And you thought you could carry that cabin bag for free… this is just the beginning!

April 3, 2012

Allegiant AirWith all the airlines slapping $35-$100 baggage fees on passengers for the last few years, now Allegiant Air (similar to Spirit Air) has taken it to the next level and this is just the beginning for all the other airlines to follow.

Allegiant Air announced on Monday that it would start charging passengers $35 for carry-on luggage by Wednesday.

The bag fee will go live on the airline’s website at midnight Tuesday. Spokesman Jessica Wheeler confirmed to the website that passengers will be allowed one free personal item, such as a purse or briefcase, but anything larger will incur a fee. Passengers can pay the $35 fee at the airport, or “check in” their carry-on prior to heading to the airport in order to save an undisclosed (or perhaps as-yet-to-be-determined) amount.

Allegiant won’t be the first airline to charge passengers for their carry-on bags. In August 2010, Spirit Air installed its $45 carry-on fee. And very soon we may see other airlines like United, Southwest, American and Delta also charging for carry-on bags, especially with the rising fuel costs.
