LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Spirit Airlines (SAVE.N), a fast-growing, low-cost U.S. carrier that flies an all-Airbus SE (AIR.PA) fleet, is looking at both the Airbus A321neo and a larger Boeing Co (BA.N) aircraft to fuel its growth, Chief Executive and President Ted Christie said on Monday.

“The A321neo is certainly something we’re looking at, but we’re also in conversations with Boeing about their larger airplane too, so it’s all on the table,” Christie said at an aviation conference.
