LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- Spirit Airlines is raising the price for some carry-on bags to as much as $100.
Right now, the airline charges $45 for those big carry-on bags that must go in the overhead luggage compartment.
That price is going up to $100 per bag in November.
Smaller bags like purses and briefcases thah fit under the seat are still free.
Spirit says passengers can save on fees by checking bigger bags before they board.
According to Spirit's website, checking a bag costs $28 for the first bag.
