Ryanair Charges for Toilets
Colbert Report Full Episodes Political Humor Fox News

This clip from The Colbert Report I came across on one of my favorite travel blogs, Upgrade: Travel Better, brings up an interesting point besides being pretty funny. It seems that many of the airlines are in the midst of a feeding frenzy, charging for things like carry-on luggage and going to the toilet. I think most of us would rather see fares go up a bit and include some basic amenities (is carry on luggage a luxury now?)

I’d like to hear your opinion on airline fees – are they justified additions in a tough economy or simply an underhanded opportunity to increase profits from travelers?

Leave your thoughts in the comments below in addition to whether or not any of these fees will actually change your travel habits.
