Airlines Adding Additional Fees

CREATED Sep. 30, 2013

NEW YORK (AP) - Would you pay more for a plane ticket if you could have an empty seat next to you?It's among the new options being offered by airlines for additional fees.

Airlines are also renting iPads that are pre-loaded with movies, and they're selling hot first-class meals in coach. And once passengers are on the ground, they can skip baggage claim and have their luggage delivered directly to their home or office.

It's a change from the first generation of new charges, which dinged fliers for services that were once free, like checking a bag.
