By Joshua Rhett Miller / Fox News.com – Spirit Airlines is finding out that if you take on one old soldier, you can end up facing an army.
Veterans groups around the nation are rallying to the side of dying Vietnam veteran and ex-Marine Jerry Meekins, 76, of Clearwater, Fla., following the airline’s refusal to refund him $197 for a ticket after the doctor treating him for terminal esophageal cancer told him not to fly. Meekins told FoxNews.com he’s received “hundreds of calls” from veterans nationwide who are as mad at Spirit as he is.
“The response from most veterans is that they’re going to boycott Spirit Airlines,” Meekins told FoxNews.com. “We’re talking 6 or 7 million people.”
CKA – Something tells me that Spirit Airlines is going to lose a lot more than $197 dollars with this public relations disaster. Fools!!
