Head rest is uncomfortable. Makes you have to lean forward at neck.

We had a verrrry bad experience a few years back. Spirit lost our luggage on a trip to Atlantic City, sent it to Houston. so we were very hesitant. This trip was for a cruise out of New Orleans, and all went well, there and back so yes...satisfied and will try Spirit again in future. the curse is off.
