It does make you wonder if the airlines will be charging for you to get back your shoes, belt and laptop after getting strip searched - after getting full body scanned and walking through the metal detector. Women wonder if the airlines will start charging for the weight of their earrings. People at the check-in are wondering if now the airlines will require each passenger to carry volcano insurance.
They are charging for a bottle of water, charging for a bag of peanuts, charging toilet fees and only one toilet visit per flight (try telling that one to a four year old with a tiny bladder), charging for getting cussed out by surly airline attendants (OK, maybe not charging for that just yet but give it time for some accountant to catch wind of this post and say, "Wow! What a great idea! Why didn't I think of that?) and get charged for wearing four layers of clothes to avoid extra baggage fees... :) The list could go on and on with the truly weird and the ridiculous.
