Hi Laurel,

While I have not flown Spirit I know others who have.  The experiences have
not all been good.  Their web site has not been accessible and they have
stated publicly that they do not need to make it so.

Some blind people have had difficulties with flight crews.  There are others
on this list who might be able to give you more personal details.

Subject: [nagdu] experience with Spirit Airlines

I'm thinking about flying Spirit Airlines on a return flight from a trip I
may be taking next week end. I'm a little unsure how they treat service
dogs, particularly guide dogs. I mean, I know the laws and such, but have
just never flown this airline and not heard much about wether guide dog
handlers have had good experiences with them. So, who all here has flown
Spirit Airlines? And what was your experience like? Was it good? Bad? Thanks
for the feedback!
