When this fee debuted, we called it "not the stupidest fee ever, but close." So, having said that, it should surprise no one that American's Your Choice collection of perks takes the cake as the worst airline fee of the year
. Starting at $19 for short flights and going up from there, Your Choice includes priority boarding, a seat toward the front of coach, and … that's it. Really, that's it. You get to sit on the plane the longest, exit a little sooner than people toward the back, and get better access to overheads (the only meaningful benefit). $19 or more for that? Thanks, but no thanks.
