GateGuru's 8 Most Annoying Airline Fees
We love air travel. The planes. The airports. Heck even the airport food. However, these days one thing drives us nuts about air travel. This “thing” is that over the past 5 years, it seems as if we have come to pay more in airline ancillary fees than for the ticket itself. It has gotten so bad that we can’t remember the last time we booked a ticket without paying a “fee” of some sort. While we understand the need for fees (after all, that is the only way the airlines actually make a profit), the rate at which airlines have expanded the fees is simply alarming -- ancillary fees grew from $13.5 billion to $22.1 billion over the past 3 years alone!
With that said, we simply couldn’t go any longer without expressing our frustration with some of the more annoying fees the airlines hit us with nowadays.
Check out GateGuru's list of the most annoying fees that airlines charge to travelers -- starting off with everyone’s favorite, baggage fees.
