Pilots at Spirit Airlines Inc. on Saturday launched a strike after the failure of last-minute talks to defuse a dispute that already had grounded some flights, according to union representatives.
Flight crew at the low-cost U.S. carrier started the indefinite action after twice extending a deadline during overnight talks, according to the Air Line Pilots Association, International.
The Florida airline already had canceled some weekend flights in anticipation of industrial action, while talks continued to avert the first strike at a U.S. carrier in five years.
"Immediately after 5 a.m., the Spirit Pilot Master Executive Council, as authorized by our pilots, called for and instituted a lawful strike against our management," said a statement from Capt. Sean Creed, head of the Spirit unit of ALPA. The union said the flight crew "will not return to the cockpit until a fair and equitable contract is negotiated."
Spirit offered no immediate comment.
Wow. I'm still partly surprised it actaully went this far.

Good luck guys.

You are still welcome on JB flights...as far as I heard. CASS should still be good too.
Good Luck Guys. It's nice to see people stand up for themselves. I predict this will be short lived, so hang in there...

Talking Heads - Burning Down The House

Watch out ( Benny ) you might get what you're after
Cool baby strange but not a stranger
I'm an ordinary guy
Burning down the house

Hold tight wait 'til the party's over
Hold tight we're in for nasty weather
There has got to be a way
Burning down the house

Here's your ticket pack your bag; time for jumpin' overboard
Transportation is here
Close enough but not too far, maybe you know where you are
Fightin' fire with fire

All wet yeah you might need a raincoat
Shakedown thieves walking in broad daylight
Three hundred sixty five degrees
Burning down the house

It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
Gonna come in first place
People on their way to work say baby what did you expect
Gonna burst into flame

My house is out of the ordinary
That's right Don't want to hurt nobody

Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
Burning down the house

No visible means of support and you have not seen nothing yet
Everything's stuck together
I don't know what you expect staring into the TV set
Fighting fire with fire

Burning down the house

Dirtbag AirTran management has rescinded the reciprocal jumpseat agreement with Spirit pilots. AirTran ALPA has preemptively set up a buddy pass donation program where Spirit pilots can ride on our planes using employee buddy passes. If any Spirit pilots are stuck and need to fly on AirTran call our Jumpseat chairmen.
