Businesses are constantly coming up with more ways to nickel and dime customers, and many items that used to be gratis now come with a fee.
Many services and amenities that used to be free for airline passengers now come a la carte, depending on the airline including checking a bag, carrying on a bag, onboard snacks, beverages, meals, onboard entertainment, seat selection and more. Even if the fees are small, those charges quickly add up.
