bailout watch 243 spirit airlines to bail out passengers

“Spirit Airlines wants to bailout Detroit air passengers.” Geddit? The airline is offering a “Detroit Bailout” sale; travelers can fly from Detroit to domestic and international destinations at prices starting from $59 each way. This isn’t the first unusual promotion offered by Spirit. The airline once held a “Hunt for Hoffa” promotion in which visitors to its website could play an online game involving longtime missing and presumed dead labor leader Jimmy Hoffa. Customer complaints forced the cancellation of the Hoffa promotion.

    The LC Smith terminal is closed and scheduled to be demolished, as is the old Barry terminal. They where both replaced by the new North Terminal. The area doesn't have to work economically, for the airport to be a good hub. It is located pretty well geographically, and it with brand new facilities, is good for passengers.

    @jgholt: I'm in Pittsfield Township. We can fly together. :) Actually, UM is the only reason I'm here at all; not from Michigan, not planning to stay...

    If you can't have a sense of humour about the utter destruction of your local economy and end of all you hold dear, what can you have a sense of humour about?

    This "bail-out" phrase is pretty hot at the moment, err, I want to see if I can somehow slot it into my resume.
