Delta Adds The "Fee For Not Paying A Fee" Fee

Following in the fee-laden footsteps of US Airways, Delta has added a $5 fee for not paying your baggage fees online in advance.

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Atlanta-based Delta already charges $15 for the first checked bag and $25 for the second checked bag on domestic flights.

But starting Aug. 4, Delta will start charging those who pay for checked bags at airport ticket counters, kiosks and curbs $20 for the first checked bag and $30 for the second checked bag, for tickets purchased July 15 or later.

Can someone think of a way that we can all agree to start charging the airlines our own fees? Sorry, there is a $5 “these snacks suck” fee and a $10 “seat is full of crumbs” fee…
