It Will Cost More to Sit with Your Family and Friends on a Flight

One of the major revenue boosts for airlines in the US is the added fee passengers are paying to reserve window and aisle seats.  This is nice for these passengers, but for those travelling together, such as families, it is becoming increasingly difficult to sit with each other without paying the same fee, especially during the peak of the summer travel season.  With base fares on the rise, this is making it a lot more expensive for families who want to go on vacation.


Khampha Bouaphanh, a photographer from Fort Worth, Texas, said that it gets more ridiculous every year.  In order to reserve three seats together for him, his wife, and his daughter for their trip to Disney World this summer, he had to pay an extra $114 round-trip.  He is hoping that when they check in at the counter, the airline will be able to find them seats together for free.  The airlines say that their gate agents try to help families with children sit together, particularly those flying with small children.
