Spirit Airlines Reviews
Spirit Airlines wasn’t an airline company from the start. It started as “Clipper Trucking Company” in 1964 and grew up to be an airline service in 1980 as Charter One founded by Ned Homfeld. On May 29, 1992, after the massive growth of Charter One, the name was changed to Spirit Airlines.
However, in 2000, the airline was fined with $67,000 for violating federal regulations on cabin, seat markings, and placard. It took them 3 years to resume operating. The newly-appointed President and CEO of Spirit Airlines since January 2016, Robert L. Fornaro, was also the Chairman or CEO of AirTran Holdings Inc.
Spirit Airline’s’ main bases are at Detroit Metropolitan Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The airline has a current fleet size of 87 all-Airbus aircraft. Recently, in February 2015, Spirit Airlines won the award for “Value Airline of the Year” by the 41st ATW Airlines Industry Achievement Awards which happened in Washington, DC.

The interface of the website: the layout of each section provides easy access for customers to manage their travel, check-in online, and check flight status.

In this Spirit Airlines reviews, despite the discrepancies and violations they have done in 2000 and even so in 2008, being the airline with the highest number of complaints per passenger and foul advertising campaigns within the past decade, the airline is really struggling to rise, but a good thing about them is they are not giving up the fight they started.
“LESS MONEY. MORE GO” is the slogan of Spirit Airlines. The airline remains the only American airline with 2 stars from the Skytrax airline rating. Nothing is over until you stop trying. They didn’t stop trying!
