"It's one of the highest hidden in the industry," said George Hobica, founder of watchdog Airfare. It notes that the Spirit of the lists of generic-sounding "passenger usage fee" along with the taxes imposed by the government and fees. "It's very sincere. It looks like an inevitable cost."

The passenger usage fee is charged to anyone who buys tickets online, which is the bulk of sales of the Spirit. The fee can be avoided by buying a ticket at the airport. Nor is loaded on flights out of Colombia or Panama.

The only U.S. airline another charge such a fee is all company travel agent. Passengers face a $ 17 fee to book a round trip ticket.

Quota of spirit could be 40 percent or more of the total price of a ticket. For example, a fee of $ 14 each way between Detroit and New York, including $ 21. 40 in federal taxes and security fees and $ 33.98 usage fee.

To get more cheap flights. Travel in the early hours to get more competitive prices. Flights, like other forms of transport, have peak periods and late morning and afternoon flights will often be more expensive than those which depart late at night or early in the morning.
