Spirit Airlines Spoofs JetBlue Slide-Jumper With "Don't Be Blue" Coupon

We’ll give it to Spirit Airlines — they know how to get attention with their e-mail coupons. First their was the MILF Sale, and then the MUFF Diving promo, and of course this summer’s Check Out the Oil On Our Beaches deal. Now the yucksters have turned their focus on last Monday’s JetBlue flight attendant flip-out.

Consumerist reader Paul forwarded us the offer he received yesterday from Spirit that features a blonde man leaping out a plane’s emergency exit while hoisting two beers in the air. The headline: “Don’t be blue, slide down to low fares with $35 coupon.”

Here’s a larger view so you can appreciate the Photoshopped motion blurs in all their glory.
