  • This was back in April 2010.  Spirit Airlines charging $45 for a carry-on.  They might have change the policy so do check their website.  Check with your airlines for luggage fees.

  • no because they charge you for heavy bags. I pack the same and just pay.

  • Southwest doesn't charge. I don't fly any airline but Southwest if there is anyway I can avoid it.

  • We definitely took less. Instead of taking the one bag per ticket that used to be included, we only took one suitcase and just crammed our stuff in there so we didn't have to pay for more than one.

  • I paid the 25.00 fee to put it on the plane. I'm more peeved about the fact you have to pay an enormous amt. of money to have something to eat. I flew from Oregon to Florida, without enough lay over time in Chicago to purchase snacks and I was STARVING by the time I made it to Florida!! No more free peanuts :(

  • Sort of. I was going to check DS's bag but when I realized they charged I just carried it on with me and saved myself an extra $25.
