Spirit Airlines Grounded In Travel Upset
Those with flights booked on Spirit Airlines should keep very close tabs on your flights just now. The airline isn’t winning any favors with Disney Travelers as they cancelled nearly half of their flights in and out of Orlando International Airport today.
A piece in today’s Orlando Sentinel said that the closure is apparently due to a backlog of cancelled flights and travel disruptions that started happening over the weekend.
According to the Sentinel piece, the airline had a few breakdowns that had a knock-on effect during the weekend. By lunchtime, those at Orlando Airport saw dozens of flights being cancelled don Spirit routes.
This also a sight all too familiar with budget airlines this Summer, the Sentinel reminds us that Southwest, Frontier and American Airlines have all had major upheavals this Summer leaving visitors to the Sunshine State scurrying in terms of what to do next.
A spokesperson for Spirit told the Sentinel, “We’re working around the clock to get back on track in the wake of some travel disruptions over the weekend due to a series of weather and operational challenges.”
While Spirit continues to work to get there schedules back on track, pay very close attention to your flights in the week ahead.
