The era of passenger fees — charges for checked bags, seat upgrades and onboard food — began to take hold in the U.S. when airlines tried to offset their losses from surging fuel prices in 2008. Now, with Europe in the grip of the longest recession in decades, the trend of charging passengers for such extras is taking off with the full-service airlines across the pond. Taken together, 53 of the world's major airlines collected $27.1 billion in passenger fees and other charges in 2012, up 19% compared with $22.6 billion raised in 2011 by 50 airlines, according to a new report by IdeaWorks, a Shorewood, Wis., airline consulting firm. A bigger share of those fees are coming from major European airlines, which have struggled with Europe's economic slump and stiff competition from low-cost airlines that have reaped hefty revenues from passenger fees for years.
