APtravelnews-Jan. 12th, Bob and Barb “On The Road, Not the Air Again-Today I had a flight bought and paid for to attend the SHOT Show in Las Vegas. A couple of days ago, I picked up what turned out to be a flu-like virus. So I decided not to expose anyone else to this on an airplane or at the conference. I called Spirit Airlines and asked if I could change my flight to another time and date because of illness, I was routed over to India to work on this. I had a terrible time understanding “pigeon English” but in the end with supervisor in tow by this person (of many others) in charge of Spirits booking interests, was told I had NO options-period except to pay for a new flight, or take the flight no matter I’m sick, and no credit allowed to me. As I felt this is quite unfair, I just wanted my millions of lookers and readers to know about this. In other words; don’t expect anyone to assist you on an emergency basis at Spirit Airlines. They (at least the people detached from the American reality, except for the processing money they get) just could care less if you come aboard sick, blind, dumb or dead! I will never fly Spirit Airlines until they become human and not robotically on cruise-control with passengers reasonable requests!
