Airlines can have delay after delay and change in schedule after change in schedule. But, when passengers have to make changes (often because of an airline’s changes), they get slapped with hefty change fees and a change in airfare. It is not just. Airlines should bear some burden of their random schedule changes and cancellations.
As annoying as it can be to shell out extra money on top of the ticket price, it makes sense that airlines charge for services not everyone needs. But, the most recent change fee increase simply makes no sense and not justifiable.
