Hot Take: I Love Spirit Airlines And I'm Not Ashamed To Admit It

Who needs a stale bag of pretzels when you can book a flight for $25, honestly?

I've flown all of the major airlines. This includes low-cost carriers like EasyJet, IndiGo, and Scoot, to the more luxurious (in my opinion) airlines like KLM and Lufthansa — but Spirit Airlines will forever be one of my favorites.

First of all, cheaper flights = more inclusive travel.

I know it's fun to hate on stuff, but let's please shift from hating on Spirit Airlines to hating on literally anything else!

Spirit not even a bad airline. Twitter told yall it was and now it’s a personality trait.
