    Default Airline fares

    I just got a quote from Spirit to go to the USA from Santo Domingo.
    I was amazed only 88 dollars return including all taxes.
    There must be an airline fare war going on.
    I need to go to the UK and via Miami is one option.
    Has anyone else had similar experiences?

    You did well.

    I have an Orlando to SDQ JetBlue ticket for February - $99 + taxes = $154 One Way

    I thought that was fine $99 each way.

    Watch Spirit - you may not be done paying yet.
    They charge for almost everything

    Bring your own oxygen, there is a surcharge on the plane.

    Default remember your carry on

    Because in addition to charging for checked luggage, they often charge you for the carry on as well...

    Ain't that the truth !!!

    And the hours they fly can be odd.

    My daughter experimented on using Spirit Air from Atlantic City, NJ to Santo Domingo. I believe she had to go through Fort Lauderdale or Orlando, one of those. Anyhow, the hassles of "add-ons" (luggage, overhead, seats, etc) and the crappy plane convinced her that for a few dollars more she will fly a real airline! She saved us all the headache, I'm sure.

    yeah definitely watch out for spirit airlines. you WILL pay more than the advertised price. haven't flown them in over a year now and don't intend to fly them again. both ends of the flight from here to ft lauderdale were very late and off schedule. at the time i last flew with them it was 25 or 30 dollars to check a bag PLUS x amount for 0 to 20 lbs, 20 to 40 lbs and UP for more weight. i believe i paid either 60 or 65 dollars to check 1 bag. they have at least 2 more rows than delta or jetblue in the same model plane, very cramped.
