Major Airlines Add Ancillary Fees in 2011

Due to such factors as increasing prices for crude oil, ancillary fees such as peak travel, round-trip and fuel surcharges are expected to either appear or increase in 2011 and could result in the most profitable year for airlines in greater than a decade, according to a news story by WSOC-TV in Charlotte.

The travel industry is especially vulnerable to volatile crude oil prices, which are only expected to increase further in the foreseeable future.
