Just In Time For The Holidays, Two Airlines Raise Fees

TAMPA (CBS Tampa) – It’s already tough enough flying during the Holiday Season. Now two discount airlines are ramping up the aggravation factor by raising travel surcharges, reports Time Magazine.

Florida-based Spirit Airlines aroused passenger ire by adding an extra fee to its baggage fee for checked luggage on flights during the holidays. It’s bringing that fee back.

And it’s not alone. This year, Frontier Airlines is following suit, hiking checked and carry-on baggage fees by an extra $5 to $10 for flights scheduled from Thanksgiving week to just after New Year’s Day.

Frontier’s surcharge isn’t confined to the holidays, the fees will also be imposed for all but a few weeks until the end of next Summer.
