Airlines hike up fees for last minute bookings
A new wave of fare hikes began when U.S. Airways increased its round-trip fares up to $10 on many routes.
United, Delta and Continental quickly followed with fare hikes of their own.
The increases apply only to last minute bookings, not advance reservations.
It is the sixth time we've seen fare hikes this year.
The average domestic flight is now running about $247 -- 10 percent higher than last year.
