Regardless, the target markets for UAL and Spirit are so vastly different, it's like talking about how a dollar store will challenge Macys.
This may have been true in the past with great (OK good) FF programs, times have changed. Spirit has claimed that United's unit costs are 89% higher than its own. If true watch out on the domestic side.

As far as a dollar store VS Macys = UA is the new Sears (in the middle). Ad slogans "Solid as Sears" or "The Friendly Skies".

Best move I made several years ago was buying ALGT, Spirit and DL shares. AA is also working very well.

Spirit/Frontier could become a huge airline. Times change. I'm just saying you read it hear first. Mark your calendar. 4/28/2014.

I do not fly ALGT, Spirit or Frontier. I fly in FC on the best carriers in the World. I just have been lucky with these airlines (investing).
