Not going to make them a better carrier.................they are far from being an airline.

Referring to Spirit as an airline is like calling your local Fish and Chip shop a can hardly call Spirit an Airline.
They are just a carrier who now has NEOs to pack.

Good for them.

At others pay for services you don't use.
It is the future.
