Spirit Airlines Cancels Some June 12, 13 Flights Ahead of Strike
Due to a Possible Pilots' Strike at Spirit Airlines the Low Fare Carrier Has Canceled Some Flights Over the Weekend
Spirit Airlines could be facing a possible strike from their pilots and have preempted the situation by canceling some flights over Saturday and Sunday. As BusinessWeek pointed out, if a passenger tries to book a seat over the next two days on most flights they will be told there are no seats available.
There are no seats available for the selected date. Please select another date in the Calendar or go back to the homepage and perform a new search.
The pilots have until 12:01am tomorrow to reach a deal or they will walk out.
A few days ago, Spirit Airlines told the Associated Press that even if their pilots do strike, they will work with other airlines to make sure their passengers who are booked on flights can still make it to their destination.
Whom they plan to work with they have not said and they may still have to cancel more flights if the strike goes ahead.
Spirit Airlines' pilots are in what is known as a 30-day 'cooling off period', which they must undergo before they can announce strike action. They can walk out at the end of these 30 days if there is no deal.
Spirit is a small, privately held carrier based in Miramar, Fla. It operates about 150 flights per day, many of them from the eastern U.S. to Latin America.
