Disgusting Spirit Airlines Ad!

Tuesday, March 17, 2015 @ 12:45 PM
Disgusting Spirit Airlines Ad! One Million Moms takes aim at Spirit Airlines for sexually suggestive ad campaign.
It’s a shame an airline would advertise in such a way when families fly on their airlines. This time they have outdone themselves with a disgusting ad. -

Spirit Airlines ads often use distasteful marketing choices. For example, there is also their Bare Fare ad. The script for that ad goes: “Our fares are unbundled: no ‘free’ bag, no ‘free’ drink. From the start, it’s just you’re a_s + gas and a personal item.” That included an image of a stick figure covering its privates as though not wearing any clothes. Yesterday, they went too far with their latest perversion and launched their "69" ad. It’s a shame an airline would advertise in such a way when families fly on their airlines. This time they have outdone themselves with a disgusting ad.

The advertisement “We love 69” on their website and in their email campaign reads:

We're celebrating!

We have a new plane!

Fares In This Deal Just $69.00* Round Trip

Includes Taxes & Fees!

We've been waiting to hit 69 planes for years. It's our favorite number – ever since we were twelve and found that magazine under our brother's bed (the one with the fantastic articles). #69 is perfect: just the right size, with a cockpit that's in your face (because it's bright yellow). Use your mouth to spread the word: Spirit is in an even better position to get you where you're going. $69.00*round trip. That's $34.50* each way when traveling to select destinations on select dates in April 2015 and May 2015. Round trip purchase not required. These fares are limited in availability. All flights must be booked by 11:59 PM on March 17, 2015.

The entire marketing campaign is horrible. This suggestive advertisement is offensive and completely inappropriate.

Please use the information we have provided on our website to contact Spirit Airlines urging they pull this offensive 69 ad campaign immediately!
