More Airlines Add $10 Travel Surcharge To More Holidays

Since consumers didn’t whine too much about the addition of $10 “just because” fees airlines imposed on busy travel days, they’ve added fees on more days. Goody for us!

Companies participating in this exciting new program include Delta, US Airways, American, Northwest, Continental, United, and AirTran. According to WalletPop, here’s the expanded list, including exciting new holidays such as Easter, Memorial Day, and apparently Spring Break.

  • Nov. 29
  • Nov. 30
  • Dec. 19
  • Dec. 26
  • Dec. 27
  • Jan. 2, 2010
  • Jan. 3
  • March 14
  • March 20
  • March 21
  • April 11
  • May 28

If you’ve already booked your tickets, the fee won’t be added after the fact. But watch out when making holiday travel plans.
