Spirit extended their schedule through September this week.

EVP/COO expects NK to be at 2019 levels by mid 2021

"We are expecting around 16 aircraft deliveries in 2021 and "double digit deliveries" again in 2022. Our growth paused during 2020, but we're looking forward to by the middle of 2021, going back to the same size we were in 2019"

Wow! Will they be the first airline worldwide to accomplish this?

i think quite a few Chinese carriers already hit that mark. I think G4 will get back to 2019 level before NK does.

Didn’t Volaris exceed its 2019 levels of capacity in December 2020?

Looks like Spirit starting SMF-SNA on Mar 2, 2021. One daily as of now.

NK3801 SMF-SNA 08:00-09:25 A320 Daily
NK3800 SNA-SMF 18:05-19:30 A320 Daily

Wow! Very exciting. Did NK get an additional SNA slot or reallocate one from existing services (2x daily each OAK/LAS-SNA and 1x daily PHX-SNA) to support these flights?

    I don't get it either. It doesn't say why it is in more danger than the other guys or whatever?

    Reminds me of this very recent article called “Why is Spirit Airlines Struggling”. 90 percent about Spirit’s history and 10 about why Spirit is poised to be the first to recover. I’m not really sure what CNBCs latest run mis-titling articles about Spirit is all about.

    Same type of individuals who would jump the counter at McDonald's to attack the cashier for not supersizing their order. Classy.

    Heard on the video (maybe from the woman recording it): This is so -expletive-ing ghetto.

    If they have multiple shots - say, assembled from several phones and security cameras - this might be the stuff of a good employee training video, but only if they have the record of verbal and body language right from the start. It would be good to identify the triggers, be they from employee to passengers, or passengers to employees.

    Spirit is resuming pilot hiring in March. Initial classes planned at 24 a month.
    Seems aggressive while we're still mid pandemic, but they clearly have growth plans right out of the gate. They report earnings on Wednesday.

    Spirit’s new loyalty program is up and running. Looks like they’ve partnered with Brett Young to promote it with a virtual concert on Thursday.

    I saw their new special livery plane advertising it at AUS the other day.

    Spirit will be permanently splitting their operations control center into 2 locations - Fort Lauderdale and Orlando.

    https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/tr ... utType=amp

    Also, somewhat surprisingly, Spirit was named to Fortune’s “Most Admired Companies” list for 2021. They were one of three US airlines to make the list - the others being Delta and Southwest. Spirit has definitely come a long way in the past 5 years.

    Didn’t know that! Its so polarizing nowadays, some airlines is doom and gloom and others are hiring. Interesing times.

    Looks like Spirit will be starting SDF. They’re full of surprises, didn’t see this as their next city. LAX, LAS, MCO, and FLL will be the first cities from Louisville.

    SDF will be a great addition for NK. LAX-SDF at 1x daily seems pretty odd though. AA didn't have much luck on that route when they tried it pre-pandemic.

    Does anyone see NK going for the A321XLR in the near future? Could allow them to open up new opportunities from their FLL & LAS bases like deep South America & Hawaii as well as unlocking the ability to enter the transcon leisure market.

    Spirit is set to launch routes to BOS and CLE on April 14.

    I get the CLE, but two daily flights to BOS is a head It.

    A short, distance flight to PIT could work as there are no low cost options from the NYC area.

    DTW, IND, CMH other options as well.

    I’m not sure if people want to be on a Spirit jet for over 10 hours to Buenos Aires. Ecuador is about the limit, and that’s stretching it. Unless NK is willing to give people a truly long-haul product, even with BOB, I don’t see them being successful in South America. But people would likely put up with the product to Hawaii, though. The majors don’t offer anything much better, except for maybe Hawaiian.

    Spirit has flown FLL-LIM for quite some time and that's further than Ecuador.

    Interesting. They shouldn’t have made the big fuss about it if they weren’t going to go through with it.

    I wonder what Spirit's CSM is vs the Big 4. I still think this will be the battle in the next few years - ULCC's making serious inroads into other airline's markets. Less debt, modern airplanes and lower wages.

      I’m guessing you're talking about EWR to CLE and BOS. You didn’t really specify. These were started early in the pandemic and from what I understand the loads were good until the second pandemic wave kind of stifled everything.

      CVG already has a lot of ULCC coverage with Frontier and Allegiant doesn't it?

      Spirit is set to launch routes to BOS and CLE on April 14.

      I get the CLE, but two daily flights to BOS is a head It.

      A short, distance flight to PIT could work as there are no low cost options from the NYC area.

      DTW, IND, CMH other options as well.


      I’m guessing you're talking about EWR to CLE and BOS. You didn’t really specify. These were started early in the pandemic and from what I understand the loads were good until the second pandemic wave kind of stifled everything.


      Whoops! Yes, EWR

      I wonder what Spirit's CSM is vs the Big 4. I still think this will be the battle in the next few years - ULCC's making serious inroads into other airline's markets. Less debt, modern airplanes and lower wages.


      The CASM (ex fuel) from the last investor call was $0.06 with an eye to try to get that to its high $0.05+ average.

      And flying from secondary airports means lower taxi times and atc delays - additional fuel savings over the hub and spoke model. Think CLT and ORD for examples.

        I actually think DTW to IND, STL and BNA are no brainers if they can make DTW-MCI work.

        I believe they chose Orlando.


        Interesting. They shouldn’t have made the big fuss about it if they weren’t going to go through with it.


        The fuss was all Pre-COVID and things changed. Cheaper to go to MCO I'm sure.

        Companies do this all the time to get the best deal they can. Playing off one city against the other.

        I heard it was AirTran's old operations center. Lots of the maintenance and dispatch people are Floridians, and likely wouldn't want to move to BNA.
