Penny Pinching Airlines

From Reuters:
Bankrupt Northwest this week unveiled a program called Coach Choice in which the carrier will save some preferred coach seating on the aisle or emergency-exit rows until check-in. Passengers can pay $15 per flight to sit in those seats, which may offer more room.
Actually, I have no problem with this. If I want an aisle seat, $15 more isn't much to pay. I'm certainly willing to pay for the convenience of a meal. The one thing that would bother me is paying for the weight of the luggage. That could add up to a lot.
