This is the Spirit’s fifth livery since the airline started in 1980. The airline said that it went with this livery because “the simple, two-color design is much more cost-effective than more complex, multi-colored designs.”
Spirit’s fleet of 35 Airbus airplanes – 26 A319s, 7 A320s, 2 A321s – will take 2-3 years to repaint the fleet, and the paint will be updated only when the airplane is due for new paint. Spirit plans to have 7 painted yellow by then end of the year, and new deliveries will be yellow as well.
Spirit is daring to be different, but why does the new color scheme and logo remind me of the cellular carrier Sprint?
