Spirit Airlines has recently announced that they will charging $45 for carry on baggage. These additional fees that airlines are charging are really getting ridiculous. Spirit Airlines claims most of their fares are being reduced about $40. Why not just leave the fares as is, with no additional cost for baggage? It is deceptive marketing, making you believe you are getting a good deal for a cheaper ticket, when actually you are going to have to pay what you thought was money you were saving when you check in, for your baggage.
As a tour operator who packages all-inclusive culinary tours, it is becoming increasingly difficult to accurately price a tour with all of the additional fees the airlines are tacking on. When an average person takes a vacation, they need to budget for all costs. These extra fees which are constantly changing make it difficult to budget for a vacation because you never know what extra fees you are going to have to pay when you check in.
