This is what happens when the geeks are allowed to price plane tickets

Let’s just say you’re a geek and you have access to an airline pricing system. Your boss tells you they need a new gimmick for pricing the next sale. If you’re working at Spirit Airlines, this is what you’d come up with: a collection of seats on sale for $1, $2, $3, $5, $8, $13, $21, $34 and $55 per seat. Recognize the pattern? They call it the “Fibonacci Sale” for obvious reasons.

Sale expires tonight at midnight Eastern, but it sure was fun while it lasted.
