Jerry Meekins, a US Army Veteran, was told by his doctor that he was too sick to fly. The airlines will not refund his ticket nor will they allow him to transfer it to his daughter.
Despite all of the public outrage that this case has caused, Spirit Airlines is holding firm on their no-refund policy.
Asked whether he supported a boycott of Spirit Airlines, Meekins said "Yes, I do!". The Boycott Spirit Airlines facebook page has 33,000 fans.
