2012: A Fee Odyssey

2012 is barely 4 days old, but we do have a new airline fee to report as Delta did not waste any time in imposing a new $6 fee to help cover a "Carbon Dioxide Emissions" cost imposed by the European Union. Airlines flying into and out of Europe must purchase credits to offset the emissions impact of their aircraft that is in excess of their allowance.Many other airlines are considering their options, but we do predict that many airlines will "match" Delta's move.
