Spirit Airlines: "More Bang For Your Buck" Secret Service Sale to Colombia

送信時刻:
 
The airline known for using the foibles of Charlie Sheen, Tiger Woods and former Congressman Anthony Weiner for cheeky ad campaigns that are often as offbeat as they are off-color is at it again. This time, Spirit Airlines is taking a cue from the recent Secret Service sex scandal by offering a “More Bang for your Buck” sale promoting flights to Cartagena, Colombia, as well as domestic destinations.

Now if they would just hire some of the Colunbian ladies for flight attendants they could raise the rates and still sell out.

They have one playing off of the GSA thing on their site too.

The guy who came up wih this absurd ad -obviously having an IQ of less than 50 points- did a hell of a diservice to his airline, you can bet that the are going to fly at 25% capacity or less for quuite sometime: no full blooded Colombian is going to fly with them.
WALLACE24
Why is that?

Can`t you see that this ad promotes sex-tourism which is strictly forbidden in many countries including Colombia, and on top of that it is an insult to Colombian women. If you own shares in Spirit you can use them as toilet paper.

News reports prostitution is legal In Columbia. And because some US government employees acted dumb as usual what bearing does it have on Colombians? If the fares are cheap they will buy the tickets just like everyone else. I don't think Spirit really expects to sell tickets just because there are whorehouses in Columbia. For the price of the ticket you can visit one in your hometown.

It is obvious that you miss the subtle niceties of other countrie´s culture. If Vegas flaunts shamelessly scantly clad broads is because that is what Vegas is all about, both sides of The Strip and beyhond, but that is not what Cartagena or Colombia for that matter is all about.

Apparantly the powers at Spirit think these tongue n cheek ads are cute. I doubt it impacts business much either way. I'll stay out of the politics of cathouses.

BTW, the subtle niceties of which you speak could include what you are speaking against. I'm sure that's how "all the presidents men" we're thinking. Lol

Contrary to popular belief, there's ho's in every town, city, province, etc...

Rodney is a classic. As for the other I'm just saying you don't have to travel all the way to Columbia to buy what ever your pleasures may be. Our goverent employees already being there on assignment took advantage of the opportunities. My big point is that these employees were not unaccustomed to these things and this is not a first time occurance. They have the same disease as their superiors. "we are special".
