$9 flights from LA to Las Vegas -- with a catch
Florida-based Spirit Airlines is once again offering one-way flights from Los Angeles to Las Vegas for the low, low price of $9.
But before you pack your bags, be warned that the deal offered by the ultra-low-cost air carrier includes lots of restrictions and several extra fees. Spirit last offered the same deal in March.
The restrictions include:
- You must book before 9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 23.
- You must join the Spirit Airline $9 Fare Club, with an annual fee of $59.99.
- The fare is based on a round-trip ticket.
- You must fly from Oct. 1 to Oct. 13, but not on Oct. 4 or Oct. 12.
In addition to the fare and the club membership fee, passengers will have to pay at least $25 in additional taxes and fees per one-way flight.
Spirit is also the only airline in the country to charge passengers a fee to bring a carry-on bag into the plane. Spirit club members pay $20 to $25 for a carry-on bag, depending on when you pay. The check bag fee for club members ranges from $18 to $23 for the first bag.
