Spirit Airlines To Hike Some Carry-On Bag Fees To $100

MIRAMAR, Fla. (CBSMiami) – Miramar-based Spirit Airlines has never met a fee it wasn’t willing to charge passengers. Now, the budget airline will hike some carry-on baggage fess to $100.

Spirit Air currently charges $45 for a carry-on bag. But as of November 6, customers who wait to pay the fee at the gate will pay $100. The fee will apply to any bag that has to be placed in the overhead bin.

The price for a carry-on bag paid for at an airport kiosk will increase from $40 to $50.

Spirit said larger pieces of luggage checked at the airport will cost between $8 and $10 more, while the fee for bags checked online will rise by between $2 and $5. Spirit will also increase a handful of other fees by between $2 and $10.

Spirit is one of only two airlines that charge for carry-on bags, the other being Allegiant Airlines.

In the first fiscal quarter, Spirit’s average revenue from fees per passengers on a round-trip flight was more than $100 for the first time in the company’s history.

Spirit frequently offers fares as low as $9, but when all the fees for various other things are added to the cost of the ticket, the $9 fare is long gone.
