    If any other business was run like airlines they would be sued out of existence. Unfortunately they have us by the balls. I hate air travel. It used to be fun. A pleasurable experience.

    Passengers flying to Chicago have to deboard and move to a new plane. The passengers flying to Dallas or Fort Lauderdale remain on the plane.

    This makes no sense to me. Why is one city no good but the other two are ok? Maintenance light came on.

    I am just about ready to see if I can switch to 6pm flight, grab a comped hotel and go to sleep.

    Never happened in the 15 plus times I have flown them. They're not to blame for the issues at O'Hare and weather

    It could happen on any airline. For me, it happens on American Airlines 75% of the time. My family learned the hard way not to fly American for any reason.

    Again, welcome to Spirit airlines. Not being rude but they are notorious for this.

    Looking for 4 more volunteers. Will give money, hotel, and midnight flight. I was sold until they said midnight. No. I am not going to leave, spend 2 hours at hotel, then come back at midnight?

    Can you ask them for a flight tomorrow instead of the midnight flight?

    Ugh. I hope you're getting it worked out. This stuff makes traveling not do fun anymore.

    I think that means you're supposed to join the ranks of those who are saturating Clark County air with the smell of weed.

    Light 'em up!

    This. Midnight is likely soonest. I got United to bump me to next day when it happened to me. They were happier too.

    Right now, back to sitting in the terminal. They're emptying the fuel from the plane for some reason. They also took Chicago off the board. They aren't saying much.

    I'm on the online chat to see if I can switch to the 540p flight tomorrow.

    Ugh. What a pain! Staying another night would be cool, but I get the need or want to get home too. DAMN ADULTING RESPONSIBILITIES!
