“Oh, by the way, you DO know there is a cost to carry on that small bag of yours, right?” WAIT, WHAT? Now you have to pay to bring ANYTHING on a plane? I think this is absolutely ridiculous!
In a world where we pay extra fees for everything, it is hard to imagine that there could be just one more thing that costs. Spirit Airlines recently announced they will charge $45 for a carry-on bag if you pay at the gate and $30 if you pay before you arrive at the gate. The exclusive members of Spirit’s Fare Club STILL have to pay as well, but the fee will be ONLY $20 and they get to board to plane first.
According to The American Association for Nude Recreations, travelers don’t even need a carry on bag: “To avoid added baggage stress as you embark upon a vacation, whose purpose is to de-stress and rejuvenate you, plan a Nakation – a vacation to a nudist resort!”
So, perhaps airlines need to be prepared for when the nudist colonies decide to travel. Will the new airline banners say, “No shirt, shoes, no service”?
Irish airline Ryanair announced that they will begin charging to use the toilet. Ryanair spokesman Stephen McNamara said, “By charging for the toilets we are hoping to change passenger behavior so that they use the bathroom before or after the flight.” All I can say is…..good luck on those international flights!
Although Spirit Airlines offers very low fares, how much are you willing to compromise? Free drinks and pay toilets? No drinks and free toilets? No drinks, no food, no toilets and naked people on your flight? They carry no baggage, no pun intended.
