Classless or not, you’ve gotta give Spirit some credit for their quick thinking when it comes to fare sales, from Spirit’s “F-ing Golden” fare sale, where they were “guilty of selling seats though don’t expect to serve the time,” to their “Weiner” fare sale, with fares “too hard to resist.”
Well, after American announced they were filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection today, Spirit announced they would be starting service from Dallas to New York, Boston, Orlando, and Atlanta. Of course they celebrated their announcement by saying they were embarking on a new chapter, with an $11 fare sale.
Clever? Classless? A combination of both? What say you? While I’d never fly them, they never cease to entertain me.
