Spirit Airlines has officially announced that any passenger’s bag that can’t be stowed under the seat will incur a $45 charge. As a traveling performer who usually flies at least twice a week, I would like to go on the record as saying…..Fuck Spirit Airlines.
Are you kidding me? Charging people for carrying on items that fit in the overhead space? Well, my friends; we have encountered more bullshit than a street-sweeper in Pomplona.
Airlines are charging us for checked baggage (except Southwest and Northwest/Delta, God bless ‘em!); food and now carry-ons? What’s next, it’s gonna cost us for peanuts? Air vent-turn on fees? Bathroom visits? During turbulence, there’s an automatic “oxygen mask usage fee”? Where does it end?
Before you board Spirit Airlines, they should pass out condoms and K-Y; but then they’d charge us for that, too!
Well, here’s the good news: I’ve never flown Spirit, so I did some research. Spirit Airlines is a low-cost carrier based in Miramar, Florida that flies to the Caribbean, Bahamas and Central/South America. So in the long run, this new carry-on fee will only affect 7 people.
