Default Paying Extra for Cheap Seats

In article you write:
It's been about 10 months since I last booked a flight. When did the airlines start this "cute" game of offering the
lowest fare but then charing extra for seats?

The basic economy fare trick started last year. They are desiged to
compete with super discounters like Spirit and Allegiant who don't
offer seat assignments or much of anything else. Unless you are four
feet tall so you fit in the worst seats and all of your stuff fits in
a handbag, basic economy is not for you.
