I had a birthday "Hamilton" weekend planned in May, and booked the flights in January. They called and cancelled, offering to rebook in April or refund my money. They had 3 flights a day to Chicago, and now there are NONE - what happened? Why would they discontinue flying to Chicago?

Airlines often change schedules, and sometimes they stop flying a route. Annoying, but it happens. Looks like Spirit added a number of new routes starting today, and apparently, as part of that, they dropped some routes, including MSP-ORD.

You're entitled to a refund, but you're going to have to find another airline to book the trip with.

If routes are no longer profitable, the airlines will stop flying them or make them “seasonal”. We had that issue where I live with Frontier- they came into the market, gave it nine months and suddenly announced they were canceling two routes, leaving passengers with tickets with refunds and having to book on the legacy airlines.

This is the issue with these discount airlines- the can’t afford the keep unprofitable routes.
