The debate over the U.S. Transportation Department’s new raft of regulations governing how airlines sell their tickets took a turn for the zany when Spirit Airlines imposed an “unintended consequences” fee of $ 2 per one-way trip per passenger.
Spirit said the fee was necessary to cover the costs that airlines will incur by adhering to a new rule requiring airlines to hold fares for 24 hours after booking without penalty.
