Spirit Airlines to Charge for Soda, Checked Luggage

It was early yesterday when I read about Spirit Airlines, so I missed the most important piece of news buried in their press release:  Soda and coffee will now cost $1, and checked bags will cost $5 if done in advance online or $10 if done at the airport.  In return, Spirit has said they have lowered fares across the board up to 40%.  Yes, this sounds like Ryanair.  Look for other carriers to follow soon enough.
