Flying around the holidays is already more expensive...and could get more so.

Several big airlines have added $10 surcharges for busy days
around the holidays.

Last month airlines added a $10 each-way surcharge for Nov. 29 (the Sunday after Thanksgiving) and Jan. 2 and 3.

Now, FareCompare.com CEO Rick Seaney notes that the same
airlines have added 10 more days: Nov. 30; Dec. 19, 26, and 27;
March 14, 20, 21, 28; April 11; and May 28.

He said the surcharges have been added by Delta Air Lines and
Northwest, American Airlines, United Airlines, Continental Airlines
and US Airways.

Seaney said discounters such as Southwest and JetBlue appear to be avoiding the surcharges.
