Oh, Spirit Airlines! You never cease to disappoint us!
To recap, Spirit became the first American airline to charge a fee for carry-on baggage back in 2010. Ugh.
Then, back in June we heard the LAME news that the airline had plans to start charging $5 for boarding passes printed out by Spirit agents EACH WAY.
They had said that they wouldn't charge anything extra if you check in online or print your own boarding pass…but it looks like they're making up for that with new added fees!
That's right, folks! The airline has just announced that they'll start charging NEARLY $34 in fees to buy tickets online!!!!!! WTF!!!!!
Apparently, they used to charge an $8.99 "passenger usage fee" each way…but now they're charging $16.99 for that BS fee EACH WAY!
And yes, they will charge U for a glass of water while on the plane! We've actually heard a case where someone needed a drink for medication, and even THEN the airline put up a fight before handing out a free glass of water. Awful.
Might as well just change their name to SCAM AIRLINES. It's a shorter name than "Spirit," so maybe they can save even more money on paint.
What do U think? Will U still fly Spirit even after these new price hikes???
