A: Using Spirit Airlines' logo or trademark to develop a product would generally require written permission from Spirit Airlines, as their logo and trademark are protected intellectual property. Using these without proper authorization could potentially lead to trademark infringement issues.

To avoid legal complications, it's advisable to reach out to Spirit Airlines and request their permission to use their logo or trademark for your specific product. They may grant you permission under certain conditions, or they may deny it altogether. Keep in mind that each case can be unique, and it's essential to follow the proper legal procedures to obtain permission if you intend to use their branding.

Consulting with legal counsel experienced in intellectual property matters may also be beneficial, as they can guide you through the process of seeking permission and ensure that your use of Spirit Airlines' logo or trademark aligns with applicable laws and regulations in the United States.
