    Search the internet for reviews. You won't find many positive.

    In that previous thread, imo, Chadd gives the great advice.

    They ARE cheap. My brother is flying them to Florida from NJ for a long weekend, Friday to Monday, at the end of January...the middle of high season...for $100 round trip. If you know what you are in for with the added fees and what not, they can be the right option.

    If you are flying without baggage, they are cheap. They charge you for carry on bags as well as checked bags.

    With Spirit, there is a fee for everything, the ticket price is not the final cost. If you pay for your checked bag in advance, it's much cheaper than trying to sneak an oversized carryon bag onto the airplane. The carryon fee is extremely high. Most airlines are charging fees now, Spirit simply has more of them. They are very similar to the Ryanair model that has been very successful in Europe.

    I flew from DCA to FLL to AUA a number of years ago and they treated me very well. The "big front seat" or whatever they call it now is certainly worth considering, as their new seat plans can be a little tight for taller folks.

    We have never paid for carry on bags on American or Delta. Hope we never do. Delta has an Amex card that we have to get our miles with and it allows you one free checked bag in coach and 1 for anyone flying with you. No charge for carry-on at this time.
