Spirit Airlines has launched a sale with tickets prices as low as $29 each way — just $9 for members of its low fare club — on limited routes and very limited dates in February and March.
If you’re willing to fly on the specified dates you can get a few good bargains. I priced through a round trip between Boston and Fort Myers at $89, all taxes and fees included. (That prices out to $70 with club membership, which is free costs $39.95 a year.)
Remember that Spirit is an ultra no-frills airline with extra fees for almost everything and limited customer service. It also specializes in vulgar ad campaigns, although this one seems surprisingly benign. It’s the UFO sale: Ultra-low Fare Opportunities.
The only other destination on sale from Boston is Atlantic City. Fort Myers is the only destination out of LaGuardia. If you live outside the Northeast, you will find other city pairs on sale.
Spirit does not fly from Bradley.
