We just went to New York overnight for a wedding, and we flew Spirit because it was cheaper. We've never done this before, we've always flown JetBlue. I've come to the conclusion that it's worth spending a few bucks more to fly JetBlue, an airline with obvious class (and leg room).
Here's an example: Spirit has all these ways to get your money. They charge cheap fares, but nickel and dime you for everything else. Snacks, for example - not that we would be eating them. But to charge your passengers for them? No class. Having all these crazy baggage limitations and charging passengers for going over them? No class. Automatically adding in "traveler's insurance" and forcing us to join your $9 fare club? NO CLASS. Besides the fact that they overbooked their 6:40 am flight and bumped us up to a flight 4 hours later. Hello, we woke up at 4:15 in the morning to make that flight.
There's more to say about the amazing wedding and whirlwind trip, but I'm too tired and frustrated right now. I just had to rant about the airline I never want to fly ever again.
Say it with me: Four hours. La Guardia.
