If you remain skeptical of the airline stocks, Jim Cramer suggests giving this play a closer look.
"About two months ago, I did something unprecedented here on Mad Money I recommended the airlines," reminded the Mad Money host. (Click here to go to Wait, What? Cramer Likes Airline Stocks?!!)
Cramer made the call in early March and the development was startling because it was the first time in over a decade that he got behind any stock in the sector. At the time Cramer cited the significant consolidation in the industry as a major catalyst.
However, if you're a skeptic and can't get behind the thesis, Cramer has an altenative idea. "Why don't you pick up some Spirit Airlines," he said.
The argument against airlines involves their business operations; "skeptics say they're too bloated and have debt-laden balance sheets," Cramer explained.
However, the Mad Money host doesn't think Spirit is at risk of any of either pitfall, in part because the airline operates extremely efficiently.
