Airlines finding new ways to rip off passengers

ABC - Airlines are adding on fees for almost everything, including amenities that were once complimentary. So just how much is that flight you thought you paid for already really going to cost you? By the end of your trip, you could spend hundreds more than you expected to.

Delta and other airlines are now charging around $6 to watch an in-flight movie. Spirit Airways charges $3 for a bottle of water. Allegiant Air charges between $4.99 and $24.99 for passengers to choose their own seat and between $17 and $25 for a pillow and a blanket. And just last month, Allegiant announced it will start charging between $10 and $30 for passengers to have the privilege of storing carry-on bags in the overhead compartments.
