We've added an update to yesterday's post about comparing the cost of driving to flying when traveling to your destination at The World on Wheels. It's a real-world example calculating the cost of traveling to Seattle from Southern California which would be right on the edge of the drive/fly debate for us. Come on over and join the debate - as always your opinions are welcome and always appreciated:

Anil I just googled their load average and couldn't find anything for the fall. However I have found this:  Allegiant Air (91.3%) and Spirit Airlines (90.0%) reported the best loads and the strongest load factor growth in July of 5.0 ppts and 4.4 ppts, respectively.  

This appears to indicate that an airline can lie to people and still have a good load factor.

This is an election year in the US. Everyone gets inspired to do little bit of hyperbolic lying :)  The true story is in the load averages that Spirit has been seeing since Fall '11.

Spirit Airlines does not fly to Spain where I live now for two years. However I read your article about the airline and even went to the website where I saw the window with the big "warning." Are there not laws in the USA to criminalize this lying?

Here is my take on the Spirit foolishness. has lots on the new airline rules. Been working hard on these issues in Washington. It is nice to finally see something happening.

Spirit Airlines warns, “Spirit must now HIDE the government's taxes and fees in your fares” because of the new rules on showing total cost of tix. Just one problem with that, says Business Travel Coalition chair Kevin Mitchell: It's not true. In an article at eTurboNews, Mitchell says, “With this ill-considered attack on DOT, Spirit Airlines has reached a new low and no doubt secured the Poster-Child crown for 2012 for misleading consumers."  How does Spirit get away with outright lying?
