    With the new rules, airfares will be higher and using frequent flyer miles will cost you even more.

      Hopefully not. Airline travel is already high cost.

    The fees to fly with American right now are outrageous. Pay for your flight, pay for an aisle seat, pay for your luggage, etc. At least now we'll know how much they're ripping us off.

      That rule they made about paying for luggage is a dumb one imo.

      I rarely fly, but I refuse to pay to bring the things you need for a trip (luggage)

      I'd rather ride the Amtrak Big Grin
