Being privately held, Spirit doesn't have to release their financial information, and they don't. But based on the number of flights and type of aircraft they operate, however, we should be able to deduce their approximate revenues.
Anyone care to make an educated guess? Like in grade school arithmetic class, please show your work if you do make an estimate.

Well, if you check Spirit's website (fact sheet), they clearly state that they are the largest privately held airline. Of course, we all know you can't always believe everything you read on the net, but perhaps this one is correct?

I was looking up AWAC and found this, published Oct. 03'. So I really dunno who is right, Spirit, or AWAC
"Growing By a Factor of Four"
Appleton - When Geoffrey Crowley became president and chief executive officer of Air Wisconsin, the airline had about a dozen cities on its route map, including Appleton, Oshkosh, Madison and Milwaukee.
Fast forward 10 years: Air Wisconsin now serves 58 cities in 26 states and two Canadian provinces. It is the largest privately held airline in the United States, according to the Regional Airline Association, and its monthly revenue passenger miles have surpassed Midwest Airlines.
For the first nine months of 2003, Air Wisconsin carried 1.1 million more passengers compared with the same period a year earlier. The airline's fleet has increased from 17 planes only six years ago to 72 jets, with about 15 more on order for 2004." - The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Oct. 03'

It all depends on how you want it to be. AWAC is the largest in # of a/c, ASM's and I would guess revenue. (since we don't truely know with it in private hands) AWAC is also growing as ACA retreats from the UA contract too. However when you are talking about Independent carriers, I personally give NK the edge over Aloha
