If you are traveling the East Coast, here's a great air deal

Hello Insiders-

 

This may not be for everyone, but I was able to book a one-way non-stop flight from Boston, MA to Atlantic City, NJ for next week at the whopping price of $38.99 including taxes and fees on Spirit Airlines.  If you need to check luggage or have a carry on (a non-personal item like a briefcase or such) that will cost you.  I guess this might be "The Gambler's Special" but what the heck.  Use it in your travel planning if you can!  Safe travels to all.

    That's a great deal even on Spirit.  But you have to promise to go to White House Sub Shop | Atlantic City Subs, South Jersey Cheesesteaks and send me an Italian Sub!!   After there would you mind heading up the AC Expressway to Exit 28 in Hammonton and getting me some Hot Italian Sausage, Feta and Spinach Sausage and some Parmigiano Reggiano from Bagliani's Market Hammonton New Jersey?  Please

      Italian subs are "the bomb," aren't they?  My favorite is Voltaco's in Ocean City; when we leave town I always buy 6 to 8 extras to take home.  I'll get you one too -- my treat!  I haven't made it to Bagliani's yet but this may be the trip!  I think I need to get to Hammonton...  Thanks for the tip, iahflyer!

        You betchya Sledgirl.  They are great as I'd stop in there on the way back to PHL and they'd vacuum pack the sausage and I'd put it in my carry-on, when I got home some five or six hours later it was still nice and cool as well as the blocks of cheese.  Enjoy yourself, I miss the Juhzeeey food and flavor, but that's about all I miss of it!!!

    Spirit Customers should definitely be aware of the extra fees and stict baggage size requirements. Carry on bag fees range $26 to $100. One checked bag ranges $21 to $100. Picking your own seat will range $1-$50 for coach. Here is a link to their "optional services" page.

      I started replying, vaboywnder, but somehow my post disappeard so if this is a duplicate I apologize!

      Yes, the I saw the bag fees and luckily don't need to deal with that this time.  Their "extras" pricing does not make a bargain fare such a deal.  Thanks for posting the link -- saavy travelers need to know these things!

        I hope you have a good time!  Atlantic City is a interesting and fun place to visit.  I've never flown on Spirit airlines but have read many horror stories.  It sounds like you are aware of the "extras" that they charge travelers.  I know currently they are the only airline that serves the ACY airport but I read recently that United will begin flights there as well.

         

        Let us know how your trip goes!

          Well it's my husband who is actually flying down to meet us; and I'm quite sure he'll let me know just how bad it is.    I'll be driving down ahead of time (with his luggage) and will have a few days to hang out (hit a golf course, get Johnson's Caramel Popcorn, etc.).  We go here every year at this time to visit his grandmothers; both should have passed long ago and it's amazing they are still with us.  So we make a point to visit as it's important for my kid to know his great-grandmothers while he can.  The AC airport is very cool as the NJ Air National Guard is based there and we get to see some pretty neat stuff hanging around there.  Our home base for the week is Ocean City (a dry town so I'll be sure to pack the car with medicinals) but we do go over to AC to walk the boardwalk and have a bite to eat.   There is an incredible view of AC at night from where we stay.  And Johnson's Popcorn is my only true vice in life -- it is my absolutely favorite caramel corn so I bring their re-usable tubs and fill them several times over the course of the week.  No calorie counting on this vacation!

            Make sure you eat at the Crab Trap in Somers Point.  We'd have about 10 folks for work staying at the RI in Somers Point, we'd all walk down there to avoid getting into jail for driving and we were what they called regulars even from as far away as Houston and Phoenix.   Not sure if Crabby Jack's is open as yet down on the water by the OC bridge, but if so it's a great spot to have a "prescribed med" as well as some good fattening appetizers.

          I just found this on the NH Business Review and this may explain the low airfares:

          Atlantic City casino profits plunged 35 percent in 2013  Not even a boost from
          Internet gambling money and the comparison with an extremely slow period after
          Superstorm Sandy could prevent Atlantic City's casinos from seeing a big decline
          in their earnings in 2013. – NJ.COM

          UA Express started April 1st from IAH with an E45X once a day.  Not sure if they are doing ORD-ACY or not, but I'd still opt for PHL over ACY and make the drive as opposed to flying a lawn dart for 4+00 back to IAH in the winter with those huge headwinds.
