I recently flew Spirit Airlines to ORD from IAH (and back). It was a day spotting trip with @Aaron_Murray.
I’ll start with the story.
So we flew the early flight out of IAH which departed around 6AM. The aircraft was coming from Las Vegas, and it was on time. The airplane got to the gate, and everything was fine. We boarded on time, and departed. The flight was what you can expect. You have to pay for food…But the air fare was only $109 dollars which is super cheap. We didn’t have any bags because it was a day trip. So the cart came by, a few people bought stuff, but we bought ours in the terminal. We arrived in ORD 30 minutes early, which was good for us. Got off the flight, and took the bus to the rent a car place. Overall, for the ticket price, it was an amazing flight.
This is based on the price of the ticket, which was $109 round trip
Yes, this is actually what I give this airline. It was well worth the price.
How to avoid high costs
- Book your bags in advance
- Check In Online
- Try sharing bags
- Don’t reserve seats
- Don’t get any add ons
- Make sure you bag is not overweight
In all honesty, you should not fly this airline if you have a family with you. It is perfect for day travel and not long term travel.
It is not as bad as you think. It is basically an airline where you get what you pay for. Do everything online, and you should be able to avoid high cost.
(Expect ORD spotting pics soon)
