Spirit On Strike
« on: June 13, 2010, 06:50:31 PM »
"Spirit Airlines canceled all its flights nationwide this weekend (June 12-13) after pilots went on strike early Saturday morning."

Alot of Shluchim, including my bro-in-law lost their flights for Gimmel Tamuz. If anyone chances on a cheap flight from FLL or MIA to NYC please post.

Does anyone know if they are putting people on other flights? I've heard conflicting reports.

they are only refunding the ticket plus another 100 dollar credit good for up to one year. Didnt sound like they were putting people on other flights.

This quote from Detroit Free Press:
Because Spirit has no reciprocal agreements with other airlines, it is offering only credits or refunds to passengers on canceled flights, not accommodations on competitors.

And those refunds don't go very far for those that had the "$9 fare"  ;)

I've never flown these guys and don't care if I never do.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I once flew spirit and asked the stewardess "can I get a cup of ice, or are you going to charge me for it". She replied "when we start charging for the bathroom, I'll charge you for ice". How generous...
