Having done some googling, and read the article on the WIPO site that was posted earlier, it would seem that the Australian Spirit Airlines has been around as a company for over a decade, but has never flown.

They have a domain of, but it comes up with a "time-out" error so is probably not active.

Edited to add:

On that note, does anybody have any info on that airline? or is that a non-issue? They do mention Southwest which made me think that maybe Southwest was involved.</font>
Doubt it. My guess is they put a link to Southwest on their site so that search engines will find it when they look for Southwest. One of many tricks people will use to improve their search engine ratings.
