AA did provide some amazingly good deals to the places Spirit flew to while they were around. Amazingly, those fares don't seem to be around any longer.
My favorite destination was the Dominican Republic. AA typically charges half a new borne for flights from DFW-Santo Domingo. During the Spirit service, they actually reduced their fares to be somewhat comparable to whay they charge out of markets where they face competition.
