Airlines 'playing chicken' with passengers, charging 'you-get-to-sit-with-your-kid' fee

The headline is kind of shitty, because usually when you hear “kids” and “airlines” in the same sentence its almost always about the annoyance factor. Or maybe that’s my own personal bias. But this article isn’t just about kids; it’s about the fact that airlines are looking to charge for “premium seating” when multiple passengers want to sit together, regardless of the fact that one of those passengers might be your child.

I guess it gets people to click the link, though. It worked on me.
