And once you add in everything they nickel and dime you for, they usually cost more than Delta and Southwest (I need to check a bag. Don't understand how anyone can travel across the country for several days and just take a backpack).



I agree on the nickle and diming. Sometimes spirit will offer $50 one ways to Vegas from BWI but they're horrible hours and are closer to $100 after fees.

I live in DC and travel to Vegas and Seattle a dozen times a year combined. Trips are for 2-3 days or a week long. Weekend trips can fit in a dufflebag, longer trips require a roller. I haven't checked a bag in years.

I'm with you, it has probably been 10 years since I checked a bag. I just spent 20 days working in Texas and got by with just a carry on bag.

Even for a three day trip I need to check a bag. So the nickel and dime airlines (Spirit, Allegiant) will never be a deal for me.

Just searched Buf to LAS leaving 9/9 and returning 9/30. several $149-$170 fares each direction on those dates. I didn't need a code to see those fares.

Out of those 7 days how many bags were for the woman?
But I jest, I could not imagine fitting a 7 day trip to Vegas in a carry on.

You can use the low fare calendar here:
https://www.southwest.com/flight/shortcut/low-fare-search.html

If you are flexible on day of the week travel (lowest price usually Mon/Tue/Wed) you can fly round-trip, nonstop, BUF-LAS for $300 total. The legacy carriers (Delta,United,American) usually match these sales but will require a connection each way from BUF.

One sample trip:
Aug 26 - Sep 16 $300

Did you really use everything in your bags? I can't imagine travelling with that much stuff. My wife and I always travel with carry on. We even did 2 weeks kicking around the Greek islands with a day pack each.
