DETROIT – As the nation sees a summer air travel surge, thousands of Spirit Airlines passengers are dealing with canceled flights.
The airline canceled more than a third of its flights on Monday (Aug. 2). It blamed weather and operational issues. Tuesday (Aug. 3) was the third day in a row that Spirit canceled or delayed flights.
“We are experiencing operational challenges in some areas of our network,” Spirit Airlines said in a statement.
The problem has stranded passengers and led to lost bags.
