Speaking of airports

From the International Herald-Tribune:
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina: Stranded travelers attacked ticketing counters at Buenos Aires' Ezeiza international airport on Saturday, tossing computers in the air and shoving security guards after Aerolineas Argentinas suspended most of its flights there.

For the whole thing, here.
I read on some travel Web site last night that a couple of U.S. air carriers have begun adding a $50 surcharge on domestic round-trip flights. Haven't noodled around to verify it, but it sounds plausible, given the price of petrol. Those glorious spur-of-the-moment short trips may be doomed.
