WSJ — “Several airlines are selling the chance to jump to the front of check-in lines, boarding queues and even security lines for about $10 to $30 per flight. Perks that used to be reserved only for elite-level frequent fliers and first-class passengers are now up for grabs to those who’ll pay to jump the line. Lots of travelers are buying.”
