Spirit.  Perhaps the most controversial airline in the Western Hemisphere.  I’d argue its reputation is only rivaled by RyanAir in Europe, but it’s not all bad, right?

They must be doing something right, because Spirit Airlines is continuing to expand.  Starting next month, the big yellow planes will be flying from Boston Logan and Newark Liberty airports to San Juan, Puerto Rico.  These nonstop flights will be operated daily from each airport in the Northeast, and arrive just in time for those winter getaways!

Fly the Caribbean Spirit!

Spirit is adding to their current Puerto Rico flights:

  • Philadelphia (PHL) to/from San Juan (SJU)
  • Baltimore (BWI) to/from San Juan (SJU)
  • Orlando (MCO) to/from San Juan (SJU)
  • Tampa (TPA) to/from San Juan (SJU)
  • Boston (BOS) to/from San Juan (SJU) starting 12/19/2019
  • Newark (EWR) to/from San Juan (SJU) starting 12/19/2019
  • Fort Lauderdale (FLL) to/from San Juan (SJU)
  • Fort Lauderdale (FLL) to/from Aguadilla (BQN)
  • Orlando (MCO) to/from Aguadilla (BQN)

Spirit will also be increasing their service between Philadelphia and San Juan.  Starting March 1, 2020, they’ll offer multiple daily itineraries for nonstop service.

Somebody must be buying all those Spirit flights, because they keep expanding service!  I’d be interested to see how much their demand has been impacted by the 737 MAX issues.  Shortly afterward, Spirit began pushing their “all Airbus fleet” as a major selling point.  Did they capture new fliers?  Are people happy paying less for less space and lower service?
