The Stupidest Fees of 2010

2010: The Year of Ridiculous Fees

This year may go down as one of the worst for dumb fees. From making travelers pay for carry-on bags or coercing them to pony up $39 for a seat in coach, domestic airlines soared above and beyond consumers’ expectations of just how far they’d go to hike up fees. While this year wasn’t so hot for ATM fees or so-called "free" checking either, most of the fees listed here are airline-related. It doesn't get more egregious than paying for peanuts.
