I'm not a member, but they have great pricing if you are. My daughter flys back and forth from Chicago to Ohare on Spirit and it works great for her.

You don't get anything on the flight (no food or drink service, no pillows or blanket and very small seats on MD-80 aircrafts), I think you can pay (VERY COSTLY) for soda or water.

The seats are very small and there is positively no leg room. You have to pay extra to pick your seat and you pay for every bag after your 1 carry on. If you only have carry on and you don't care where you sit or who you sit by, it works.

I am taking it to Fort Lauderdale to visit her in a few weeks and my son is going down for Spring Break -- both on spirit air. It's no frills, that's for sure, but it's cheap!

You pay $39.95 per year to get discounted seats on flights. NOT ALL FLIGHTS ARE $9!!!! And the $9 seats are LIMITED!!!

Most of the time you will just SAVE $9 on the seat....not GET IT for that! There are restrictions to dates of travel for the lower cost seats (and they range from $9, $16, and up.) The $9 are almost non-existant.

I re-wrote the post above, read it carefully.

I just joined to get our airfare to Disney cheap. Paid 39.95 to join and was able to get airfare for 5 people to Orlando for about $800. The person who is the member has to be traveling and booking all the tickets for everyone in the group to get the special pricing. So especially if you're traveling with a group - might be worth it.

Sounds like every other airline these days!

That's $160 per person (not bad!), I do NOT belong to the club and bought my round trip ticket to Fort Lauderdale from Chicago for $173 (taxes and fees included).

I recently became a member. My DH and I have a direct flight, non stop, from Detroit to Myrtle Beach round trip for a total of $117.80. Our seat tickets are less than our taxes/fees. I did not pay extra to pick my seat and we are both carrying on one small bag. It is a less than 2 hour flight so if it is a little small we can deal with it.
