Two news stories today provide some illumination on the airlines' financial woes and one of the ways the industry is dealing with it. The International Air Transport Association reports that customer demand is stabilizing but airlines remain largely without profits. Read more here.

 The second article reminds us that airline fees to check bags, in particular second bags on international flights, have gone up. It's now $50 for that second bag going on flights to many countries. A link to that story is here.
