Spirit Airlines is by far the cheapest option on this route for this time, but also has major fees for using their airline, including $35 for carrying a bag on-board, or $30 for checking it in — assuming you do it online. Additionally, any points earned on Spirit are only good on Spirit airlines, limiting the number of destinations possible. If you’re not checking a bag for a week in Cabo, this flight may be good for you — otherwise, Alaska and US Airways are perhaps better options.
