Spirit Airlines is catching flak over an ad campaign to announce their $69 fares and the addition of the 69th plane to their fleet. The ad read: "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." An airline spokesman said, "We have a long history of taking major, national news stories, or just things we like to have fun with and connecting them to our marketing. The vast majority of our customers think they're funny, and accept them for what they are. We realize and accept that a small group of people might not think the same way."
