Spirit Gets DCA Slots

Tue Aug 10, 2004 2:21 am

Spirit was awarded 2 slot exemptions at DCA for MYR service. The slots had been used by Midwest for DSM-DCA service. They'll probably run it direct DCA-MYR-FLL to increase service to south Florida.

Interesting development. Spirit seems to be on the way up lately. I don't think they're content to be a second-rate, also-ran LCC anymore. It should be interesting to see where they go from here.

Spirit is trying to re-invent itself, with its new livery, Spirit Plus class and new aircraft......I think that they are styling themselves after JetBlue and Frontier: as trendy reasonably priced travel. Lets see if they can pull it off.....other airlines have put their past behind them, CO is a good example.
