Dunno if it's just coincidence, but when I clicked that link, my laptop froze and Norton blocked an intrusion attempt. Meh.

I wonder how any of this is legal.

The price of food on a menu should include everything that is expected.
What good is ordering fish and chips if no one is going to serve it to you.

When you pay for a meal at a resturant you naturally expect it to be served to you....not to have to pay extra for service.

Same with airlines charging fuel surcharges....what good is a plane with no fuel?
Optional extras is fair enough but not items that are essential to the initial purchase.

Just tell me how much the flight is, or how much the food is FFS.
