Since when did Spirit starting caring about complaints? IMO this is not the type of complaint they need to address, especially when they have a ton of them which actually have merit. But you're right, that is pretty much their attitude regarding complaints.
does an average to slightly above for dealing with that. It's their business model they don't apologize for.

All of the above. The complainer needs to be made as famous as their victim.
No argument there.

Rumor is going around that the person in question (a female) knows the F/A personally and was basically harassing her over an ex boyfriend who is now dating the current flight attendant.
I'm beginning to doubt this was actually a passenger on the flight that reported it. More like a case of Facebook stalking.
That would be petty as hell.

As an airline i would hire her on the spot and make a marketing campaign surrounding her and the event.

Waiting for NK to use this incident as fun marketing ploy in 3...2...1
She's already at the place best suited for that. Say what we will about NK
, but they know how to pack planes and get attention.

And secondly that sounds very far fetched. Any proper weblinks to this? I highly doubt that. Turbines are strong! They are meant to withstand harsh conditions!
Honestly, I do agree that this is a crapload of hot-air. But as far as putting on heels in those things...
The issue isn't so much that per se (we'll come back in a minute though...) It's the area fwd of that. This is the acoustical lining (although often referred to as a sound suppressor in a lot of the newer types). This lining can support weight of a person without a lot of fuss, but things like high heels are not that good an idea. Anecdotally, I'm reminded of the time we had to pull an aircraft off the line (an E-190 in that case) after a (relatively senior, no less) mechanic dropped a set of keys on it. The key chain had a kubaton (small, dense piece of metal used for self defense or fighting), and it did manage to punch out a hole the size of a quarter. From a less than two foot drop. I wouldn't like to think what 120lbs of FA
slipping on her high heel would do.
As for the turbine, that would only be a problem if someone dropped change or pocket crap and it managed to get behind the blades. Unlikely, no doubt, but with the less than totally forgiving way that airlines like to look at things these days, not something I'd want to deal with.

Go for it...milk this for all you can get. If they could somehow publicly shame the complainer as well, that'd be awesome too!
I'm reminded of that "Hate thousand miles" thing they did...
