Free award tickets are no long free

At least they aren't on USAirways or Delta.

If you book your award travel with USAirways on line, there is a $5.00 fee. What for I have no idea. No human other than me is involved.

Now Delta has added a fuel surcharge to award tickets. For award tickets with itineraries originating in the U.S. and Canada, effective August 15, 2008:

*$25 for Award Travel between the 50 states and Canada
*$50 for Award Travel between the 50 states/Canada and all international destinations

I'm sure other airlines won't be far behind and will soon be adding their own fuel surcharges.
