Default Question about Spirit Airlines

Just wondering if anyone is a member of the 9$ fare club and if it is worth it. We have flown with Spirit before and got some awesome rates on redlight specials.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Barry

Barry I wish. Since Spirit is a new carrier in Boston, I have seen that tempting $9.00 fare..From Boston, we have slim pickins....I know no one in North Carolina:( NOW, if only it was to Florida, I could be knocking on some Cruisemates doors!

Well, tell ya what people. I joined last night so I will be the guinea pig!
There were no instant rates available, but there are supposed to be some offered at least every 6 weeks.
I will post more as I learn. If I don't see any rates offered by the time my trial membership is up, I will simply cancel and only be out $9.

So far they have had some terrific rates available, but non for the particular dates that I am after yet. I will keep keep trying though.

I just got excellent rate from Detroit to Fort Lauderdale in April!

$62.75 per person round trip with tax and fees!

Now we have just about everything in place for our cruise, I still have to set up transfer and hotel stays, but there is plenty of time for that.

p.s. those rates weren't from the $9 fare club, they are available to everyone, I would definitely recommend that anyone who likes to shop around for the best deals like I do to bookmark www.spiritair.com for a search reference. Sometimes their rates will show up on Travelocity or similar search site, but to get the really low rates you have to book with them directly.

Thanks for the insight and testing it out for us, Barry. Glad to hear you got such a good rate. I know my Sister inlaw uses it down here in Florida, and she said she gets great rates and offers from Spirit all the time.
