The low-cost airline's cheeky messages to customers caught the eyes of customers. They included: "Even Hillary wouldn't delete our email offers!" a jab at the Democratic candidate's embarrassing investigation by the FBI into her private email servers.

Adverts on the website today showed Donald Trump with a pained expression and pointing a finger angrily with the caption "Down with low fares, down with high walls" and "only thing lower than our fares... Hillary's chances in Alabama."
