Spirit Nixes Commissions

As of Thursday, Spirit Airlines has discontinued its 5 percent agent commission for bookings made through its web site. A spokesperson for the airline e-mailed Travel Agent to say the move, which affects agents in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, is part of Spirit's "continued effort to lower fares and increase flexibility."
