Spirit Airlines is notoriously known for its extra baggage fees – cabin and carry-on. The airline has increased the carry-on baggage fees to $35 if purchased during online booking ($25 for members of the airline’s fare club) and $50 if purchased at the airport kiosk.
Also, your first checked bag now costs $30 if paid during online booking ($20 for fare club member), which increases to $45 if purchased at the airport kiosk. And starting Tuesday, will go up to $100 if you check it at the gate.
Yes, $100 per bag if you forget to pay in advance.
You can still carry a purse, briefcase or other small personal item for free.
Allegiant Air now gives a discount for paying with a debit card versus a credit card, and Virgin America has charged an extra $20 on some flights for seats closer to the front of the plane with early boarding.
Coming up soon – penalties or fees for not printing your boarding passes, or not paying baggage fees or not check-in online before arriving at the airport.
