    Angry Airline to charge for carry ons

    Spirit Airlines to charge up to $45 for carry-ons - Yahoo! News

    Even though it's a minor player, bigger airlines are likely to watch to see whether customers are willing to pay for carry-ons. None of the major carriers made any immediate changes to their fees on Tuesday morning.

    Fees for checking bags on the big U.S. carriers got started in 2008. At first, many travelers thought they wouldn't last. But now all the big airlines except Southwest and JetBlue charge to check a bag on domestic flights.
    Next they'll charge a fee for the privilege of using the bathroom. :steam:

    This is the opening salvo, before 2008 no one charged to check luggage, today only Jet Blue and Southwest don't.

    I believe there already exists such a fee (regarding the bathroom).

    I just saw this. Really sucks, because if Spirit has any success at all with this, all the major carriers will jump on board. I really hate this ala carte system.

    Or...people will fly someone else, 45 is ridiculous amount. don't most airlines start with 20 for checked bags? and that requires more work on their part then carry ons. fuck it don't fly them fly someone else.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    Airlines have already made the decision that they will only be able to do business with those who have no other choice than to fly. They should just quadruple their base ticket rates immediately and dispense with this fee nonsense since the application of individual fees can carry high administrative costs.

    Air travel is really no longer feasible for normal Americans. Even if you can "afford" it, it's really more than people should spend at this point, even for a Christmas trip to visit the family...

    The airlines are like the coach & buggy; their time has come and gone. No reason to fly to meetings or conferences with Go2Meeting and Skype, especially not for thousands of dollars. New video cards have up to 6 connectors for 6 LCD screens for gaming. Pretty soon, you'll be able to video conference with up to hundreds of users simultaneously.

    On another front, gas will probably hit at least $10/gallon by the end of this year due to both actual prices and inflation. Time to start riding a horse to the local farmer's market...
