I was chatting with my parents just then, and they told me about a $70 roundtrip deal from Houston to Vegas available this fall. Yes, that is $70 roundtrip! It is available on Spirit Airlines likely to celebrate announcing the new IAH-LAS route. So far I haven’t noticed any other airlines matching, but there are more cities available than just Houston at pretty good rates. I saw Denver for $88, LAX for $72, and I will continue to look for others (though I don’t consider any of those as nice as deal as from IAH). Just Another Points Traveler also points out in the comments that “there’s also NYC to FLL for $87.60 RT and NYC to Chicago for $80 RT, also on Spirit. Nice!
Houston to Vegas RT for $70 is one heck of a deal. I haven’t seen it that low in a very, very long time. Hurry up if you want in! I noticed that they just announced new service from Houston to Las Vegas yesterday, so likely this is related to that announcement. I don’t know for sure and don’t really care. I just know it is super cheap airfare!
Hat tip to Grandma and Grandpa points on this one!
Update: My parents booked a few nights in Vegas for October on this deal. They said when they booked their first choice of dates was no longer available, but the second choice was. It even came back at just $68 RT for IAH-LAS. They are very excited! Yes, Spirit charges fees for everything (including carry on bags), but at this low of a price you still come out ahead. I can guarantee you that my parents will be sharing one carry-on bag to save cash. They will even bring their own soda on-board. They also won’t care where they sit, so aren’t going to pay for seat assignments. Heck, for $68RT they would probably be happy flying in the lav.
