Fly from Chicago to New York for $39 round-trip, nonstop, on Spirit Airlines. This is a new route for Spirit, with intro fares on sale for just $1 each way, and the remainder of the cost being $37 worth of "taxes and fees." If you are so inclined, you could shave off Spirit's $16 "Passenger Usage Fee" by schlepping all the way over to the airport and purchasing your fare at the ticket counter. But a trip to the airport...parking...time out of your day...it all sounds just as (if not more) annoying than a $16 Passenger Usage Fee. Your call.
