According to....well....this....a Spirit Airlines flight to Las Vegas, operated by an American Airlines MD-80, slid off a taxiway at Chicago O'Hare.

That is a file photo in the FOX article. If you look closely, you can see the "photoshop" work on the image to remove the American logos.

 

The Spirit aicraft involved was N502NK, an A319-132.

Do not believe everything you see and hear from the mainstream media regarding aviation stories. Stick with aviation related venues for correct aviation news.

Yes, I know it was an A319 that was involved, and I am aware they blurred out the American title and logo. The initial post was more of a joke, seeing as they put a plane that was obviously an American Airlines jet. Ironically, I found the link on another website, and THAT person had only posted it because the picture was just so wrong.

If I had made it any more obvious, it wouldn't be nearly as funny, now would it.

Obviously funny? You missed the mark.
