Spirit Airlines - Charging $280 For Unexpected Flight Change
RICHMOND HILL, NEW YORK -- Due to Hurricane Sandy approaching the East Coast, all flight tickets are supposed to have free flight changes. This happens, because the weather is out of our hands and there's no way to maneuver planes in this strong climate.
For some reason, they are STILL persistent about charging $280 for EACH flight ticket that needs to be changed. In this case for us, it will be $560 we will be paying in TOTAL, not including any other charges, for an event that is out of the airline's hands and OUR hands.
This claim by the airline is extremely ridiculous and needs to be voided.
