So, the big announcement out of the Louisville airport today...? Spirit Airlines is going to start flying from Louisville (SDF) to four destinations starting May 27, 2021.
Starting May 27, 2021, Spirit will offer the following daily flights from Louisville: Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Orlando and Los Angeles. The Los Angeles service will be the only nonstop fight from Louisville to LAX at this time.
Spirit has a reputation of being a nickel and dime operation. As long as you know what you are getting, you may be OK with Spirit.
This could be very good news for cruisers (once we are able to cruise again). The Fort Lauderdale service and the Orlando route are big players in the cruise industry.
Our word of advice about flying with Spirit, be careful when pricing out your ticket. Do you want an assigned seat - you will need to pay for it. Do you want to check a bag - you will need to pay for it. Do you want to take on a decent sized carry on - you will need to pay for it. Would you like a soda on that flight? Yep, you guessed it - you will need to pay for it.
If you don't "pay for it" with your luggage before showing up to the Spirit counter in Louisville, that's OK. Spirit has you covered! They are going to let you pay MORE for it when you check in. Be a smart shopper and be sure you are comparing ALL the costs when you are looking at any of the Spirit destinations from Louisville.
One the positive side, we are very excited to see what Spirit coming to the marketplace will do to overall ticket prices to these destinations. Competition is good for all!
Safe travels everyone!
Recently, saw a post where a young lady was asking her friend group which all inclusive resort they visited on their honeymoon. An honest question as I am sure she had overwhelmed herself with all of the resort options available.
Well, her friends came through in spades with answers. And, the answers were all over the board! Some resorts were true all inclusive experiences, some of them were resorts that add on a food package and call themselves an all inclusive, some of them were family friendly, some were adults only, some of them do a decent job with special concerns such as a food allergy and some of them do not. A few were close to the airport and a few were quite a ways from the airport.
How in the world would she know which one to choose from the options offered? She’s spending a good sum of money for a special honeymoon experience and she deserves to have the experience that is best for her and her partner. It’s fine to gather the info and get a feel for the resorts that your friends mention. It certainly will give her a list of resorts to explore online as she thinks about what she wants.
