Geez, talk about french fries. US Airways already charges a $15 fee for the first checked bag, but now the airline is tacking on an extra $5 if you don't prepay the $15 when you check-in online for your flight. The new fee means beginning July 9 passengers pay 20 bucks to check your first bag at the airport and $30 for the second. Does everybody check in online nowadays? I don't know that that's the case. (I do. But I fly Southwest and if you don't check in online you have to sit on the wings.) Aren't they in effect penalizing people like my grandmother?
