Spirit Air Lines - Baggage Rip Off
Baggage Charges - Complaint
The charge for bags is $43.00 per bag each way (and they lowered weight to 40 pounds).Being a "free Spirit" member I get a discount if I check bags ahead of time but the sight wouldn't let me sign in to do so. I told the attendant at the check in and he said he had heard this before and I should call and get a refund. I called and they told me in very broken English that I should have checked in ahead of time and I, member or not, was out of luck.
Most uncomfortable flight ever ...no magazines now because the seats are so close you can't open them unless you hold it over your head my knees were against the seat in front of me. Glad I didn't have a carry-on bag, between my wife and I baggage fee would have almost been a third ticket....I don't dare waist my time trying to get my $9 fare club money back!
