It’s bad enough to have to pay between $20-$25 to check a bag for a flight and now Spirit Airlines wants to charge people $45 just to bring a carry-on bag on their flights, each way!!
According to the airline, the charge will apply to all bags placed in the overhead bin. If your bag fits under the seat in front of you, you won’t be charged.
Spirit will be installing devices which measure the size of carry-on bags to determine if fliers will be required to pay the fee.
This new fee is scheduled to begin on August 1st…the $45 would be charged at the gate and would only be $30 if paid in advance.
Spirit will continue to charge of checked bags as well.
The airline also said it has reduced their lowest fare by $40 on average to balance out the carry-on fee.
What do you think about this?
