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.



Out of the 7 bags, 4 were large checked bags, 1 was a camera bag, 1 was a large carry on with some extra clothes, and 1 was a small carry on.

1 of the large checked bags had nothing but shoes but 2 of them were my size 13s.

We didn't use everything but we did actually use a lot. We could have had a lot less and just wore a few shirts twice but she wanted to overpack since it was near 100 where we went.

Well, I don't know what Frontier charges for a carry on bags, but the gap between Frontier and Southwest on the Austin to Vegas flight is about $100 right now. I am hoping that the Frontier non-stops are successful. We need some competition on that route.



Be warned though, those seats are hell. Also checked bags take forever it seems. We flew Frontier out of STL last time because SWA gouges STL. Except for the sale this week of course.

It is frustrating that the $149 fare appear/disappear in a F**** hurry. Holy molly. Still waiting for the $149 to return...

I'm not sure they will return. There's limited supply, after all. Once the seats are sold, they're gone...

Something I've noticed about SWA too. When I look up a flight and get the price and don't book it then, the next day that rate will be gone.

I flew Continental to the west coast a few years ago because the SWA rate almost doubled from one day to the next. It was cheaper then to fly another airline.

I don't know if that's the norm. But since that time I'll always check dates different than what I actually want before booking.

And traveling alone I can fit a weeks worth of clothes into one carry on. Traveling with my wife, I don't even try.

They have dynamic pricing so if you buy a seat for x price, that may be the last seat at that price. As soon as you buy it the price will change.
