School Bus with Wings (Spirit Airlines nickname)

Spirit Airlines is an American ultra-low-cost carrier. Spirit has sometimes been called the “School Bus of the Sky” or “School Bus with Wings.” Both school buses and Spirit airplanes are usually yellow.

“At least it’s not #spiritair.  That’s like a school bus with wings made of popsicle sticks” was posted on Twitter by Chris Mammarelli on May 28, 2011. “I hope this trip is the first and last time I fly spirit airlines. It’s like riding a shitty school bus with wings” was posted on Twitter by pk on July 7, 2011. “Fuck Spirit Airlines. This is a fucking school bus with wings” was posted on Twitter by Garçon D’or on July 16, 2013. “Spirit’s big, yellow birds taking flight: To some, they may resemble a huge school bus with wings” was posted on Twitter by Press of AC on October 9, 2014.

“does that make Spirit the school bus of the sky” was posted on Twitter by Robert O’Neill on December 30, 2012. “Always tell myself ill never take spirit again. Here I am with a delayed flight again on The Schoolbus Of The Skies” was posted on Twitter by Keaton Kustler on July 2, 2013. “Spirit Airlines… The Handicap school bus of the sky.  #spiritairlines” was posted on Twitter by James Frey on October 12, 2014. “I have made it to Vegas on the school bus of the sky! Thanks @SpiritAirlines” was posted on Twitter by AJ Ford on October 17, 2014.

I’d call @SpiritAirlines “the remedial school bus of the sky” but I can’t think of a district that charges kids just for choosing a seat.

“A school bus with wings”
That is how Spirit Air was described to me. I need to get to Cancun in late April 2017 and was wondering if anyone has used this airline? About a 2 hour flight from Houston and a bit over $200 and you’re allowed “one small personal item.” Does my $3000 suit count?

The irony that @SpiritAirlines planes are yellow because their flights feel like you’re on a school bus with wings

Spirit’s cheap, about as cheap as air travel should be, but it is kind of literally a schoolbus with wings, and you know what, fine
