JetBlue Announces Plans To Buy Spirit Airlines

Low budget vacations may be a thing of the past! JetBlue announced Thursday morning it would purchase Spirit Airlines.  JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes said on behalf of the airline:

“We are excited to deliver this compelling combination that turbocharges our strategic growth, enabling JetBlue to bring our unique blend of low fares and exceptional service to more customers, on more routes.”

Even though both airlines have very low base prices, industry experts say the deal can lead to higher fares across the industry. Will you miss Spirit airlines?  Hopefully the WiFi stays inexpensive!
