I booked an international flight with with CheapoAir, was shown the final price of the tickets and then on the last page, they sneaked in the seat assignment fee of $27.97 in the total. They hide that fee under "Taxes, Surcharges and Other Charges inclusive of Seat Assignement Fee". This may not be illegal but this surely isn't being clear and upfront.
The most frustrating part is that you can choose your seats for FREE from airlines' website if you give them your booking confirmation number. Why the *** do that I need to pay $27.97 for nothing!!! This is a total rip off!
Do yourself a favor. Next time, whenever you book a ticket, check if you are charged for seat assignment and go ahead only if you are not.
