I’ve been quite supportive of Spirit’s fee-driven low fares. If they want to keep fares very low and charge passengers for everything else, go for it. But I’m going to draw the line here: the airline is now tacking on a $10 “web convenience fee” for booking a roundtrip ticket online. Of course, there are additional fees if you purchase on the phone. So you may be wondering, if Spirit advertises a $59 each-way fare, but it’s going to cost you $64 each way, why can it be advertised as $59? The answer? Um, because those are the rules. It’s nuts, and it’s not fair to consumers.
