In the News: Holy Carry-On Charges!

Heading off in one of these? It might be easier (and cheaper!) to just buy all new things when you get there instead of having carry ons.

A friend of mine over at Her Two Cents posted an interesting little morsel of information today about how Spirit Airlines is apparently now charging $45 for carry-on bags that are big enough that they need to be stored in overhead bins  (one personal, under-the-seat-fitting carry on item is still allowed for free). Oh but wait, in an effort to appease us, it’s only $30 to carry-on if you book it online.

Checking a bag will still cost you $25.

Not fun, my friends, not fun at all.
