I booked a ticket on Spirit Airlines DFW to Laguardia for November 16th 2011. At the time of booking I was not informed of any unusual charges. However when I went to check in I was shocked to be hit with the following unexpected and ridiculous charges which are not a part of any other airline that I know of:

$40 for first check-in (more than double that of most airlines) Additional $33 for my carry-on (!!!!!!) $14 seat charge (????!!! so am I supposed to ride on the wing? Sit on the floor?)

Any airline that is going to charge additional for things that are universally included in the fare world over - such as a standard carry-on bag or sitting in an economy-class seat - ought to make these charges known up front and not spring them on us at the time of check-in!

Needless to say I will NEVER fly Spirit airline again and I hope others will be outraged as I at their failure to disclose these charges at the time of purchasing the ticket.
