Oh, Spirit Airlines! What would a travel blog be without you?? The double entendres, the imagery, the low fares that few if anyone can actually purchase… But this latest sale, as mentioned in the Consumerist earlier today, is a raising the bar, even for you: The MILF Sale.

Oh sure, the “MILF” sale portends to be the “Many Islands, Low Fares” sale, but we know better, Spirit. You’re talking about the lustful thoughts for a friend’s mom. And you know what: We have the evidence to prove it.

Have a look at these screenshots. You have to look quickly as the Flash passes, but thanks to a fast finger on the print-screen button, we see the seductive silhouette-shaped island north of Cuba…

My Caribbean geography may be a bit rusty, but something tells me that’s not any island I’ve seen. Better look quickly, as it changes to this more generic image:

Keepin’ it classy, Spirit!

Spirit has named sales before, after hurricanes, after Jeb Bush, and now, after the randy thoughts of teenage boys across America.

So: Whaddaya think? Are Spirit’s fare sale antics the marketing equivalent of a crisp snap of a towel in the postgame locker room? Or are these sales crossing a line into the obnoxious and offensive? Or, are they just plain stupid? Vote!

    Hah… see, that’s good advertising. I don’t really know anything about the airline, nor would it make me take them, but anytime you amuse me, you’re winning a share of my attention with which to use more, uh, rational influences to earn my dollars.

    I think it is a scam! They basically charge the same and charge for baggage. I made the mistake of joining w/o realizing and the $29.95 is non-refundable! It makes the industry one notch lower. What a shlock house! I would not want to travel with them any longer. Do they trade for services? Are their maintenance people cheaper? If they do that with tickets, I imagine that is the way they conduct their business! I have no respect for them!
