Spirit Airlines Hold "Threesome Sale"

Spirit Airlines, holding a “Threesome Sale”, is apparently desperate for attention and I guess we’ll just have to give it to them. In this sale, members of the $9 Club get fares from $3 each way, seat upgrades for $3, and $33 for 33 hours. This comes on the heels of their last titillatingly titled marketing push, the “M.I.L.F sale,” which simply meant “Many Islands Low Fares,” and in no way, shape, or form, referenced American Pie. Now, before you get all outraged, remember that this is called “targeted marketing.” If you’re buying tickets for $3, classiness is probably not the first thing on your mind. I can’t wait for their next sale. I hear their marketing teams is busy coming up with clever acrostics for “gangbang.”

    If you’re a member of a club called “the $9 Club”, you probably don’t mind advertising inviting you to join a threesome.

    Who does their advertising? I think I want to work there.

    Like this is new. During the sleezy era of airlines, you had nifty slogans like Southwests “Come fly me to…” said by stewardess in skimpy outfits and husky voices.

    Let me be the first to say that I am taking this advertising campaign very seriously.

    I still like their Mullet Sale: Business in the Front, Party in the Back.

    I remember how they tried to pretend they had no idea what a MILF was…especially since the CEOs mom is a definite MILF!

    I’ve never had a good flight or experience with Spirit, and I’ve flown them many times b/c the price difference was too much to resist. I now have learned my lesson, and pay more money to avoid Spirit.

    I love that a site called Consumerist says if you can get a $3 plane ticket, you have no class.

    Who wouldn’t want to fly Spirit airlines???

    I love the juxtaposition of the “We’re having a threesome” banner with the airplane going straight up.

    They’re definitely up on their Freudian imagery.
