What else can the airlines charge us for? That’s the question asked by St.
Petersburg (Fla.) Times travel columnist Steve Heuttel, who writes that
“hardly a month goes by without a traditional airline introducing a new charge
for something you used to get free.”
American, United, Northwest and Alaska Airlines are all charging $2 for curbside check-in at some airports.
I'll say it again: It's time to just charge a reasonable ticket price and get away from all these add-on fees. I believe travelers want to know what it's going to cost to travel, rather than be lured in by a low-price ticket and then get hit with the add-on fees. But, hey -- that's just me.
