Spirit Airlines Gives Baby Free Birthday Flights for Life

June 29, 2017

Spirit Airlines has given a special passenger free flights for life. Christina Penton gave birth to her baby boy while on a flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Dallas recently when she realized she needed medical help. 

According to Yahoo, the crew had already welcomed Penton's baby boy prior to the emergency landing. After being born on an airplane, Christoph Lezcano will now be gifted free flights for life with an option of bringing a guest on his birthday (only) every year. 

The airline also plans to have a sale on flights for Spirit customers in honor of the newborn.
