U.S. Airline Fees Get The Taiwanese Animation Treatment (VIDEO)

The Taiwanese animators over at NMATV are at it again, this time taking on the excessive airline fees being charged by U.S. airlines.

The comedians have already taken the TSA to task with an hysterical Christmas carol. And in November, a group of Japanese comedians made fun of the TSA patdown procedure, as well.

This time, the animators are mocking the excessive fees that American airlines lobby at their passengers. They have a point, too: In December, the Transportation Department released figures showing that U.S. airlines collected $3.4 billion in fees from consumers.

The video mocks everything from baggage fees to fuel surcharges and even the general unpleasantness of flying an American carrier. Of course, the plug for Asian airlines comes at the end (they might as well be creating an ad for Cathay Pacific).
