Airline booking fees

Jump to last reply

We are traveling to London next spring, booked our flights on British Airways. After paying, found out it will cost us an additional $84 per person to confirm our seats now! Several of their competitors to not do this. Contacted the airline to no avail.

Although not a frequent flyer, I am also not a novice. I do alot of research before finalizing reservations. So I was taken aback at this process and significant extra charge. In polling friends, most are also not aware of this practice.

So I just want other travelers to be aware of this, so know to (possibly) include this extra fee in their fare estimates.
