Jet Blue Ad Pokes Fun At Spirit Airlines

Get ready, Spirit Airlines is going to charge you for carry on luggage starting in August.  But don't worry, Jet Blue's ad department has a suggestion for you:  Invest in their "Extrago Sherpa Shirt"  if you plan on traveling with Spirit anytime soon.
Included in a press release announcing a fare sale, Spirit Airlines also announced today that they are now charging for carry-on luggage for travel effective August 1.  The airline justifies the new fees as an attempt to, “improve inflight safety and efficiency by speeding up the boarding and deplaning process.”

In case you were wondering, JetBlue will continue to offer a free first checked bag, not to mention that you can bring your Mickey Mouse ears, your magazine collection, your favorite wrinkle-free slacks, and your lunch onboard, and enjoy free use of the overhead bins and more legroom than any other airline in its class.

But for those times when you can’t travel on JetBlue, we recommend you check out our expertly-crafted Extrago Sherpa Shirt*, special outerwear that we designed to hold “an entire trip’s worth of necessities, including the money you’ll save by not checking or carrying on your bag.”

Sadly, the item is not actually available for sale.  I would love one in pink.

For my long overseas travels, I use to wear jumper pants and a photograph vest, bringing a wooping 23 pockets add-on to my carry-on luggage... Not very fashionable, but efficient, after the security ordeal os course.

Actually, that 'Sherpa Shirt' brings out an idea which might somewhat counter or circumvent the dollar skinning carry-on charge by Spirit Air - how about a long coat covered inside and out with large pockets stuffed with all the good stuff I would have otherwise put in my "overhead" bag?
