Spirit Airlines Will Fly From Seattle to Los Angeles

icon-comments Comments

Spirit Airlines is adding another route to its lineup with two daily flights between Seattle and Los Angeles starting on March 24, 2016. That will bring the carrier’s total number of cities served from Los Angeles up to fourteen.

Seattle is often called the Emerald City because the endlessly green landscape surrounding it. There are acres of forest, as well as waterways and mountains, so there’s no shortage of outdoor adventures to be had. It’s also the home of Microsoft, Amazon and Starbucks.

Los Angeles, on the other hand, makes for a sunny escape from long, rainy Seattle winters. While you’re there, you can check out Hollywood, TCL Chinese Theater and its Walk of Fame, the Getty Center and Mulholland Drive.

Spirit Airlines is relatively new to the Seattle-Tacoma Airport, and the discount airline has been working hard to expand its reach on the west coast. The expansion goes beyond the Los Angeles-Seattle route and includes more flights between Los Angles and Oakland/San Francisco, with the promise of more to come.

Using Miles On Cheap Flights

Spirit Airlines has been referred to as the cheapest airline in the world. No doubt that’s due in part to the carrier’s Bare Fares, which include nothing. That means you have to pay for everything from carry-on bags and checked luggage to water, snacks and seat assignments. It’s great if you can pay for additional services by Spirit air mastercard and get rewards. So you could theoretically get a really cheap ticket if you can go without bags and in-flight drinks.

What if you want to use Spirit Airlines Free Spirit miles to pay for your ticket? If you have a Free Spirit MasterCard, the minimum price for an award ticket is 5,000 miles, but if you don’t have the card, it will cost you at least 20,000 miles. Getting the card will save you lots of miles. But, either way, it’s less than you would pay with many other carriers. Domestic award flight typically cost a minimum of 25,000 miles with Delta, Alaska Airlines or United.
