LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- Airlines are charging for just about everything these days, and as we get close to the start of the summer travel season, get ready for new fees.
The latest way airlines are looking to make extra money is by charging extra for aisle or window seats.
Most major airlines are starting to tack on a fee of $25 or more each way for the privilege of sitting on the aisle or window.
Alternately, some are setting aside the seats for frequent fliers.
The change promises to make travel particularly difficult for families who want to sit together.
The only choice in some cases may be to pay more for those window or aisle seats.
Booking your travel more than two months in advance can help with seat availability.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the lowest average fares are at: Long Beach, Burbank, Ontario, John Wayne and then LAX.
