What’s this settlement about?
In 2017, some people sued Spirit Airlines because they said Spirit broke a promise. These people (the plaintiffs) bought a plane ticket from Spirit through a website, and they thought they could bring a bag on the plane without paying more money. But then Spirit made them pay extra for the bag. The people said Spirit didn’t keep their promise. But Spirit Airlines says they did nothing wrong.
Who is eligible for a refund?
If you booked a Spirit Airlines flight through Expedia, Kiwi, CheapOair, CheapTickets, Travelocity, or Bookit, between August 31, 2011, and May 3, 2017, paid a carry-on bag fee, and that flight was your first flight on Spirit after August 1, 2010, you may be eligible to receive a cash payment from the settlement.
Is a receipt required?
Proof of purchase is not required. However, if you have receipts, you may be able to claim more.
How much will I get back?
Spirit Airlines has agreed to pay up to $8.25 million to settle a lawsuit. If the settlement is approved, claimants who are eligible will be reimbursed up to 75% of the carry-on bag fee they paid for their first Spirit flight within a specific time frame. The percentage of the fee paid that you can receive back depends on the amount approved for attorneys’ fees, reimbursement of expenses, and service awards, as well as the number of valid claims submitted. If approved by the Court, Spirit will pay up to $8.25 million (the “Settlement Fund”) to settle this lawsuit. Claimants who submit a valid Claim Form will receive up to 75% of the carry-on bag fee paid for their first Spirit flight during the relevant period. The actual percentage of the fee paid that will be reimbursed depends on the amount of Court-approved payments for attorneys’ fees and reimbursement of expenses and service awards to the named plaintiffs, as well as the number of timely and valid claims submitted.

Understanding Class Action Lawsuits: What You Need to Know
A class action lawsuit involves multiple plaintiffs, meaning that more than one person is represented by the case. These plaintiffs file the lawsuit on behalf of others who were affected but are not directly involved in the case. For example, if you purchased a product that was later involved in a class action lawsuit, you may be eligible for compensation. However, each case is unique, and the eligibility criteria varies. It is important to note that class action lawsuits may require evidence that you are part of the affected group. This could include proof of purchase or other forms of documentation. In some cases, no evidence is required, but filing a claim under false pretenses is illegal. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that you meet the eligibility requirements before filing a claim.
