Any list that doesn't have spirit dead last is one that can't be taken seriously.

They said they excluded Hawaiian due to the relatively few flights they operate on the mainland and thus not subject to the major weather issues at the same rate as these other carriers.

I give the "Most Improved" award to Spirit.

As a Frontier pilot, its encouraging to see that a ULCC can do well.
