Spirit Airlines coming back to D/FW

Spirit Airlines is flying back to the Metroplex.

The low-cost carrier announced on Thursday that it will offer twice daily flights from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and to Las Vegas starting on May 5.

“We welcome the addition of new competition into the DFW market, and Spirit brings great service, competitive prices and tremendous value to our passengers," said D/FW airport chief executive Jeff Fegan.

This is not the first time Spirit has served D/FW. The carrier had service between D/FW and Fort Lauderdale in 2006 but pulled out after about a year.

Asleep at the switch again, ANDREA. This was available about 1 pm on Thursday...... where were you? You better develop some contacts in aviation or GET OUT OF THIS BUSINESS.

An American Airlines Boeing 757-200, registration N626AA performing flight AA-1640 from Miami,FL to Boston,MA (USA) with 154 passengers and 6 crew, had been cleared to climb to FL310 when the airplane suffered a rapid decompression. The crew donned their oxygen masks and initiated an emergency descent, the passenger oxygen masks were deployed. After reaching 10,000 feet the crew requested even lower and descended further to 8000 feet and returned to Miami for a safe landing on Miami's runway 08R about 40 minutes after departure.

A post flight inspection revealed a hole of about 1 foot by 2 feet (33 by 66cm) just above and aft of the L1 door and just above the "A" of the American Airlines Logo.

The NTSB reported, that the investigation is in its early stages and the altitude at which the decompression occurred has not yet been determined. The NTSB was told 154 passengers and 6 crew were on board.

Panderturd,

Why don't you apply at the S-T? I mean the TWU already pays you, well at least in your eyes; so, why not go and get another job. You're so good at everything you do, I'm sure you'll be welcomed at any paper/blog/job.

Well, until they find out that the only way you can keep a job is to hide in a worthless union. You don't work, but have plenty of time to complain and you'll never be in fear of losing your job as long as there's a contract.

Hooray!!! Panderturd now has another option when flying out of DFW. Not that he'd ever use anything other than a D2, but at least he can whine about someone else now.
