| My son and I flew direct, round trip from Seattle to Houston for a grand total of $400, including one checked bag and drinks. That is at least a couple hundred dollars less than any other airline. Here's what we paid for: Round trip tickets Seattle-Houston $153 each x 2 = $306. (That's extremely cheap) One checked bag ($35 each way) = $70 Two waters, one Coke, one beer (a nice IPA) = $16 Two Cokes, one tea (On the way back we brought food and snacks with us, plus I took two empty disposable plastic water bottles, and filled them up after security, which saved me $6) = $8. They have larger seats, which appear to be the same in the 1st class sections of the domestic carriers that you can reserve for $50 more, but you need to reserve them as soon as the seat reservations open because I assume they go fact. Both the check in crew and cabin crew were great. Personable, friendly, positive, and helpful. I recommend this airline to others, unless you have children, in which case probably no because: If you're traveling with children and you want to guarantee a seats next to each other, you have to pay extra for that. You have to pay for carry on bags. All those drinks add up. With kids, of course you have checked bags, which also cost. I decided not to pay for the additional (which was maybe $20) to guarantee that my son and I sat together. He's 13, and would have been fine with not sitting with me, but in fact we still had seats together both ways. All the costs are on their website, so run the numbers and compare it with the other airlines to see which makes more sense. I would definitely fly Spirit again, and in fact plan to use them when I spend a weekend visiting a friend in Las Vegas later in the year. On that trip I'll get by with bringing just what fits in a shoulder pack (which is free).
