Delta Airlines Charges $50 for Standby - Ouch Ouch Ouch!

Delta Airlines Inc. (NYSE DAL) is turning every travel option into a revenue generating opportunity. I just learned at the check in kiosk that there is a $50 fee for standby on Delta. On the plus side for Delta, it means less people going standby and less hassle for gate agents. It also means an extra $50 per ticket change fee! On the minus side, it means fewer full planes. I don't know what the impact will be, but I do think that travelers like me are somewhat unhappy at having to pay $50 to fly standby. That sucks. They also started charging an extra $5 each way on one way tickets and $10 for roundtrip. Ever since they went public in April, Delta has become seriously serious (lol!) about making some serious money at the expense of travelers like me!
