I have flown Spirit numerous times for vacation, and have had a lot of flights canceled and/or delayed with them.As someone who has worked for a major airline in pricing, the whole "tickets are cheaper on a certain day" thing just isn't true. You have two solid options:
1. Sign up for a credit card associated with an airline - most give a huge bonus award miles on signing and you earn miles every time you use it, so you will be able to get some free flights pretty quickly.
2. Use a discount carrier like Spirit - however, read EVERYTHING they send you because they will attempt to charge you in ridiculous ways for pretty much everything. Also, if one of their flights cancel, they won't rebook you on any other airlines so you will have to wait for another Spirit flight, which could be several days away.
Agreed. If the devil was in the aviation business, his company would be Spirit. Avoid at all costs.I have flown Spirit numerous times for vacation, and have had a lot of flights canceled and/or delayed with them.
I would strongly discourage using them for interviews. I'm paying a bit more, but a piece of mind that a Delta/United will get me there more reliably is one less thing to worry about.
