Flights Review

Feb 28, 2020

Don’t recognize military discount except for active military. No mention of this on Spirit’s website so waited until got to airport to check luggage. Ticket attendant said they had gotten an email saying they could no longer accept retired military but was not on website. Received discount in August when I flew.
