spirit airlines to indy?


#1

With fares rising in indy will spirit airlines come to the rescue


#2

Contrary to popular belief, flying Spirit does not mean that you get the lowest cost for your trip. Sure your fare may be $29 but then you have to add in luggage fees, carry-on fees, ticketing fees, and dozens of other fees. Oh, and make sure you don’t have beans before you fly because there’s a fart fee also.

Perhaps, though unlikely, the OP is referring to a “Spirit Effect?” Is there a “Spirit Effect” on airfares or does it only affect level of service and the level the passenger is nickeled and dimed to death…


#4

If you experience the “spirit effect” you get charged the fart fee.


#5

Whether you like Spirit or not, they have been very successful.

I think it is very likely they will come to IND within the next year or two.

Please don’t encourage Spirit to fly here. We don’t need a company that believes a low fare is enough reason to treat their passengers like freight. Bring in a quality airline … JetBlue would be fine, as would Virgin America.

Good luck, I’d put the chances of JetBlue coming to IND at about 25% and Virgin America at about 2%


#8

ya jetblue would be great but i just don’t see it


#9

I was referring to the “spirit effect”

Very true. Southwest might notice this as well as Frontier and JetBlue. Four very efficient, yet low cost airlines. Indianapolis is surprisingly not a popular destination, so the prices might bump up a little. You never know. Happy flying! :slight_smile:
