Just got back from Las Vegas, flying out of Minneapolis. I know there are a lot of people out there that hate this airline with a passion, but I thought I would post my experience in the "spirit" of fair play. This is my third time flying with Spirit and have not encountered any real problems with them; neither has my son who has flown with them a couple of times. This last trip to Vegas, I was able to fly round trip for just $74.18; that was their base fare and I do not belong to their $9 fare club. Now ladies and gentlemen, that is one hell of a cheap fare. Granted I have done my homework and have avoided the added fees. I purchased an American Tourister tote that qualifies as a 'personal' item. It has wheels and a retractable handle. My son and I have used this tote and never had a problem with the Spirit people. It fits under the seat in front of you. This past trip I put two pairs of slacks, a long sleeve shirt, 4 short sleeve shirts, a pair of sneakers, 4 pairs of socks, pajamas, dress belt, 2 changes of underwear, one t-shirt, my shaving kit, a wallet containing all of my players cards(I have over 20 of them) and my sunglasses in their case. I still had room for more stuff if I needed. I printed out my boarding pass the night before my flight and received an aisle seat when I did the online check in. The flight out of MSP was 30 minutes late, which is not unusual for a late night flight for any other airline. There were no other delays and the flight went without a hitch. The flight was half full so I was able to grab a row completely by myself. The return flight was on time and only 2/3 full so I sat in an aisle seat. The flight attendants were courteous both ways. I have to agree with others about the lack of leg room on the Spirit airplanes, but with such a low fare I can put up with a little discomfort. Maybe I have been just lucky, but when I can fly to Vegas for under a 100 bucks...I'm going to take a good long look at it. Getting from the airport to the hotel has several options. Most of the time I rent a car; not this trip. Since I was staying downtown, I didn't want to go through the hassle and expense of using a taxi. The last several times I have had to really force my will on the cabbie in order from getting overcharged. I am sick and tired of dealing with these con artists. The regular shuttles take forever...seems like I am one of the last ones to be dropped off. I used the super shuttle that charged me just $11 for a one way fare to my downtown hotel. The van left just 5 minutes after I boarded, made two stops before mine and took 30 minutes to get to my hotel. The cost was $2 more than what Bell Trans charges on their regular shuttle. I anticipated that my flight would arrive too late to take the WAX bus to downtown and I would have missed the bus by 10 minutes(the last one of the day). I was able to prepay for my shuttle fare on-line and received an e-mail from them when I landed giving me instructions on where to meet the shuttle van and confirm that I had landed. I went directly from the plane to the shuttle. It would have cost me at least $30 for a taxi and I avoided having to choke the shit out of him to keep from ripping me off. I was very pleased with my super shuttle experience and will be using them again when I don't rent a car. I bought a 3 day bus pass for $20 and used the Deuce and SDX to get me to the Strip and back. I used the WAX to get to the airport at the end of my trip. I think I spent almost as much on tips and dining than I spent on airfare and Vegas transportation. Your mileage with Spirit may vary from my experiences, but so far I have no real beefs with them.
