$9 Airfare Los Angeles to Vegas -- Going, Going, Gone?

Spirit AirlinesIn celebration of its new route flying from Los Angeles to Vegas, stunt-savvy Spirit Airlines is offering a $9 fare each way from La-La-land to Sin City. Taxes and fees quickly ratchet that price up to $39 round trip, but it's still less than what you'll lose to the slots -- or pay if you want to bring a carry-on bag.

That's right. Carry on. If you pack a bag that needs to go in the overhead, be prepared to pay a $30 fee if you pay in advance on-line, or $45 at the gate. Bags that fit under the seat are free.How much do you need to bring to Vegas anyway (besides your wallet)? And returning? Well, remember that what happens in Vegas ... stays in Vegas.

The super-duper fares are valid for travel between May 10 to June 15 (Graduation celebration? Early Father's Day?), but not available for May 24-25, 31 or June 1.

The airline that bills itself as the low-price leader and Ultra Low Cost Carrier was first in flight to charge for everything from snacks to more comfortable seats. With gas prices on the ground hitting new altitudes of their own, Spirit Air is making standing in line for a security screening look a lot more appealing.

At this rate, you could fly to Los Angeles from elsewhere, catch a flight to Vegas and probably still save money. If you can score a seat. Tick tock, get those fingers flying fast if you want to be dealt in on this offer.

Don't do it. I did it last year and it is a scam. I purchased 2 rt tickets to mexico. Thier cheap ticket was more than Delta by the time they add a charge for everything, down to seat selection and $35 for your carry on. In addition, they advised me that I would be contacted to see if I wanted to renew. Another lie. I saw it posted as a future payment by my bank and went to thier web site and followed the steps to cancel the day before it was to be renewed. There is no way to determine if it went through and no way to sent a note to customer svc. I chd it the next morning to confirm and then rentered it just make sure. Then the next day did the same. Now they say too bad we did not process it till the day it was due so no refund. Now we cancelled it in the early hours of the day it was due, took your money then cancelled your membership and no refunds. So i paid $59.95 for 4 hours of thier $9. fare club. This is a scam. You will be on hold forever and then try to deal with someone who barely speaks English. Run away, use another airline,
