Spirit Airlines pilots have gone on strike over wages and, with that, all of the airline’s flights have been canceled. Not good, considering yesterday they were saying that they would accommodate passengers on other airlines; today, no such thing.
If you were planning on flying on Spirit today (or any day as long as the strike continues), the airline has laid out their policies here: you can either get a credit for the amount of your ticket, plus they’ll throw in a $100 flight voucher; or you can get a full refund. I’m guessing most will chose the latter, considering the $100 will barely cover your carry-on bag fees.
Spirit’s management has historically either been true to their convictions or incredibly bull-headed, depending on how you want to look at it, so this could go on for a while.
