Re: NK adds yet more International: EWR-SDQ + more

Can Spirit even fly over water routes or will they be limited like Southwest to flying near shore? Do they have rafts, HF radios or CPDLC? If not look for all the flights to have to go down the coast, across the Bahamas and then East to the Dom Rep. Yes, all aircraft are equipped with HF and rafts....

NK has "locked" the 320NEO on the FLL-SEA-FLL run... could this mean a sort of "trial" for deep south or long haul flights in the future with the NEO??? Its because 10L in FLL will close for a good chunk of the summer. The NEO is the only tail that doesn't take a payload restric...

Re: Spirit Airlines Repaint Progress

Now that the neos are flying again, what routes/flights do they do? Are they deployed on specific routes or are they used interchangeably with the standard A320s? They are currently routed just like every other A320. The only NEO specific route will be the seasonal FLL-SEA starting in a couple weeks.
