Spirit Unveils Fare Sale With 5-cent One-way Tckt

Sat Jan 06, 2007 12:46 am

"It's not free, but it's the next best thing…" That's how Travel Weekly (free registration) describes Spirit Airlines' latest over-the-top fare sale, in which the low-cost carrier is offering flights for 5 cents (not including taxes and fees). "Spirit spokeswoman Rebecca Rivera said the 5-cent fares are available for more than 10% of the seats on the flights on which they are offered. Spirit also is selling a bunch of tickets for the off-peak days of Tuesdays and Wednesdays at five cents per mile," Travel Weekly writes. Customers have until 11:59 p.m. ET tonight to book, though the sale fares vary widely by destination and available dates...

Its $0.05 PER MILE.....EXCLUDING fuel

1,000 mi = $50 e/w + fuel, so really no different than the $79 e/w fares we already see, just a different spin on it!
Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

Actually, it IS $0.05 each way for those city pairs listed by Viaggiare.

The other sale fares listed on that page are $0.05 per mile.
