I purchased a ticket for 335 USD with Taca.com from Guatemala to Chicago, while maybe 100 dollars cheaper, Spiritair.com was too risky.
I will fly from Guatemala to Chicago, Illinois on October 11, 2011. Taca.com has a direct flight for 335 USD, and there is nothing but confusion served up by SpiritAir.com.
I went to the SpiritAir.com baggage page, on the first page it says I can bring a backpack, but onerously does not say Computer. I then clicked on the page that lead to fees: Click Here
Wow, they say that confusion is the devils only friend, and for that describes SpiritAir.com's baggage fee page.
I think I would translate SpiritAir.com marketing program as,
"We believe you are stupid, you continue to buy tickets, therefore we will continue until we are forced to stop."
Obvious Good Deal: I make decision by searching for the obvious, when a product or service is obviously good, then I say yes.
At the Guatemala City international airport, Spirit Air charged me $75 per checked bag for two bags. They obviously ripped me off. And then the head stewardess got mad at me and treated me badly the whole flight. And no free muffin or bagel or anything on a 4 hour international flight. The entire experience is the worst I have ever had. And I have been flying commercial since September of 1969.
ps: TACCA was great
