Who says that bloggers just talk and never get anything done?

Christopher Elliott noted on July 16 that Spirit Airlines had begun charging a $5 per passenger each way "Web convenience" fee for booking tickets through its website.

The blog Upgrade: Travel Better jumped on the case, deriding the fee. Consumerist followed suit on Monday.

And soon thereafter Spirit dropped the fee from its contract of carriage.

Kudos to all.
