    Ultra-low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines announced plans to offer onboard wireless internet on all of its planes by next summer — a first for the carrier known for its low fares and fees for its a la carte services.

    Spirit may also be launching a first among U.S. airlines by planning to charge a fee for the Wi-Fi service based on the popularity of a route.

    "We are testing this out," said Stephen Schuler, a Spirit spokesman. "We want to see what people want."

    The move may not come as a surprise to Spirit passengers who already pay a bag fee that varies based on when they pay and on the route they fly.
