Everybody Hates Airline Fees…Right?

The conventional wisdom that airline fees are reviled by travelers due to the apparently opprobrious conduct of airlines might actually be erroneous, according to an article in the New York Times by Joe Sharkey. Rather, business travelers might possibly see ancillary fees as a way to customize a trip to their needs.

It is noted in the article that “most travel managers have no problem with paying for” ancillary fees for extra products and services such as an aisle seat with extra legroom — “they would just like to have a better idea of what it actually costs, in advance.”

Is the only ancillary fee about which leisure travelers care is baggage fees, as the article possibly implies?
