Why is Spirit Airlines cancelling flights and what should you do if it happens to you?

Spirit Airlines cancelled or delayed almost 300 flights citing “operational challenges”, leaving thousands of passengers stranded at airports in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and San Juan in Puerto Rico.

A spokesperson said the airline was working to find solutions for affected customers, which the Associated Press reported were on 227 cancelled flights and another 58 delayed, per data from tracking website FlightAware.com.

“We’re working around the clock to get back on track in the wake of some travel disruptions over the weekend due to a series of weather and operational challenges,” spokesperson Field Sutton in a statement with media.

“We needed to make proactive cancellations to some flights across the network, but the majority of flights are still scheduled as planned.”

Spirit Airlines is directing affected customers to check their email before leaving for the airport to confirm whether their flight has been cancelled or delayed.

The fastest way to receive direct assistance from the airline is through their webchat platform, they said.

According to data from FlightAware.com, 227 flights were cancelled and another 58 delayed
