HAHA these Spirit marketing people are hilarious. I remember the "MILF" sale and "You can go down on us to Florida" sale. Anyone have any pictures of those?

Oh NK, if you spent half as much time on figuring out how to retain customers as you do on tacky advertising maybe you wouldn't be totally owned by the competition in every market you serve. Yeah sure

I found the adverts with overt sexual references tacky indeed, whereas a take on Mr Woods accidents (note the plural) is funnier.

Well, for what their customer service representative said in an interview recently, they have started trying a little harder in this respect.

Does this mean an airline will hold a fare sale just because someone can't drive, got himself caught in a bad lie, and fell into a trap at his favorite hole? I can understand why his wife is teed off.

You mean the famous MILF sale? That was about as low as I have ever seen an airline go, rivaling only Ryanair for pushing the envelope on their ads.

The blatent Tiger Woods ad (what do they care? He'll never fly on Spirit...) and the Low Moon ad are truly just capitalizing on current hot events. I'm surprised they didn't think of a "Team Spirit" campaign. It's low-brow humor but I agree it is far better than their strong sexual innuendo ads of a few years ago. Consider it progress being made.

From another website I frequent, it's really ironic that an airline would use a CRASH to market itself.

Right, and what does Tiger Woods 'incident' have to do with having a $9 sale? I don't get it. I don't really get the "low moon" ad either. It doesn't make any sense. At least MILF made some sense, but that was in highly poor taste...wow.

Well...yeah, but what they want/need are people buying tickets, which we aren't doing and the stats don't seem to reflect that either.

The ad has generated a lot more curiosity than the $9 sale has... I'm not an airline snob, but you won't see me flying on Spirit any time soon.
