WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 2, 2021) - The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, representing Spirit Flight Attendants, released the following statement:

'Spirit Airlines is experiencing operational issues causing flight delays and cancellations due to weather, schedule month change over, and IT outages.
