    Anyone here on this forum thinks airline fees are out of control? American and Delta have a $200 ticket change fee while United charges up to $150 for unaccompanied minors. JetBlue and Virgin America charge fees for pillows. Then, there are the fees for booking on the phone, fees to select seats. etc

    Yes! I was trying to book a ticket for my Granny on an airline (that rhymes with SmouthMest) and she wanted a ticket that you could change with no fee. She was thinking it would be free like it would used to be. I tried to explain to her that's not how it works anymore. The ticket that could not be changed was $202 one way. The changeable ticket was $550 for the same seat!

    It's gotten even worse. Now the baggage fees are $30 a flight on Delta. Plus I had to pay $15 to choose my seat. Ugh.
