Remember how I’ve bitched about Spirit Airlines? Check this.
Putting a bag in the overhead bin will soon cost some Spirit Airlines passengers $100. That’s more than they may have paid for their tickets. The Miramar, Fla., airline currently charges $45 for a carry-on bag. As of Nov. 6, customers who wait to pay the fee at the boarding gate will fork over $100. Any bag that needs to fit in the overhead bin is considered a carry-on. A small bag that fits under the seat is free. The price for a carry-on paid for at an airport kiosk will increase to $50 from $40.
You might recall that Spirit is fighting a recent federal ruling that airlines must fully disclose all fees and taxes with their advertised fares.
