Volleyball tournaments in Hollywood ( FLIGHT 1 )

Here’s another treat for you guys, me and my family decided that we would come to support my little cousins Volleyball 🏐 tournament taking place in Los Angeles, California 🌴📸 tomorrow morning and I’m both excited and a bit nervous. First off I’d love to revisit LA 🌴📸 especially for the famous In N Out 🍔 next to Runway 24R and also since I didn’t get a chance to visit proud bird which is much close to RWY 25L but it also a good spot and I honestly like California climate so that’s the good and for the bad or the fun I guess is that I will be flying the magic school bus.

Yeah

I’m flying SPIRIT AIRLINES across the country from their base in Fort Lauderdale 🏝️🛥️ out to LAX on their A320 clocking in at almost 6 hours, this is one of the airlines longest flights can I survive? Let’s find out!

Flight Info

Origin: Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Intl 🇺🇸 ( KFLL )
Destination: Los Angeles Intl 🇺🇸 ( KLAX )
Flight Time: 5:45
Airbus A320-200 ( Spirit Airlines 2014 )

After a relatively smooth TSA check and some Burger King 🍔👑 here is the Spirit AirBUS taking me out to Hollywood tonight parked at gate G12 . Say what you want but Spirits yellow livery is one of my favorite in the sky right now or at least here in the US 🇺🇸 before boarding we went to a small ship to buy snacks since Spirit is a ULCC so nothing will be free onboard but our group was called so let’s board this AirBUS.


Now I didn’t really want to cheat on Spirit by booking one of their big front seats or even exit row seats but I didn’t want to fly cramped on the back so I settled for this seat just past the wing and this view is pretty good! 👍 we did have a brief 10 minute delay on pushback but I’m sure we’d make up time in the air so it didn’t really matter so I sat back, relaxed and made our way to FLLs RWY 28L for take off!


We were number 1 for departure tonight so we took off in an INSTANT from FLL. I will also start posting take off and landing footage to my YouTube channel which is linked on my profile sorry for the plug, let’s just move on. 😅


Last view over Fort Lauderdale 🏝️🛥️ and the many towns and neighborhoods surrounding it and even a good view down below at I-75, I-595 and the Sawgrass Expressway at their interchange in Sunrise but now we officially leave Florida 🏝️🐊🍊 behind with California 🌴🐻🏄 ahead of us!


Due to our weight, FL340 would be the highest we’d reach on tonight’s cross country adventure and soon enough, the crew came around with their service and like I said before NOTHING is free even a water bottle will set you back $4 so make sure to bring your own before hand. I didn’t buy anything since I brought my own snacks and already ate on the ground so I wasn’t hungry anyways but this crew was friendly and engaging with a lot of us so they earn 4 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Now unlike Frontier and Allegiant, Spirit DOES offer Wi-Fi and it’s not too expensive either in fact it’s cheaper than American Airlines Wi-Fi 😂 I still didn’t buy it since I wanted to rest this flight so that’s what I tried to do!


I managed to get a decent 3 and a half hours of sleep before being woken up by choppy air above El Paso, Texas. Now this is the point when everybody is sick of Spirit, the seats are UNCOMFORTABLE, arm rests are hard and the leg room is very poor but what did I expect to be honest 😂


Now I actually had a wild dream that a fighter jet was escorting us for some reason. I really do dream about the weirdest stuff.

But fr @mrAA thanks for the escort!


But soon enough the cabin lights were dimmed, the seatbelt sign turned on and we began our final into LA 🌴📸 while we fly over I-110 which goes directly into downtown.


Welcome to Los Angeles! 🌴📸 everyone after a really exhausting almost 6 hour flight. The best way to describe Spirit is you get what you pay for. Currently to fly this route it would be $118 for one person round trip compared to $301 it would cost to book a similar flight on AA but out of Miami 🏝️😎 instead just don’t let that cheap price fool you. It can EASILY get expensive with all the tempting additional services so if you do fly Spirit just be warned that the airlines main goal is cheap fares if you want more, you need to book with another airline.


It’s a pretty peaceful night here at LAXs terminal 5 gate 56B it isn’t too busy and kind of reminds me of a dead airport. I didn’t check a bag myself but my family did containing the Volleyball 🏐 equipment needed for the tournament we got our rental car and made our way down to Torrance to our hotel and hit the hay. Stay tuned for tomorrow as I hit up In N Out and Proud Bird for some post tournament plane spotting and as always between now and the next time, see you in the sky! 😉👋
