Airline extra fees: $2 billion in three months
Well, here's the worst part for you: most of it came from checked baggage fees. This annoyance was good for $893 million in the second quarter of 2010, a gain of 16 percent from the second quarter of 2009. Reservation fees were good for $594 million, with ancillary revenue (e.g., frequent flier mileage sales and pet fees) reaching $618 million.
Delta benefited most from the fees that passengers hate most, at $682 million. American Airlines and US Airways were next.
