Airlines Charging You More This Summer

May 25th, 2010 by admin

A new report by USA Today and Farecompare.com shows major airlines have introduced “peak travel day” charges for most days during Summer 2010.

The surcharge ranges from $10 to $30 for each one way trip depending on the day of the week. The report found that airlines are charging passengers each day between June 10th and August 22nd except for July 4th – one of the slowest travel days of the year.

Airlines adopting the surcharge include American, Delta, Continental, United and US Airways.

According to the report, passengers will be charged $10 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, $20 on Thursdays through Saturdays, and $30 on Sundays. Therefore, it could cost a family of four up to $240 extra for a round trip flight.
