Last time we left off ,I flew to DFW to start a new chapter of my life in Texas.
This flight was taken during the holidays to visit my family in the New York area.
DFW-LGA (here) LGA-DFW (coming soon)
This was also my first flight on Spirit. I heard the reviews about them but decided to give them the benefit of the doubt. Flying into the NYC area is never cheap, especially during the holidays. Spirit was the cheapest option. Total Price was $698 for two people, including the $42 bag fee, the $32 seat assignment fee, and taxes. Steal!
We arrived at DFW and checked in. Apparently Spirit is a 40lb carrier, so we had to rearrange some stuff. Security was pretty quick and we were airside. I got to the gate and was ready to go!
N521NK would take us to New York today.
Spirit has not updated their entire fleet yet, but we got the nicer old livery with the nice seats. They were very comfortable.

We took off uneventfully.
Seat pitch was suprisingly ok! I'm 5' 7' so I didn't feel the "knee crunching" pitch that others feel.
Flight attendanst went around and asked if anyone wanted to purchase a drink or a snack. Spirit's BOB menu and seatback pockets. Yes, water is $3.
The famous bare fare Statement.
Gotta love those Airbus Winglets!
Tray table was clean.
After takeoff, i turned off airplane mode and was able to get a bar of cell service. I then opened Google Maps, and found my location! Moving Maps on A Budget…..
Cabin just before arrival. Flight attendants went around handing out applications for the Spirit Airlines Master Card with an additional 25 thousand miles.
