US low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines will be revising its fees for carry-on luggage with effect from November 6, 2012.
During online booking, the fee for a checked bag will be $35 USD. At the airport check-in counter, the fee will be $50 USD. At the gate, the fee further increases to $100 USD.
Carry-on luggage fees are the same for domestic and international flights.
The maximum dimensions for carry-on luggage are 22 x 18 x10 inches (56 x 46 x 25 cm).
A Spirit Airlines spokesperson said: “Spirit offers customers multiple opportunities to avoid this unnecessary fee and save money,” he said. “By planning ahead and paying for bags before getting to the boarding gate, our customers are saving time at the airport and speeding up the boarding process. When our customers choose these time-saving, self-service options, our costs go down, and we can pass those savings along to our customers.”
