I just got an email giving me a heads up for the new prices all the airlines are now charging. Not for the plane ticket itself but for other things that used to be free.
Things like checking on luggage. Not just your 2nd or 3rd piece of luggage but for ALL luggage now. Even one bag. Also, drinks, snacks and if you want to pick where you sit on the plane, will now cost you extra.
I know the airlines are doing what they can to cut costs but come on! Rather then letting us know they are raising the cost of the tickets they are now hiding the fees and nickle and dimeing us to death.
First it was doing away with your meal and charging to watch the movie. Then charging for checking in more then one piece of luggage.
But now, they won't even give you a 1/2 of a can of coke any more. How many people really don't fly with luggage? I always thought that cost was added into the ticket.
Also, does it really cost them anything to let you pick where you sit? I think it's getting pretty sad.
What's next? Oh I know, they will charge you for going to the bathroom.
So much for flying the friendly skies!
