3 situations where more airline fees would make sense


The airlines seem to have a fee for everything these days. But I think they’ve missed the boat on certain charges. For instance, they could levy a fee when someone:

– Listens to music or another audio source so loudly that people can hear it several rows away

– Brings disgusting fast food on the plane that everyone can smell

– Gets up an excessive number of times to retrieve things from their luggage in the overhead bins

What’s so special about these situations? Each one makes the travel experience worse for other passengers. By adding a financial incentive to avoid this behavior, airlines would actually be instituting fees that the vast majority of passengers are happy about. And for the jerks who refuse to change their behavior, maybe the fee revenue they generate could go towards free drinks for everyone else. Considering how stressful flying can be, the average passenger certainly deserves it.
