I hate flying for so many reasons but these days it is getting more and more frustrating with all of the added fees and "upgrade" options. You want legroom? You pay more. You want an extra bag? You pay more. You want a decent drink or snack? You pay more.
To me, the airlines are stating to get more and more like the State of New York, just trying to find creative ways to increase revenue by hiding a new tax or fee on everything we need. The new option that may be coming from airlines is a chance to "upgrade" yourself out of the middle seat in coach.
