Spirit Airlines goes with A-Rod PED theme to sell tickets

Maybe they'll have some other hot sports takes soon in their email marketing.

Spirit isn't exactly what we'd call a 'traditional' airline. They charge about $500 for bags, you can buy Cup 'O Noodles and Pringles on the flight, they buy all their planes from some guy in a back alley who can also get you Rolexes and Gucci bags, and if you can stuff your entire weekend's worth of stuff in a backpack or purse, you can fly to Cancun for like $10.

So why wouldn't they tackle the Alex Rodriguez PED story?

I can only imagine the hot sports takes they'll come up with next. Buy one get one fake seat free in honor of the Manti Te'o story. Deer antler spray available on all flights. NBA Trade Deadline fares where you can swap your seat for a seat in first class for the first protected ticket between 2015-17. The possibilities are endless. Thanks Spirit for your commitment to customer service and tact. You sure know how to run an airline.
