Expedia Booking Fee $7.00.

There were flights if you chose Delta with Delta that have no booking fees. But if you fly out on Alaska and back on Delta there is a $7 booking fee which I think is pure extortion for the following reasons

1. When Expedia goes to book the ticket you are on Alaska Ticket Stock as Delta is a partner no extra work just a different PNR.

2. To send one email with both PNRs costs them pennies.

3. Other websites allow you to book multiple airlines with no extra fees.

4. When I booked a Lufthansa/Brussels Airlines Itinerary on Expedia I flew a combination of Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines and was not assessed a fee.
