For people who ride Spirit, they will be raising the bag fees a couple of bucks for the holidays - to encourage customers to pack a bit lighter. Guess they don't care that passengers might be flying with gifts. https://www.yahoo.com/travel/seriously-spirit-airlines-raises-bag-fees-for-holiday-98142801447.html Here is an explanation Temporary Holiday Bag Price Change Winter is coming.... and that means holidays. Which means more people than ever will be flying with Spirit to visit their loved ones. To make sure we have room for everyone's bags, we're encouraging customers to pack a bit lighter. So, for travel booked after 8/19/14, for flights between 12/18/14 and 1/5/15, standard checked bags will be $2 more than listed below. Spend less time packing and more time laughing with family and friends this holiday season....... I'm surprised that they don't raise the bag fees another $5 or $10, a $2 increase IMHO really won't make people travel any lighter.
