So you're telling me, after airlines charged $50 for a carry-on, $50 to choose a seat I've already paid for, and $15 for a bag of Lay's, they're suddenly in financial need?

Remember when there were no bag fees? Then fuel prices skyrocketed and charging for bags became normal. Then fuel prices dropped but bag prices remained because it made them money. Sorry, I don’t feel too bad for them.
