Flying after a summer storm in Chicago. Southwest yes. Spirit airlines no.

I am glad I could reschedule my southwest flight that was delayed in Monday night at Chicago midway due to stormy weather. On Tuesday by noon it was clear blue sky and my new noon flight left almost on time (I had enough time to get an excellent corned beef sandwich and potato pancake at Manny’s! My sister in law was not co lucky with her spirit airlines flight on Tuesday eve. by the morning, she was already getting ominous texts about delays and sure enough, she spent a long night at the airport and never left. Wednesday there was more waiting until she finally got a flight to Austin, where she waited some more. Awful. Hoping she is home with her sweet Lucy and husband now. And hoping my son doesn’t encounter similar issues when he flies spirit to Lima this summer.
