Did your mother ever tell you, "Just because everybody's doing it doesn't make it right" ? Some of us don't mind paying "a la carte" fees for airline services and amenities that were once included in the fare. But best I can tell, many of my readers do mind.
In the last few days, several articles have noted that there's a new fee at United and US Airways for paying the first-checked-bag fee at the airport instead of online beforehand. Actually, that information was posted here twice, April 23 and May 18.
You can see what I posted May 18 by looking at the bottom of the first page of the blog, choosing page 6 and looking at the last item. That post received an usually high nine comments from those who don't like the fees.
