The Stupid Spirit Airlines M.I.L.F. Sale Is Back

We’re probably just encouraging them, but we felt some sort of strange obligation to let you know that Spirit Airlines has brought back the (controversial?) M.I.L.F. sale.

The first time around
the promotion featured an illustration of islands cleverly arranged in the shape of a buxom female figure, and a spokesperson who, aw shucks, had no idea (none! really! honest!) what M.I.L.F. stood for. Spirit even went so far as to claim that there is no way they could have known what M.I.L.F. meant because the executive who approved the promotion is “British.”

Gee whiz.

(Thanks, Rachael!)

    LOL. I can’t bring myself to hate it. It’s too funny!

  2. chemmy says:

    lol Yes, I had to email this to you as soon as I saw it in my inbox… I’d heard of their stupid alternate use of the acronym but find it just another cheap tacky marketing ploy.

    It’s all good. I don’t fly Spirit anyway.

  3. oakie says:

    that’s just clever marketing. too bad their marketing department doesnt have the cojones to just own up to how clever they are.

    What’s wrong with MILFs or the term? Practically every other industry uses sexual references to advertise, why can’t the airline industry?

  5. ThunderRoad says:

    If the vacation includes a buffet of MILFs, I’m in for two!

  6. B says:

    Do they offer discounted rates to MILF island?

  7. JackAshley says:

    I was hoping for an actual MILF sale…I`ve been running low lately!

    @B:

    “Welcome aboard Spirit flight 6969 to MILF Island, with continuing service to Erection Cove”.

    1) I’m British
    2) I’m sure I know what a MILF is

  10. CyberSkull says:

    I’m sure if you ran a survey in any English speaking country they would know what a M.I.L.F. is.

  11. azntg says:

    @philipbarrett2003:
    We know. The original argument didn’t pass the BS meter the first time around.

  12. Beerad says:

    Gee, people are too sensitive. I wonder why they axed my proposed Island Fun Unexplored Caribbean Keys Every Day You’re On Unparalleled Remote Majestic Oceanic Merriment promotion.

  13. vladthepaler says:

    Er. Colour me British, but what is a milf?

    I think this is kind of cute! I also think that abriviations have many meanings. For example when I type SOD into google, looking for Septo-Optic Dysplasia, I can find: Screen of Death
    Secretary of Defense
    Septo-optic dysplasia, a congenital malformation syndrome of the optic nerve
    Soap Opera Digest
    the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary
    Soft On Demand, a Japanese porn company
    Soul of the Duelist, a pack in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game
    Storage on Demand
    Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, a disorder of the muscle around the bile duct orifice into the duodenum
    Stormtroopers of Death, a thrash/crossover metal music band
    Standing Order for Data
    Sleep of Death, describes an error where smartphones do not reactivate
    Statement of Direction (business)
    Sudden Oak Death, a plant disease
    Superoxide dismutase, a group of enzymes
    and that’s just Wikipedia, there is bound to be more out there.

    @vladthepaler: Mom I’d like to fuck

  16. Project Thanatos says:

    I love me some MILF.

  17. The Great Aussie Evil says:

    Too old for me, thanks.

  18. StevieD says:

    For all of the non-p_rn lovers out there MILF stands for Mother-in-law you can guess the rest.

    Obviously Sprint’s management doesn’t view a lot of online p_rn.

  19. Tonguetied says:

    @thesuperpet:

    SOD also stands for Separation Of Duties!

  20. nikkomorocco says:

    dude, sign me up again this time around. a beautiful older woman trumps a young one any day of the week.

  21. AnnC says:

    @vladthepaler: Just type it into google and click “I’m feeling lucky”

  22. fuzzymuffins says:

    wait, did they bring it back because of the MILF ISLAND reality show???

  23. rdldr1 says:

    Reminds me of;
    Sony camera case named TWA/T
    Woolworth children’s furniture LOLITA line.
    Or Seattle’s SLUT trolley line.

  24. elislider says:

    i couldnt find it on their site, but i didnt look very hard. the screenie shows current date range though. hilarious

  25. m4ximusprim3 says:

    @AnnC: You’ll get lucky all right.

  26. Omir The Storyteller says:

    To be fair SLUT isn’t the *official* abbreviation for the South Lake Union Trolley, but try telling anyone around here that. Some of these jokes just write themselves.

  27. LUV2CattleCall says:

    I liked their Mullet sale better: Business in the front, party in the back.

  28. olegna says:

    I thought it stood for the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, the Filipino Islamist separatist group. . . who live on many islands.

  29. fairywench says:

    The stupidest thing about the term MILF is, well, think about it. In order for a woman to be a mother, someone had to think she was f*ckable to begin with. Therefore, overall, more mothers are f*ckable than non-mothers.

  30. fairywench says:

    And that should be the official Mother’s Day slogan: “Mothers: We’re More F*ckable!”

  31. TheRedDuke says:

    Apologies if I’m repeating an observation–I’m a little late to the party. Where was I? Well, what happens at the Spirit Sale stays at the Spirit Sale, so I won’t kiss and tell.

    ~~The Spirit Airlines “Need Some Strange?” Sale offers one-way flights starting at $4.09.~~

    I found the MILF sale too restrictive for my tastes.
