…but you must submit your valid claim using this form no later than Wednesday, January 10, 2024 at 8:59:59 in the morning Pacific Standard Time; and you must be a legal resident of the United States in order to be a member of the class action lawsuit settlement.

Be aware that your claim will only be affected by the statute of limitations if the statute of limitation of your state is fewer than six years and you purchased your ticket with Spirit Airlines earlier than the number of years indicated prior to Thursday, August 31, 2017.

In August of 2017, a class action lawsuit was filed against Spirit Airlines in which the plaintiffs alleged that they entered into a contract with Spirit Airlines through certain on-line travel agents to fly as passengers on airplanes which were operated by Spirit Airlines; and that the price they paid for those flights included their right to carry a bag aboard the airplane for no additional charge. The plaintiffs allege that Spirit Airlines breached that contract when they were later required to pay a fee to Spirit Airlines to carry a bag aboard the airplane.

The defendants deny that:

  • Any and all allegations of wrongdoing and do not admit or concede any actual or potential fault, wrongdoing, or liability whatsoever with respect to any facts or claims that have been or could have been alleged in the lawsuit or any similar action; and do not concede any defenses that have been or could have been asserted
  • They violated the law and specifically deny that any damages were incuned as a result
  • The proposed settlement suggests that the defendants have done anything wrong
  • Plaintiffs — as well as the group of individuals that plaintiffs seek to represent — would or would not win their case if it were to go to trial
  • Any damages are provable for plaintiffs and/or the members of the class action

The deadline to object to opt out and exclude yourself from the class action settlement — or to object to it — has passed.

The court will hold a hearing to decide whether to give final approval to the settlement at 6:30 in the morning Pacific Standard Time on Monday, December 11, 2023 at:

United States District Court For the Eastern District of New York
225 Cadman Plaza East
Brooklyn, New York 11201

At the final hearing, the court will consider whether the settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate. If there are objections, the court will consider them.

If you do decide to participate in this settlement, completion of the claim form supposedly will consume only a few minutes of your time; but do not expect any major windfall, as you will not exactly get rich from this settlement, as members of this class action who file valid claims will be eligible for a share of the remainder of the settlement fund only after attorneys’ fees and other costs are paid. If more people file a claim than expected, then the final financial settlement amount per person will be less than announced.
