Luggage Overboard



When traveling make sure you call the airlines or go online to check to see if there is a charge for luggage.  

Many people  bought new luggage to fit the requirements of the airlines of on board carry on and check-in luggage.

I was surprise when I check-in with Spirit Airlines with their size luggage requirements.

The small luggage on wheelsluggageonwheels so many travelers bought to not be subject to heavy or large luggage is now too large.     

Although my bag was below the 40 lbs weight requirement (33 lbs to be exact) I was still told my bag was too big and I had to check it in and pay $55 charge.

Each airline is different so call or check online before traveling so you won’t be surprise at the check-in.

(Spirit Airlines) Checked bags: Maximum of 62 linear inches (length + width + height; 158 cm) including handles and wheels and maximum of 40 pounds in weight (18.1 kg). Any bag that exceeds these dimensions or weight limit is considered oversized/overweight and has a corresponding charge. Unfortunately, we cannot accept bags that weigh more than 99 pounds (45 kg) or that measure more than 80 linear inches (203 cm) in overall dimensions.

The airline states to keep prices low for everyone, we charge for carry-ons and checked bags. We charge more for checked bags over 40 lbs. This is because the added weight requires more gas for the plane. One personal item that fits in the smaller sizer box (like a small backpack) is included with your ticket. Another personal item or anything larger like a standard carry-on or checked bag will need to be paid for.
