Spirit Airlines says it won't fly on Thursday, as a pilot strike continues.

Pilots walked out on Saturday in a dispute over pay. The airline has not flown since then.

Negotiators for the pilots union and the airline are expected to meet today, although it's not clear what the chances are that they'll make a deal.

Spirit carries roughly 16,000 passengers per day, and many of them have been stranded by the flight cancellations. Spirit says it's offering credit for future flights, or customers can get a refund if they call the airline.
