Spirit Airlines Quietly Downgrades Its Business Class

Spirit Airlines has quietly downgraded its business class product to something it's calling  "Big Front Seat."  Basically, you get a business class (ish) seat with no frills.  Considering how cheap it is (NYC to Florida round trip can be in the $400 range, or less), it's still a great deal.  But I thought you'd want to know.

It ain't just the front of the bus being downgraded. They'll be charging 5 bucks a bag to check your luggage and a buck a Coke.

Supposedly they want to be an "ultra low cost carrier."

Maybe we'd all be better just taking an actual bus. Here's hoping this experiment in "Ryanair crosses the Atlantic" fails.
