Spirit Airlines Mastercard Issued by FIA

I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with this card?  If so, what were your scores, etc. when approved.  Thanks a bunch!

Re: Spirit Airlines Mastercard Issued by FIA

I think this is a brand new card being offered by Spirit Airlines.  I don't anyone who has it yet. 

 

I, personally, would not want it because I'm not impressed with Spirit Airlines -- just my own picky taste.  Others may think they're wonderful but, the last time I flew that airline I was not impressed.

FIA is going to bring out some boos and hisses from a few forum members.

Re: Spirit Airlines Mastercard Issued by FIA

I work at O'Hare and from what I hear they are the worst airline, they may be a low cost carrier, but they charge a fee for everything.

Re: Spirit Airlines Mastercard Issued by FIA

Any airline that has to charge for carry-on luggage is worth avoiding, IMO.

 

Even Southwest would be an improvement...but I guess some people like Spirit since they fly to some places some of the majors don't.

Re: Spirit Airlines Mastercard Issued by FIA

I have flown with them quite often and have never had a problem.  I actually like them because the airport is pretty close to where I live and I don't have to drive two hours to fly.  Thanks for the input everyone.

[ Edited ]

Im also interested in scores for this card.

I like spirit when flying to Fla. I would rather fly out of Atlantic City then Philly.
