And another budget airline goes a little less budget: Allegiant Air is following in the legally messy footsteps of Spirit Airlines and will become the second U.S.-based carrier charging for carry-on bags, effective for all new reservations made from Wednesday, April 4 on. As with Spirit’s guidelines, you’ll still be allowed a free personal item, such as a purse or a laptop, which must fit under the seat in front of you. Also like Spirit, paying for your carry-on in advance can save you money. If you pay the carry-on fee at the airport, it’ll cost you $35, the same as the checked luggage charge. The prepaid fees for a carry-on range from $10-$30, which is slightly lower than the $14.99-$34.99 for prepaid checked luggage. The fees vary by airport, but you can check what you’ll be paying here.

Each aircraft boasts mood lighting, personal entertainment, WiFi, and comfy leather seats. The latest sale includes short haul flights like San Francisco to San Diego from $39, or longer jaunts like Los Angeles to New York from just $109. Travel is valid from December 3 through May 23 (holiday blackout dates apply), but you must book by December 8.
