I am getting so sick and tired of the Federal government digging its hands into every damn thing it touches. Whether or not an airline charges for a carry-on bag is none of the government's business. They do not have a right to tell an airline what they can and can't charge people for. If you don't want to pay $45 to for your carry-on bag, then don't fly Spirit airlines. See how simple that is? When Spirit starts losing customers they'll be forced to do away with the fee. The bottom line is if Spirit is intent on getting this money, they'll simply just raise ticket prices and get it anyway. We don't need the government to be involved. This is another occurrence of them attempting to over reach their Constitutional limitations.
