Spirit Airlines to Charge for Printed Boarding Passes

Joe Raedle/Getty Images(MIRAMAR, Fla.) -- Spirit Airlines was the first to charge customers for carry-on bags, and now the airline plans to charge another fee that travelers are sure to not like.

The airline on Tuesday said it will charge $5 to have one of its ticket agents print a boarding pass. The fee can be bypassed by checking in online and printing a boarding pass at home.

The airline says most customers check in online and print at home anyway, and the fee helps keep airfares low.
