I've even heard a few about Southwest.

I know Allegiant (which flies out of TOL) does not have interline agreements, but I thought Spirit did. That sucks, but it's good information to know. (Crossing Spirit off of my list.)

Edited to add: here's a recent article on the subject:

http://www.consumertraveler.com/today/whats-a-ticket-agreement-airline-jargon-101-and-why-you-should-care/

Note that not having interline agreements may be okay---*if* there are lots of flights on that airline serving your route. This is one reason I avoid Allegiant (they only fly 2x per week), but don't mind flying Southwest (they fly a half-dozen flights to MCO each day.)

I've used Allegiant before (I think it was in 2006) out of Toledo and thought they were pretty awesome. Right now for mid-March they fly 3 days a week and you can get tickets for $79 per person each way if you fly Tuesday or Thursday. It's $169 if you want to fly on a Sunday. http://www.allegiantair.com

Personally, the last time I went to Orlando (right after Christmas last year) I drove with 3 friends, and the road trip aspect was a blast. Driving though the night (from Ohio) was definitely the way to go since you pretty much have the road to yourself. We all really regretted the decision to drive back during the day since it took us 10 hours to go about 250 miles. Most of the drive ended up being at night anyway because of that.


Reading about people's vacation planning is kinda depressing. I've been badly itching for a "real vacation", but I think I need a new employer (or about 4 more years with my current one) before I'll have any real amount of vacation time. :(

Sadly, less vacation time (and downtime in general) eventually leads to more people getting burnt out.

On the other side of that coin, employers have workers, and the want to extract the most productivity from that asset.

Is it any less expensive flying in and out of Sanford? When we went (almost 6 years ago already-- yikes), we took a charter flight that went there instead of to Orlando. There's an extra drive and some tolls involved, but it may work out better overall cost-wise.

The Allegiant flights go through Sanford. Not sure if all flights are necessarily cheaper though there, but it'd be worth a check. I found avoiding the toll road to be easy enough.

I recently read that Allegiant now has a gate or two at MCO. I don't know which routes got moved, though.
