If you read my tweets you saw that yesterday I flew a discount airline for the first time. I spent $20K on travel in 2019 and although I wouldn’t trade the experiences for the world, I did have to cut it back this year. Last year I flew business class pretty much every time if the seats were better than what I could get in coach. There were times I could get bulkhead seats and those have plenty of legroom. They aren’t any worse than the business class on the older Boeings. But on the long flights of 5 hours or more I bucked up. And it added up.
So I decided to try and see how bad the discount airlines would be. Allegiant flies between Punta Gorda and Springfield Illinois or Indianapolis and has direct flights for under $100. Yup under $100 for a round trip ticket. I was able to get a round trip with a carry on for $120. And it was direct. I had to give it a try. Honestly at that price I can take ANY plane ride for 2 hrs. So here’s my review.
It’s fucking packed at the gate. The smaller airports pretty much live on Allegiant or American Eagle and Allegiant is by far the busiest. Heaven forbid you need to go to the ticket counter. Don’t. Do it all from home and get your boarding pass on your phone. Avoid the ticket counter at all costs and yes, they actually charge you to print out a boarding pass. But you never have to see them and I didn’t. I heeded the warnings. Once on the plane you’ll notice a few things. The plane has new seats. New because they took all the old out and added three more rows than normal so its tight. Even the exit rows are tighter. You’re getting out but not if you’re fat. You die in the fire in the name of profits.
The other thing I noticed is no food tray. They have a little flap that folds down. Too small to hold much and definitely not a laptop. They don’t serve food so no need to waste weight on a food tray. I also noticed nobody leaned back in their chair. It’s just too tight. If you lean back the person behind you can whisper in your ear. Finally the flight attendants. The newest of the new, youngest of the young. Its definitely the bottom rung of the flight attendant ladder. They were nice and did a good job, but I feel like it was stepping stone job for everyone working. I’d like to make fun of it but when you know exactly what you’re getting and you prepare for it then there’s no problems. Especially when its small airport to small airport and you avoid all the delays of the big airports.
The main reason I took the flight was not the cost but it was direct. Only a two hour flight to Florida which great. I watched a few shows and I was there. So short I really never felt cramped or uncomfortable and didn’t need any food or water. I knew I wasn’t getting any so I brought my own. Really not a big deal. All and all I can honestly say its how I’m going to go to Florida now. So good I am going to go there a few times a month during the winters now because of it. The price is amazing and parking at the airport is free as well. There just aren’t many quick getaways that cost under $200 for four days (I have a house and a car to use) where you can get 60 degrees warmer. So there you have it. I can’t believe I’m saying it but I highly recommend Allegiant for short direct flights to smaller airports. A good value if you plan for no frills.
As for domains. I didn’t sell any. Although I received five $50 offers which would have bought me 2.5 flights so maybe I should have taken them
