Shocking Way Airlines Could Charge You For Tickets

There's word that the airlines could be considering a new way to determine how much you pay for your tickets--and we're not talking about where and when you're planning to travel.

Word has it that the airlines could be collecting your personal data and are considering factoring in how much money you make, among a few other factors. That's according to the Huffington Post that also says the micro-target prices as it is called would also use other personal info like your on-line browsing history and buying habits to determine how much to charge you for your flight. Translation: the more money you make and spend, the more you could potentially be charged for your airline tickets.

While there's speculation, there's no confirmation that this is already happening; however, the Huffington Post & Yahoo! Finance have some suggestions on how to be prepared in the event that your info is being used against you.
