Allegiant to Charge for Carry On Bags

(Via Airline Reporter)

Allegiant will reportedly implement a fee to carry a bag on to their flights beginning today, matching Spirit Airlines’ carry on policy. The fee (which is not yet live on their site) will reportedly be $15-$30 if you book in advance (depending on the route) or $35 if you pay at the airport.

This shouldn’t be much of a surprise as the airline has said they’ve been considering the fee, and I’m certain they’ve been salivating as they’ve seen Spirit Airlines’ extremely impressive ancillary fee revenue. Considering Allegiant and Spirit are the two most profitable airlines in the US, passengers are complaining about ancillary charges but paying them anyway.
