Nikki Giavasis filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Feb. 2 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Spirit Airlines Inc. and Does 1-10, alleging they obtained profit through unfair or deceptive trade or commerce.

According to the complaint, Giavasis and other consumers have lost money or property from being deceived by Spirit to purchase airfare tickets that the defendant has misrepresented to be the lowest on the market.

Giavasis seeks trial by jury, an order certifying the class and appointing Giavasis as representative of the class, restitution and disgorgement of profits, corrective advertising, actual, punitive and statutory enhanced damages, attorney fees, court costs, interest and all other just relief. The plaintiffs are represented by attorney Todd M. Friedman of Law Offices of Todd. M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills.
