Remember when airline ticket prices didn’t have added fees for baggage, food, drinks, pillows, blankets or anything else that made air travel not entirely suck? Remember when those niceties were just built into the price of your ticket? Yeah? Well then, you’re old.
The award for “Best airline at hiding the true cost of tickets in last-minute, greedy cash-grab fees” goes to: the new American Airlines (same as the old American Airlines evidently). Although, you’re really not getting a break from any of the airlines when you look at this handy, but ultimately just depressing airline fee infographic. Of note is the fact that Southwest Airlines is keeping its fees inline with its overall experience: that is to say, low.
