Spirit Airlines Complaint - Tired of being nickeled & dimed
We are very frequent travelers on Spirit Airlines and have watched our convenient and affordable mode of travel change drastically over the years. Currently we are being overcharged to death with all the extra charges for everything imaginable. When purchasing a ticket for air flight, it should be assumed you get a seat and can bring luggage for the cost of you ticket. But not on Spirit. Obviously, there is a privilege to seat in a seat - so we must be charged extra. Oh, you want to bring clothes and necessities with you! There will be a charge for that too. And on and on. The biggest insult is the charge for carry on luggage. While it is true that people have abused this practice (because they don't want to pay for checked luggage), it would have made perfect sense to put a limit on size and weight for carry on. But not Spirit - they saw another opportunity to charge. Who runs this company? Don't they have any common sense? But, of course, the people running the company fly for free and don't get charged for anything. They are completely out of touch with reality. In the future, we will travel airlines that are more people friendly. It makes more sense to charge one price for the airline ticket and not all the "extras" everywhere.
