Fees are in the air

It must be spring—CNN already is predicting a bumper crop of airline fees this summer. And flights will be packed, just to make it even more fun. Among the fees you can expect:


• Fees for reserving premium seats, like exit aisles, and for changing your seat assignment

• Per-bag charges for luggage

• Fuel surcharges (British Air has already jumped on this one, according to the article)

• A fee to fly standby


At this rate, we may just see those standing seats become a reality, or even a potty surcharge.
