MIRAMAR, Fla., April 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spirit Airlines (Nasdaq:SAVE) is celebrating the 99.99 percent! That's right, over 99.99 percent of our customers did not file a complaint with the Department of Transportation in 2013.

To the 0.01 percent - that's OK, we know we aren't the airline for everyone (though we'd love for you to save by flying with us again!).  We are celebrating the 99.99 percent by running a $24 OFF* promotion. Book a flight for travel from September 3, 2014 through November 19, 2014 and you'll save $24 off* of your trip.

Spirit lets customers go more places, more often at the lowest fares possible. On Spirit, you start with our unbundled base fare and add on the options you want. No "free" bag, peanuts or drink.
