    Airlines Could Start Charging Based On Online Shopping Habits, Experts Say

    People who spend more may find themselves paying higher prices. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is preemptively asking the federal government to protect passengers from technology that uses personal information such as income to affect pricing.

    Schumer says under the policy, two flyers sitting next to each other could be given two different prices based on their internet browsing history, online purchasing, or even income level.

    How are these companies allowed to even implement this idea?

    Airplane seats already differ wildly in price, so what's the big deal in using more data to skew the price even further?

    Free market, baby.
