Spirit to charge $100 a bag for overhead storage

BLADE STAFF AND NEWS SERVICES

NEW YORK -- Putting a bag in the overhead bin will soon cost some Spirit Airlines passengers $100. That's more than they may have paid for their tickets.

The Miramar, Fla., airline currently charges $45 for a carry-on bag. As of Nov. 6, customers will pay $100. Any bag that needs to fit in the overhead bin is considered a carry-on. A small bag that fits under the seat is free.
