Airlines are making it much more difficult for groups of travelers to sit together, unless they want to pay extra for seats with more legroom or those near the front of the plane. Since last Thanksgiving, American Airlines, Delta, Frontier and United have increased the number of coach seats requiring an extra fee. That means it's much more difficult to find adjacent seats unless passengers pay an extra $25 per person, each way. (AP Photo/ Lynne Sladky, File)
