Are you aware of the airline fees that you are paying for? The air travel industry in the United States is rapidly becoming known for collecting baggage and other fees. Delta Airlines is the biggest baggage fee collector of all airlines, and by 2014, it will be the first air service to collect $1 billion in luggage fees. Article source: Delta Baggage Fees.
