And while we're at it...

I think this is going a little too far. I am crossing my fingers that other airlines don't follow suit, but you know how they are--if one says "Jump", the others say "How high?"

US Airways announced today that it's going to start charging a fee to reserve "Choice Seats." You may be saying, "Well, Ashley, the airlines have been doing this for a while now?" Well, not by THIS definition of "Choice Seats."

Basically, any seat in the first several rows of coach that's a window or an aisle seat will incur a fee--starting at $5 per leg. So, if you have connections, expect to pay for your seat for each and every flight.

If you're a member of US Airways' frequent flier program, Dividend Miles Preferred, you can choose (and pay for) your seat at any time after booking. If you're not a member, you can book (and pay for) your seat only after the 24 hour point before your flight.

That is total BS. How could they possibly have determined this was a good idea?
