NEW YORK — Putting a bag in the overhead bin will soon cost some Spirit Airlines passengers $100. That’s more than they may have paid for their tickets.
The Miramar, Fla., airline currently charges $45 for a carry-on bag. As of Nov. 6, customers who wait to pay the fee at the boarding gate will fork over $100. Any bag that needs to fit in the overhead bin is considered a carry-on. A small bag that fits under the seat is free.
The price for a carry-on paid for at an airport kiosk will increase to $50 from $40.
