U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer is urging airlines to lower the fees for charge for changing flights, which they recently raised. Four major airlines — Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, U.S. Airways and United Airlines — recently increased fees on ticket changes from $150 to $200. Schumer says the additional charge makes it difficult for families on fixed budgets. He says plans can change due to sick children or work demands.
