First fees for checked baggage, and now fees for carry-on?
Spirit Airlines will be the first of major U.S. airlines to charge customers $45 for any bags placed in the overhead bin. But if you pay online in advance, it will cost you $30. These fees will apply on any flight booked after August 1. Misplaced suitcases, long lines at baggage claim – but most importantly convenience are some of the many reasons why especially frequent travelers choose to bring carry-on.
Of course some items will be exempted from the carry-on fee, including umbrellas, coats, cameras, car seats, strollers, medicine, reading material and food for immediate consumption.
