Gov't wants to know all the fees airlines charging http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_AIRLINES_FEES?SITE=DCTMS&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT WASHINGTON (AP) -- Airlines would have to report the fees they charge passengers and give more useful statistics about lost or damaged luggage and mishandled wheelchairs, under a Transportation Department rule proposed Friday. Making airlines report more information about the amount and types of fees will make the total cost of flights more clear, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said. "In an era of rising fees, passengers deserve better information about how airlines are performing," he said in a statement. Airlines received $3.4 billion from baggage fees and $2.3 billion from reservation change fees in 2010. There is no federal excise tax on those fees, although they are counted when calculating income taxes.
