I just bought some new luggage online and the total size ends up being 66”-we are flying Spirit and they say you have to pay extra if it’s more than 62” total. Anyone know how strict they are for checked in luggage size?!
Spirit will nickel & dime you every chance they get. Be prepare to pay the fee. Spirit looks like a bargain on paper, but unless you are walking on the plane with nothing more than what you can carry in your pockets they’ll find a way to tack on a fee.
Maybe I’m biased as I tried them twice and actually paid as much as going with a “name brand” airline & had terrible experiences. Plus, they buy planes used from other airlines who take them out of service and don’t invest much into the interiors.
I’ve never had my checked luggage measured by them, but mine has also been within the dimensions. The 40lb weight limit is strict. I have seen them question the size of carry on bags, though, so there’s a definite chance they could check. Depends if you want to risk it and possibly pay the extra fee once you’re at the airport (which I imagine is more $$$ than doing it in advance).
Wow! I didn’t know that low cost airlines reduce the weight limit by 10 lbs
I knew the weight limit would be enforced and we only planned to have personal items not actual carry ons. I think if we took the wheels off it would be within the size restraints so I’m thinking we chance it and then if they check take the wheels off!
