    Spirit Airlines is thinking outside of the bottle.

    The low-cost carrier known for extra fees and cheeky ads is now pouring wine out of aluminum cans.
    Starting this week, passengers can purchase white moscato or strawberry moscato wine from Friends Fun Wine, an Aventura, Fla. company. Spirit will continue to sell mini bottles of Sutter Home wine.

    The can of wine is larger — 250 milliliters to the bottle's 187 — but it doesn't pack as much of a punch. The canned wine is 6 percent alcohol by volume. Sutter Home is 13 percent.
    Spirit likes the cans because they are easier to stack and store on airplanes with limited storage space. They also weigh less and airlines are obsessed with making their planes lighter to save on fuel.

    This is the latest cost-saving move from the Miramar, Fla., airline, which charges $3 for a drink of water and $35 to place a bag in the overhead bin.

    I wonder how much cheaper the wine in cans is..... and whether it's any good to start with.

    Considering this is Spirit, expectations are to remain low.
