How’s this for grating: US Air, one of the major carriers that readily embraced fees for checked luggage, is now charging a $5 fee for paying the checked luggage fee in person. In other words, if you buy your tickets online, you can go ahead and pay the $15 fee for one bag, or $25 fee for two bags. But if you wait and pay it at the airport, you have to pay a $5 fee. So… it’s a fee for paying a fee!
And airlines wonder why people hate them so much!
