A Nickel to Haiti

Spirit Airlines is launching nonstop service from Fort Lauderdale to Port-Au-Prince, Haiti beginning in March.   Special fares start at a nickel each way, and they’re actually available (with tax, it comes to about $85 round trip).   Now, Americans are warned not to go to Haiti, and for good reason (well, many good reasons, not least of which is the 60 people who were kidnapped in Port-Au-Prince last year).  But for Haitians in south Florida, this is one helluva deal.  In case you were wondering, Spirit’s aircraft will spend a grand total of 40 minutes in Haiti from when they land to when they get the hell outta there.
