Airline To Charge Fee For Carry-On Items

Just when you thought airlines had topped out on fees, Allegiant Air comes up with another thing to charge you a fee for- your carry-on items. While Allegiant doesn't fly out of Spokane International Airport (it does service the Tri Cities however and is known to be an extremely affordable airline) rumor has it that other airlines could be following Allegiant's lead with their $35 fee for carry ons. Yes, you can still get your purse or briefcase on, but anything bigger than that and you'll be paying. So that begs the question- is this inflatable co-pilot too large to get on free? The Huffington Post has the story.
