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. – Loren Pechtel Jul 23 '15 at 20:08

    I don't have a printer where I am. – Kenny LJ Jul 23 '15 at 20:54

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.

    customersupport.spirit.com/hc/en-us/articles/… confirms this. – Nate Eldredge Jul 23 '15 at 21:52
  • 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. – Kenny LJ Jul 24 '15 at 20:26
  • 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. – nukeguy Apr 12 '16 at 14:25
  • As of June 2017, this is also correct at MSP and PHL. – Micah Lindström Jul 29 '17 at 20:26
