Re: Spirit Airlines fleet status: Repaint and cabin updates

Before the Covid 19 health issue, NK had planned to finish all painting with the yellow and were also targeting to fin...

In particular, if these crew members have been taking that particular pr...

Re: Disney launching their own airline?

As posted above, NK does have 10 International destinations operating from MCO. Their rapid domestic route structure is close to or exceeding their domestic traffic from FLL , which is the home office ... Once again I say interesting...to say the least...

In addition with NK's FLL International routes, this would compete directly with B6/FLL WN/FLL and AA/MIA ....This would be an asset ...
