Pay $40 to be the first to board? Or $25 for your carry-on bag? These are some of the latest in a slew of fees some airlines are charging to drum up billions in extra revenue.
For technophobe travelers, extra fees abound.
Request a mailed copy of your itinerary from Virgin America, for example, and it will run you $20.
Spirit, meanwhile, currently charges $5 for any boarding pass printed by an airport agent. On April 16, that fee will go up to $10.
In addition to cutting printing and mailing costs for the airlines, the fees are indicative of a growing push toward self service at the airport, Hobica said.
