Most annoying airline fees

Forbes has come out with its list of most annoying airline fees--fuel surcharges and fees for better seats are just the beginning. And, it warns, we can expect to see more coming in the future. Oh good, let's just make flying even more irritating than it already is. Sorry to be cranky about it, but I can't seem to help myself.

One positive experience I can say I've had was on my recent American flight from San Juan to Boston. The Asian chicken wrap may have cost $6, but it was delicious; way better than your normal airline free fare used to be.

(Thanks to Stuff from Patti Shock for the pointer.)

Update: This is interesting--Kayak.com is factoring the fees into the prices it quotes, while other travel sites are just providing a chart or not even dealing with it (see this Boston Globe article for more).
