Additional Details
According to reports, Spirit currently lists the fee, which ranges between $9 and $17, as "optional" on its site, but allegations have surfaced that this hasn't always been the case. Rather, it was listed as an unavoidable part of the base fare and can be found in itineraries next to the words "passenger usage fee."
