NEW YORK — Spirit Airlines is considering tying its bag and seat-assignment fees to demand. On a peak travel day, for instance, fees could be higher. But during slow times, passengers might catch a break. The changes wouldn’t happen for months.
Spirit did not say how much higher, or lower, the fees might be. Ben Baldanza, chief executive officer, says the changes are something Spirit executives have not yet agreed to.
United Airlines and Delta Air Lines price some seats with extra legroom at different levels based on demand. No airline does that with luggage fees.
