Delta raises bag check fees...again!

How's that Delta/Northwest merger working out again? You know, the one that they said would lower costs for travelers?

Welp, now Delta is raising its fees for checked bags. Again.

This story kind of speaks for itself, doesn't it?

Although airlines used the oil industry's price gouging as an excuse to hike fees in 2008, airlines didn't lower their fees when fuel costs dropped.

Methinks it's time for the states to start regulating airline fees (since the federal government has long permitted airlines to do whatever they want).
