Spirit explained that they are passing the cost of handling the bags to passengers who carries them rather than charging them to all customers.

The $100 bag fee will be collected from customers who will pay the carry-on fee at the boarding gate.

Spirit reportedly offers low airfares, however, their average passenger usually pays more than $100 per round trip in fees.

Not all Spirit passengers though will be paying the $100 bag fee. Below is the carry-on bag charging scheme of the Florida-based airline.

  • $25 for members of Spirit’s $9 Fare Club
  • $35 for online payee
  • $40 when passengers pay over the phone
  • $50 when payment is made at the airport ticket counter
  • $100 if passengers declare their carry-on bag at the gate.

A passenger is allowed to have one personal item for free.
