day of school, but I am driving when we get there and can't see that well at night, let alone when I don't know where I am! (Yes, I would be driving in the dark in the a.m. but I am comfortable enough driving to the airport so I will be ok).
I have never had a flight change when flying Spirit, and we have used them quite a few times.
I agree, I love AC airport: it's an easy drive, small airport, easy to navigate.
I will try calling them tonight, although I'm thinking this may not be too successful.
Sigh. We shall see what happens next.
