Officially a trend: Booking fees kicked to curb for spring

Fares from Washington DC, District of Columbia:

    Last month, we saw Expedia and Travelocity drop booking fees for reservations made through May 31. And now? Both Cheaptickets and Orbitz say they too will scrap the booking fees for domestic travel through May 31. So while fees for international tix will remain at $10 a pop, those $7 domestic booking fees are suspended for spring. Is it enough to lure back recession-weary travelers? Stay tuned!
