Spirit Air To Charge Extra For...Several Things

By RobotGod     Mar 7, 2007 in Business
Spirit Air announced new fees starting June 20, 2007 that will penalize flyers for using extra services. Like having a piece of luggage...
Spirit Air will begin charging extra fees for several different things. Below is a breakdown:
• $5 flat fee for EACH checked bag, up to 50 lbs., if arranged in advance online
• $10 flat fee per checked bag, up to 50 lbs., if you wait until the airport to pay the fee
• All beverages such as coffee, juice, and soda will cost $1 (water is free)
• First class is downgraded to premium economy. It's renamed "the Big Front Seat." No more free booze.
What are they NOT charging fees for? Will it soon be cheaper to mail yourself to your destination? Obviously they are one of many airlines crying that they are losing money. The TRUTH of that statement is always "Actually we make alot, it is just that our CEOs salaries account for too much of it. And since they cant take a pay cut and help the common employee, we are passing it on to you so that they may continue to abuse the system."
Will other airlines follow suite? The air car will put them out of business one day anyway, but way to stick it to the consumer!
