Airlines Keep Sneaking Extra Fees To Boost Ticket Prices PDF Print E-mail

According to USA Today, just in time for the holidays, United, Delta and American are offering more favored boarding and luggage deals to passengers willing to pay extra. The airline nickel and diming continue, and could get worse.

The deals are similar to hotel resort fees, where the ads say you pay $99.99 for your room, but it actually costs $150 plus. There should be a special place in the afterlife for airline executives who think up these padded ticket scams. When they finally ride their heavenly flight, they should be squeezed into the last row, middle seat, no recline, next to the overflowing restroom. They should have a crying, soiled diaper baby on one side, and grossly fat flatulent elderly passenger holding a screeching therapy parrot on the other.
