SPIRIT AIRLINES Loses 1 of Their 8 Customers

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.
