Re: Spirit Announces SMF

It is too bad that Spirit doesnt want to expand more out of Indy, Cbus or Minneapolis. Me thinks that San Diego, Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland and Seattle routes would be home runs for Spirit. It would be a dream to see them add Sacramento to Minneap. https://www.theindychannel.com/news/local-news...

Spirit will park at the end of the A concourse. I am assuming A22 is the only gate open toward the end of that concourse.
