Not sure the story supports your headline.

The story seemed focused on bogus hotel reviews, not airline reviews.  Or am I missing something?

As to Spirit, they have 18,000 reviews (which may be high, but in comparison Alaska has 15,000, Alitalia has 19,000 and American has 68,000), and an average rating of 3 (out of 5), or mediocre.  Doesn't sound like what you'd expect if the ratings were being "pumped", does it?
