    Post $20 Carry-On Bag Fee on Spirit Airlines

    Spirit Airline just announced that they will start charging $20.00 (and up) per carry-on bag for flights after August 1st. If it fits under the seat, it's still free, but most people take larger bags.

    Here's the link for the info: Spirit Airlines - cheap tickets, cheap flights, discount airfare, cheap hotels, cheap car rentals, cheap travel

    The question is if other airlines will follow.

    Yeah, I'm surprised that other airlines haven't had this policy before.

    I'm waiting for the next step, which will undoubtedly be for airlines to follow RyanAir's lead and install pay toilets in the planes.

    I'll take the carry-on fees and apply them towards a ticket on a better airline.

    Pay toilets? I'll not pay a dime to use them. I'll use the aisle before I give them money to relieve myself.

    Re: $20 Carry-On Bag Fee on Spirit Airlines

    Yes but on the news they said the flights are really cheap - like $45 to fly to Bermuda. So I don't think thisis a big deal - it puts them in competition with other airlines.

    Now, the reasons that i heard why they are doing it are lame. And I really hope the other airlines don't get ideas - I bet the outcry would be so much though.

    How much can you pack in a bag that fits under the seat? Not much!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I asked my wife (who flies more often than I do) what she would do, and she replied, "Depends".

    I assumed all airlines were already charging for carry-on.
