Class Action

Spirit Airlines “Shortcut Security”

September 2021: The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the dismissal.

September 2020: The named plaintiffs filed a Notice of Appeal regarding the dismissal order.

August 2020: The case was dismissed.

June 2019: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Spirit Airlines for allegedly deceptively advertising a “Shortcut Security” option that allows consumers who pay for this option to use a separate, faster line to get through security at certain U.S. airports when, according to the plaintiffs, the option is a “complete sham.” According to the complaint, the airline sells the “Shortcut Security” option even when the airport does not have a “Shortcut Security” line, meaning that customers who have paid the fee must still use the general population security line. (Román et al v. Spirit Airlines, Inc., Case No. 19-cv-61461, S.D. Fla.)
