Spirit Airlines, which serves Atlantic City, has been in the news recently for two reasons: First, it has declined to refund a non-refundable ticket to a 76-year-old Vietnam vet dying of cancer. Most airlines make exceptions to their ticket rules in such cases, but not Spirit, as you can see in this followup analysis on what the decision might do for the company's reputation.
Now, Spirit is raising its carry-on bag fee to as much as $100. For those of you who fly Spirit, tell us what you actually pay to travel on the airline, and whether you determined the total cost before or after the trip. And was it worth the money? Did you have enough legroom?
