New Carry On Fee

Spirit Airlines announced recently that it would start instituting a $30 fee for carry on bags, with no charge for use of the space under passengers' seats. 
In this New York Times article, Spirit explains that other modes of shipping packages are not free now, so why should it be free to ship a bag in the overhead compartment? Other airlines have declared that they will not follow suit, but with the potential profits these fees could bring to a struggling industry, it is possible that decision will not last.
