Today in travel history

On this day -- today, 2010 -- Spirit Airlines announced that they will now start charging up to $30 for carry-ons that do not fit under the seat in front of you.  Damn you, Spirit Airlines.  Now everyone will start copying.   Looks like I'm going to have to start using my backpack again.  Looks like I'll be ruining my clothes again, too.  damn you...

Fewer Bags, More Revenue

Airlines in the United States started charging for luggage in 2005 by instituting a fee for passengers with more than one bag to check. Soon, even the first bag wasn’t free. Now, Spirit Airlines says it will charge as much as $30 each way for carry-on bags that are too big to fit under the seat.
