Spirit Airlines, an ultra-low-fare airline based in Florida, announced it will begin daily nonstop flights between Orlando and Houston on Valentine's Day this year. Hair Balls did a quick check of the cost for a round-trip ticket to Orlando in February and found a fare of $118.79. By comparison, the same ticket on Southwest using its Wanna Get Away fare was $166.
If you are feeling like taking the clan to Disney World, don't bother with the Wagon Queen Family Truckster and that awful smell coming from the back seat. You're safer taking a flight, especially so you don't get suckered into hauling dear old Aunt Edna with you.
Spirit also offers nonstop service to Chicago, Dallas and Las Vegas from Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport.
So, hop on a flight there, Rusty, and don't leave the dog tied to the bumper.
