(Las Vegas, NV)  —  The head of Allegiant Airlines is defending his company’s decision to charge a $35 carry-on bag fee.  In a letter to New York Senator Charles Schumer, Allegiant CEO Maurice Gallagher says the fee allows passengers “to pay the lowest price for air travel without being misled.”  Schumer wants airlines to include bag fees in the listed price of a ticket.  Las Vegas-based Allegiant imposed the new fee last week.
