The news is not good for people flying Spirit Airlines these days.
According to the Detroit Free Press: “Spirit Airlines will punish procrastinators by charging $100 for travelers who wait to pay for their carry-on bags until they get to the gate.The higher charge will begin Nov. 6, Spirit announced on Monday. The fee has been $45. Spirit and Allegiant are the only airlines in the U.S. that charge for carry-on bags.
Spirit’s rationale? It aims to make customers so wary of the steep fee that all will pay ahead of time. However, Spirit is also raising other bag fees effective Nov. 6. A carry-on bag paid for at booking will be $35, up from $30; a carry-on bag paid for at the airport check-in counter will be $50, up from $40.That means that a family of four with only carry-on bags will pay between $140 and $400 each way.”
