There is a really excellent article on “which airline should you choose?” posted over at SmartMoney.com. It goes through four different aspects of air travel, and tells you what airlines do good, and what airlines do bad.
Seriously – can things get any worse for Spirit Airlines? They are getting a ton of bad press about their $45 fee for carryons, $5 surcharge for using their WEBSITE (which is a load of crap!), paying for a preassigned seat, etc. Spirit Airlines truly has made some sucktacular decisions. Maybe they’ll reconsider, if their traffic drops off. I mean paying for a discounted fare from Spirit, then paying for where to sit on the plane, the convenience of using their website, to bring on a carryon bag. Hell, you’ve paid your way out of your discount up to a regular fare!
