Discount Airline Piles on Blagojevich

2011_6_28_spirit_air.jpg Not surprised that a business is already using the Rod Blagojevich verdict to market a sale; only at how fast it took. Spirit Airlines has an internet special on their website where the discount airline is offering $17 "f-ing golden" one-way fares. The tagline to the ad: "we are guilty of selling seats but we don't expect to serve time."

Even though Spirit flies out of O'Hare, don't expect to find any specials from there. CBS Chicago reports the airport isn't included in the offer.
