Editor’s Note: We know COVID-19 is continuing to impact your travel plans. Should you travel now, be sure to familiarize yourself with the CDC’s latest guidance on domestic and international travel as well as local requirements, protocols, and restrictions for both your destination upon your arrival and your home city upon your return. Be safe out there.
This week may mark the official end of summer, but save your whining. Spirit Airlines is celebrating the start of fall with cheap fares across the US.

On Friday, the budget-friendly carrier is kicking off its seasonal sale with low fares-some of which start at just $46-to over 90 destinations domestically. You can snag flights beginning at 10 am ET on September 23 through 11:59 pm ET on September 24 for travel between October 1 and November 19, 2022. 

Now, of course, there are stipulations. For one, you won’t be able to travel on Fridays or Sundays. 

Here are the cheapest domestic flights right now: 

  • Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale for $46 
  • Austin to Las Vegas for $46 
  • Baltimore to Miami for $46 
  • Dallas to Phoenix for $46 
  • Detroit to Myrtle Beach for $46 
  • Fort Lauderdale to Denver for $46 

While you’re still going to save on fares either way, don’t forget to read up on applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges. Spirit can be tricky with carry-on baggage too.Want more Thrillist? Follow us on InstagramTwitterPinterestYouTubeTikTok, and Snapchat.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
