Handing Over the Torch…wait… Lightsaber

In case you haven’t noticed, and judging by the attendance you haven’t, I haven’t been writing much in the past two years.

No worries, nothing bad has happened! We’re still traveling (mostly) as much as ever, but our kids are older (12 and 8!) and since I’m homeschooling them I’ve needed to spend more time teaching them and have had less time to write.

The first time I ever wrote about Spirit Airlines my goal was to give people what I couldn’t find, a comprehensive explanation of how Spirit airlines works and what to expect when you fly them since ultra low-cost carriers are not as common in the U.S. as they are in other places.

I’ve had a lot of experiences on Spirit, drinking canned wine, weather delays, lost luggage, involuntary bumps, but unlike some other airline (I’m looking at you Ryanair) if the price is right, I still have no problem flying on them or recommending flying on them if someone is flying on a budget or need first-class sized seats for a coach-class price.


I have passed on to Jeanne all the knowledge I have acquired flying them over the years. Believe me, if I have any new information I will let her know so she can pass it on to you. And don’t forget, Jeanne used to fly on them a long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away!

Thank you, Jeanne, for letting me write for your blog and editing my posts! Thank you to Randy and everyone at BoardingArea for being so welcoming even though I wasn’t an “official” blogger with you. Thank you to those who read and followed my posts and I hope most of you got something out of them, even if it was to never fly on Spirit. 😉

Happy travels everyone! May your flights be on time, your luggage make it one piece, and the crying child belong to someone else.

About Tiff

Tiff's first big vacation was a Caribbean cruise when she was six. She first started getting interested in deals when her husband showed her the tricks to getting bought off your flights back in the late 90s. She started flying nonrev when they got married; the first unusual nonrev she did was in '05 when her family flew through San Juan to get to Dallas from Philly. They have two boys, ages 10 and 6, who she usually drags along on their travels and hopes they will grow up to love traveling as much as she does.
