It was only a matter of time: Airline fees have begun replicating at an exponential rate.
Spirit Airlines, which last year started charging passengers $30 to $45 for carry-on bags, has found a new way to extract money from people who want to bring things with them when they fly.

fees for fees....airlines are pointing the gun at our heads ...pay up for this wonderful service...huh!
next thing the airlines will charge consumers is to charge a fee for booking a flight..
I can see a government pushed luxury tax being applied to all who fly. The business will lay it off on the consumers, before you ever see them charge for booking flights.
