I've been flying NWA a lot recently and noticed something else: Often they won't let you select a seat at all. It makes you think, "Hey, this flight must be full! If I don't buy one of those upgraded seats, I won't get on at all!" But sure enough, when you get to the airport, there are plenty of seats.

Ah .....Would you like FRIES with that ?

I agree this seems backhanded. Fact is, however, that if the US consumer wants a national transportation system (as opposed to a regional transport system comprised of LCC's)and wants to regulate it, too, then ticket prices need to go up by about 50%. Honestly, though it seems like they're TRYING to intimidate their customers, they're just trying to stay in business. Many won't.

Northwest/ Delta is just scamming us.on the exact same flight. Cheaper to book flights with lay over at you destination than it is to do a one-way flight then just check in to the first flight so you baggage doesn't go on to final destination or tell them you need to accesses you baggage at to drop off or if you only caring a hand bag then pay the $25 and not worry about it. I only had a hand bag so I just walked off the plane and walked to my car that was in LAX last week cost me 3 times less.only $75.00 total and for the exact same flight same flight that would have cost me $520.00
here's a prime ex-sample of trying to stay in business with Delta 2521 flight. Why triple charge when you can do flat rates. if a flight cost $89 to the second destination and $230 for the same flight hello charge everybody $110.00plus tax and fees not this much for this person and that for this that's why most are trying to cheat the system. comes down to customer service. notice that for the cheaper flight you tax is twice than the shorter flight that's the docking fee.
