According to an article in yesterday's New York Times, Spirit Airlines will begin charging as much as $30 each way for carry-on bags that are too big to fit under the seat.

I think it's ridiculous. How can they truly justify that? Does that mean that I would have to pay double or more because I'm overweight? I fit in 1 seat, but I weigh more than I should, so maybe airline tickets should be sold based on passenger weight instead of per seat? Spirit Airlines is one I'll avoid!
