Passengers on Miramar-based Spirit Airlines will soon be paying $100 dollars to put a bag in the overhead bins.

The new carry-on charges go into effect on Nov. 6, according to the airline's website.

The price hike will effect customers who purchase the carry-on option at the gate. The current price is $45.

Purchasing carry-ons online will go from $30 to $35. Several other bag option purchases will increase between $5 and $10, while some international baggage fees will actually be reduced.

The budget airline says their baggage fees helps keep base fares low for its customers.

"We empower customers to save money on air travel by offering ultra low base fares with a range of optional services for a fee, allowing customers the freedom to choose only the extras they value," the company's website said.
