Airport, airline, fees

Last month, a Spanish judge ruled that Ryanair, the notorious penny-pinching airline, couldn't legally charge travellers up to $50 to print their boarding passes for them.

In Ryanair's defence, the attempt wasn't totally evil — they say they wanted to charge so much in order to encourage passengers to print passes at home, thus leading to lower costs for the airline and therefore lower fares for customers — but, come on. Good intent or not, the boarding pass fee is just the latest in a long line of airline charges designed to make travellers scream. In honour of Ryanair's preposterous idea, MSN runs down some of the worst, most maddening airline fees the world has ever seen.
