Spirit(NK) Service To NAS, Fare Sale!

Thu Nov 03, 2005 8:11 am

I don't know if this has been mentioned at alll (I did a search and found nothing), but NK is adding some new destinations to the carribbean(sp?). Jamaica. Kingston, and Montego Bay. For a limited time only and through their website they are selling $9 fares each way. Most are sold out. I was able to purchase tickets from LGA-NAS (included in the sale). But I have a few questions on this small growing airline.

I read all I could on their website, and searched the entire A.net photo database, to learn what I could.

1.When will they be retiring all their MD-80s?/How can I find out the delivery schedule for their Airbii?

2.How long have they been flying to NAS?

3.What is their customs situation like in LGA? In NAS?

And also a couple of questions not related to NK...
1. How long will it take to go through customs once I land in NAS? Will it be an extremly long amount of time? Or will it be say 20-25 min? Any help would be appreciated.

.

I'm pretty sure all will be retired by the end of 2006

They started service in January of this year.

NK doesn't control customs in NAS

Depends on the time of day. I see the LGA flight arrives at 12:50pm. Expect a lengthy line as usually six or seven flights arrive in that period. Immigration..have the forms filled out correctly and it will go very smooth. Customs will let you walk through as long as you haven't brought anything into the country. All in all...about 30 minutes.
Looks like the fresh wind has gone stale

LaGuardia has no customs, it is a domestic airport. Flights pre-clear in Nassau and land as domestic.
