I see that someone already posted about this in the Delta forum:

My guess NK or VX is coming to MSP. I think it's a logical choice for Spirit. I think NK will start nonstop from MSP-FLL/DFW/ATL/LAS/MCO or MYR.

The speculation at the end of the video here is that it could be JetBlue or Spirit. I was thinking of VX myself, but I am not sure how much sense this would make (wouldn't they fly to bigger markets first, like Chicago, in the MidWest?).

Per http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/trave...elsewhere.html, since this is a story about a particular city/airport, I will move to the appropriate geographic forum with a 30-day re-direct left here for those who wish to view and discuss.

I would really welcome an airline like VX at MSP, but it is a lot more likely that it will be Spirit. Although, with dtw as a hub for spirit and delta, I think that spirit will not last long. Also, with sun country offering low fares to leisure destinations I don't think it would work for spirit.
