Spirit’s New Carry-On Baggage Charges

Spirit Airlines - New Carry-on Baggage FeeSpirit Airlines, a budget carrier based in Florida, announced a plan on Tuesday that would charge passengers up to $45 per carry-on bag.

They are the first airline to implement a cash for carry-on plan.

Passengers might be used to overweight baggage fees, but if these new fees prove to be successful for the airlines, all luggage might become excess baggage.

On The Early Show this morning, Peter talked about the carry-on fee and why he hopes the new charges will not fly.
