    Looks like Spirit can’t keep up with their impressive club discounts and stay afloat. It’s a sad road that airlines are going down. These baggage fees are pure profit for the airlines. They used it as a way to justify the higher gas prices two years ago and kept them after prices returned to normal levels. This is stealing and it should be stopped.
