    Spirit Airlines has a unique reputation in the airline industry. It has become the poster child for fees.
    Carry-on fees, checked baggage fees, boarding pass fees. advanced seat assignment fees, legroom fees, round trip fees—you name it, and Spirit was probably the first airline to charge separately for it.

    You would think that the budget brand would shy away from its reputation. Fees have long been one of the hated 'features' of airline travel since declining from the glory days of Pan Am.
    But Spirit loves its reputation. In fact, it's proud of it, according to USA Today.

    It's also the poster child of my no-fly list (US edition).
