The short story is that I am stupid. I took a rash decision and now I have confirmed tickets for me and my parents to Dallas from LaGuardia on Spirit Airlines and have also paid for a few checked and carry on baggage.
I have never traveled Spirit before and booked the tickets because the fare seemed affordable. The other options I was looking at had stopovers and Spirit was the only airlines that was servicing DFW non stop. Since I was travelling with my parents who are a little elderly, the non stop service caught my attention and I booked the ticket. I was not aware of so many extra charges for carry on and check baggage but paid for it as I was already locked in with Spirit.
I see that there have been many horror stories with Spirit and I want to take as much precautions as possible. Anyone traveled this route? Any pointers to what to expect and what not to expect? Any kind of advice is welcome!
