As reported by Travelmole, Spirit Airlines is again the first to add a fee for the most silly thing. Spirit Airlines has announced it will charge $5 for passengers who ask a counter agent to print out a boarding pass for them at the airport. What next? Will they charge everytime you show them your photo ID during check-in (an eyeball analysis fee?!) In related news, Spirit Airlines (and Allegiant Air) is suing the US Department of Transportation over the DOT's heavy-handed regulation of airlines and travel agencies with regard to the display and disclosure of all ancillary fees during the purchase process. Given Spirit Airlines' heavy-handed issuance of unprecedented fees on carry-on baggage and numerous other things formerly taken for granted by passengers, over the past year or two, it is perhaps unsurprising they would be worried about having to be "up front" about these fees. Meanwhile, passengers have to wonder what exactly does a base ticket cost cover?
