That Really Grinds My Gears...Bag fees?!

For some odd reason, both Continental and US Airways have decided to add on additional bag fees. As if traveling wasn't already a hassle with fees including travel to airport, snacks on board, movie fees, etc. What if I buy souvenirs during my trip?

According to a Bloomberg article online: US Airways also increased its fee by $5 to check bags on domestic flights, to $20 for the first piece of luggage and $30 for the second. Passengers who wait to pay the fee at the airport instead of online beforehand will be charged $25 and $35, the Tempe, Arizona-based airline said in a statement.

Thank god for SouthWest Air though, they have absolutely NO BAG FEES on any flight. They also allow you to sit anywhere you want.
