    I have flown on spirit many times to florida. Allways had a great and easy flight. Looking foward to flying them again to jamaica. 313.00 r/t is a great deal I think. It might be worth it to drive from allentown to AC and stay over night at a casino and catch your flight in the AM. We leave AC by 7am and arrive in montego bay at noon. Allentown is not to far from AC is it?

      It's about 2 hours or so. Allentown is almost (or maybe it is considered) to the mountains. We'll see. I told my FI that I wanted to upgrade wherever possible, to make the trips easy. Even driving to Philly is about an hour, so then we'd have to drive to AC from Philly. I am even looking into perhaps flying out of Allentown airport, but those flights are so limited...

        Cheap Airline Tickets, Discount Hotels and Airfare - SideStep and Airline tickets, Discount Airfare, Helping you find Cheap Flights At FareCompare also check all regular airlines (not charter or special flights). I am also a user of www.bestfares.com which can be a HUGE savings.

          I use those websites for searching for flights, but always book from the airline directly. It's usually $8-$10 cheaper & you can get better customer service if something goes wrong.

            Good point!

            I always use Orbitz to look up flights...then usually end up going over to American Airlines and booking the same flight for a few bucks cheaper.

            I've been keeping my eye on Jamaica flights from Raleigh, NC...and we finally booked our flights less than a month before we leave!! Yikes! Thankfully the prices have remained pretty steady over the last couple of months.

              I've started using farecast.com to see if prices are high or low. I want to find a website that tells you what prices were last year, so you can see what the trends are.

                Interesting site, Morgan. I just opened it up to check out when I have a few minutes sometime today. Unfortunately for my work, I have been spending TOO Much time on here daily! I am going to make an effort to only come on at lunch and in the morning. Yeah, we'll see how well that works.

                    Exactly! Always book straight from the airline once you find the best fare.

                      I use Airline tickets, Discount Airfare, Helping you find Cheap Flights At FareCompare. It also shows the yearly trends and you can sign up to be notified when fares to Jamaica (or any destination of your choice) drop.
