Fung Wah Bus of the Sky (Spirit Airlines nickname)

Spirit Airlines is an American ultra-low-cost carrier. Some Spirit critics have called it the “Fung Wah Bus of the Sky” or “Fung Wah Bus of the Skies.” Fung Wah Bus Transportation was one of the first Chinatown bus lines in the U.S., running bus service between Boston and New York City from 1996 to 2015. Fung Wah was famous for both its cheap prices and its safety violations.
