Surcharges on Holiday Travel

First it was a gasoline charge. Then checked baggage fees. Now its a charge for… the date??

Yep. Beginning next year, the big carriers:  Delta Air Lines, American, and United will raise prices on the busiest travel days. Expect fees as high as $30 each way. This isn’t the first time its been done. Last year  the Big Three charged $50 one-way on a few flights the day after the Super Bowl. As of right now, United & Delta are already charging extra (sometimes $30) for a few select fights for the 2009 weekend following Turkey Day and New Years. So if you are flying this holiday season… enjoy it. It might be your last surcharge-free-ride.
