Spirit Airlines To Tack On Printing Fee
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
And staying in the air, our last word in business is DIY flying.
A pioneer in new fees, Spirit Airlines says it will soon start charging customers if a gate agent has to print out their boarding pass. Starting in November, it will cost you five bucks for that luxury. The airline wants people to print their boarding passes at home, to save money, of course.
If you're rushing out the door or you don't have a printer, you can print out your pass at an airport kiosk. But starting next June, Spirit will charge $1 for that convenience.
