    The federal government is examining two separate incidents in which passenger seats came loose midflight on American Airlines planes in the last three days.

    Arubalisa, That's clearly what happened to these AA planes!

    MIRAMAR, Fla. (AP) - Spirit Airlines Inc. will begin charging passengers $100 for carry-on bags unless they pay a smaller fee before getting to the airport.
    The higher fee starts Nov. 6 and applies to customers who pay the carry-on fee at the boarding gate. The airline announced in May that the $100 fee was coming.
    Spirit touts low fares but makes up some of the difference with fees that account for 40 percent of its revenue. The average customer pays more than $100 per round trip in fees.
    For baggage — whether checked or carried on board — Spirit has an unusual tiered system that charges passengers more the longer they wait.
    Passengers who are members of Spirit's $9 Fare Club will be charged $25 for a carry-on bag. Other passengers who pay the fee online will be charged $35 online, $40 over the phone, $50 at the airport ticket counter, and $100 if they get all the way to the gate before declaring their carry-on.
    Spirit said Monday that its fees pass the cost of handling bags to passengers who bring them rather than raising prices for all customers.

    Found this on MSN just now..... What's next?.... Fly free with a charge for each item of clothing you wear... probably with a minimum of 5 items!
    When your ticket prices start at $9, being charged $25 or $35 for a bag isn't that bad. It's also cheaper to check a bag than to carry on a large carry on bag. Not having 150-200 people with multiple large carry on bags speeds up passenger boarding a deplaning. Spirit doesn't hide anything, they let you decide exactly what options you want to pay for. Some people like that model and choose to fly them, some don't.

    Agreed.... however, thought some would enjoy this in light of the previous postings on this thread.
