[QUOTE=Dana;1134712]I checked SW, Spirit and my arch enemy Us Airways…SW was the highest. They are currently having a “sale” and they are still higher then I paid with Spirit and I am including the bag fees etc. Another huge consideration for me is parking and how much is costs. US Airs who has been ridiculous in pricing beat SW even with bags fees. I also have to tell you that I rather pay $20 to pick where I am going to sit. SW and their stupid Early bird $10 each way is doing the same thing, but wording it different.
Yeah, lowest price wins.[/QUOTE]
You know I swore that I would never ever fly USAir again—and didn’t for years. But…last summers trip from DC to Orlando they had airfare at less than anyother airline — by about $80 at the time. So we booked them. I was pleasantly surprised. This was an evening flight and it was not full so perhaps that helped.
I can’t remember what airline use to have sections. Was that Airtran? or was it JetBlue? Way back—you were assigned a boarding section and then just took a seat anywhere when you were called to board. At one point, my DD and I were assigned two different sections even when purchasing at the same time!! I got that changed when we checked in…but still—whichever airline it was I remember it being a scramble down the boarding ramp to get a seat you wanted together.
I would rather pay a little extra to have an assigned seat!!!
