when flying used to actually be a treat? you did not have to pay to check your baggage. steams booze was free and you even got a hot meal. well, as we all know, those days are long gone and analysts say don't expect them to return anytime soon. we all know the airline industry started hemorrhaging money after the events of september 11th, and then when fuel prices hit an all-time high a few years later. major carriers were forced to start charging extra fees just to record a profit. though in turn, well, passenger satisfaction is way dun. in fact, the number of complaints the u.s. department of transportation up about 35%. frankly, i think the profits all came from charging of nickel and time fees to $2 for the beer on the plane and $25 to bring a bag on the plane and check in. >> i really don't think that it's a good idea to have the baggage fees.
7:16 pm
