US Airways Sneaks in Hidden Fees for Online Bookings

Fares from Washington DC:

    Well this is a real fine how-do-you-do. We learned from CrankyFlier.com that US Airways has tacked on an extra $5 fee to all bookings made on their site.

    Here's what we know. Travelocity charges about $6 to $7 for a booking. So we checked a flight from Boston to Phoenix and found a fare of $1,332 on Travelocity and $1,330 on US Airways.com. Clearly, there should be more than just a $2 difference. And we know Travelocity hasn't budged in our favor here, so....
