While it may be America’s most hated airline, Spirit manages to keep squeezing people into its 29″ pitch seats day after day with their dirt-cheap prices. Sure, people will always complain. But statistics show that price is still the primary factor people consider when booking airfare.
Spirit launches service to Columbus, Ohio
Starting in February, Spirit will begin offering service from Columbus, Ohio to several different destinations. The seven new routs are:
- Columbus – Ft. Lauderdale – 1 daily A319, effective February 15
- Columbus – Ft. Myers – 1 daily A319 (winter seasonal, until April 11, 2018), effective February 15
- Columbus – Las Vegas – 1 daily A319/A320
- Columbus – Myrtle Beach – 4 weekly A320 (summer seasonal), effective March 22
- Columbus – New Orleans – 3 weekly A320 (summer seasonal), effective March 22
- Columbus – Orlando – 1 daily A319/A320, effective February 15
- Columbus – Tampa – 1 daily A319 (winter seasonal, until April 11, 2018), effective February 15
This amounts to 42 weekly flights, which is quite the number of options for a new city launch.
The flights are already loaded and show up in Google Flights (SEE: 6 reasons Google Flights is the BEST flight search engine). As you can see, Spirit handily beats all the competition for a one-way ticket from Columbus to New Orleans in March.
Just remember the notorious “bare fare” only includes a personal item is addition to your tiny seat! Just remember the risk of booking an ultra-low-cost carrier, as you could get yourself into a multi-day nightmare if things go sideways.
