Spirit Airlines Complaint - So you think you are getting a good deal with Spirit airlines?
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS -- So you think you are getting a good deal with Spirit airlines? Well think again.
I just came back from the airport to drop off my mother. I purchased her spirit airline ticket, round trip Bogotá- Chicago-Bogotá for $315 which sounds like a great deal right? Well not so much!!, this ended up being the biggest rip off .
On her way from Bogotá to Chicago we paid $60 for the luggage which is ridicules because most airlines will let you check at least one back for free on international travel.
On her way return flight today from Chicago to Bogotá, the same thing, other $60 for her two backs to be checked for an international flight (what a rip off, but at least I knew), however the most disturbing surprise was having to pay, on top of everything else, another $30.00 for her carry on bag!!
This is the first airline that is now charging you for a carry on bag.
Airline ticket $315.00
2 bags from Bogotá to Chicago $60.00
2 bags from Chicago to Bogotá $60.00
1 carry on bag from Chicago to Bogotá $30.00
TOTAL REAL COST $465.00
The last $30 for the carry on bag (on an international flight), caused me to be really upset and for this reason, I will tell everyone I know (and others) about my experience. Before you purchase a ticket from Spirit airlines, make sure you take into account all the extra charges. The truth is that you are no really getting such a great deal after all. You may be better off buying a ticket from another airline.
