Airlines started it. Now travelers are being hit with all kinds of new fees in the air, and more fees after they land.
Allegiant Air and Spirit Airlines charge for carry-ons and checked bags. Spirit hits you for $5 if you ask an agent to print your boarding pass. Virgin America started charging $20 if you call to upgrade, pick a seat or have your itinerary re-sent.
On the ground, guests at a Westin near Los Angeles found their low promotional rate jacked up by a $25-per-night parking fee. Hotels have added fees for early departures, in-room safes, mini-bar restocking, even luggage storage. Bottom line: Have your staff ask about extra fees before they book.
