Can I print my Spirit boarding pass at some kiosk at the airport, without having to pay $10?
I just did the online check in for Spirit Airlines (USA) and was told to print the boarding pass, otherwise it'd cost $10 at the airport.
Is there a way for me to print it for free (i.e. without paying that $10) at the airport? Say at some automated kiosk? Briefly googling, this seems to be possible (1, 2), but I thought I'd get some expert confirmation on StackExchange.
(The airport is DTW (Detroit, MI), if that matters. Also, I don't have any bags to check in)
It's Spirit, what do you expect? They make their money on burying you in fees.
Last time I flew Spirit, I was able to print my boarding pass at a kiosk without paying an additional fee. I believe the $10 fee only applies if you get a counter agent to print it for you.
Yes, confirmed that this is correct, at least for DTW and ACY, and at least for July 2015, and at least if you have no bags to check in.
As of April 2016, I can also confirm that this is correct at DTW, LGA, and FLL. It would be hard to imagine a place where this isn't true.
