Spirit Airlines is at it again with a crazy offer of $9 each-way fares from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. It's an introductory rate as the airline touts new daily nonstop service between the two cities. By the time you add on fees and tax, the airfare comes to $39 round-trip. Still, at a time when most airlines are responding to soaring oil price by raising rates and cutting flights, maybe a little craziness is a good thing.
The deal: The $9 each way applies to travel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays only between May 10 and June 15.
When: There's no deadline on the offer, but seats at this rate likely will go fast.
Tested: I checked the Spirit Airlines website and found a flight leaving Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) at 7 a.m. May 17 and returning 10 p.m. on May 19 for $39 including tax and fees. Note that on domestic flights, Spirit charges $30 for certain sizes of carry-on bags and $28 for the first checked bag. So plan accordingly if you're going to duck the luggage fees (and we suggest you do).
