Now Jet Blue is trying to buy them and create the fifth largest airline.

Basically, JetBlue will digest Spirit, which controls a lot of valuable airport gates. Planes will get nicer seats, Sprit's Florida headquarters will close, service to Florida is likely to drop.

without looking at their balance sheets how do you really know... my guess is they will aquire spirit, nothing will change, however jetblue will use spirit cash and spirit debt and direct it towards jetblue enterpirse growth. Likely close the spirit FL hq but unlikely to close service to FL... prices will increase quietly and slowly...

They will continue to screw surfers over board bags, and I will fly American to Latin America as long as they keep their free board bag policy.

"... prices will increase quietly and slowly."....Now that's the Spirit!

I remember long ago the first time we were booking tickets and I was like "That is a good price!" and kept asking and my wife, "Make sure this or that is added.." She would tell me "OK that is extra". Then when I saw the price of the "regular" amenities I was like, "WHOA! not such a deal any more...Ok got it...we are taking a backpack and my knees will be in someones spine..."
