Spirit Doesn't Want Customers To Pay $100 For A Bag At The Gate

Spirit's "Bring Less, Pay Less" bag program passes the cost of handling bags solely to those bringing bags rather than have everyone subsidize these costs.  Customers who bring less, pay less.  That's exactly what has happened at Spirit.  Spirit's customers have reduced the amount of baggage, saved money and helped the company conserve the equivalent of nearly six million gallons of fuel in the last year alone compared to the rate of consumption before the introduction of the program.

Spirit Bag Fees (effective November 6, 2012):

 
  $9 Fare Club Member Online Standard Online Telephone Reservations Airport Ticket Counter or Kiosk Boarding Gate
Checked Bag $20 $30 $35 $45 $100
Carry-on $25 $35 $40 $50 $100

Spirit continues to offer customers one free personal item that fits under the seat free of charge.  Also, a list of other items that are exempt from the carry-on bag fee can be found at spirit.com.

Spirit encourages customers to save the most time and money by reserving their bags online in advance at spirit.com.
