Friendly skies this fall?


If you're planning to fly anywhere this summer or fall, it pays to show around for airfare.  But also pay attention to the fees you have to pay on top of your ticket.  Baggage fees, in particular, have been rising.  So, one airline's "cheap" ticket plus a charge for baggage may end up NOT being a bargain.

Low-cost carrier Spirit has announced it will raise its overhead baggage fee to $100 starting in the fall, as an incentive to get people to pre-pay baggage fees... or to get everyone to pack a bag that will fit in the seat in front of them!
