FILE - In this Wednesday, 21, 2011, file photo, holiday travelers, including Donald Occimio of Mesa, Ariz., dressed as Santa Claus, and his wife Diane check in with customer service agent Angelee Arciniega, right, for their Southwest Airlines flight at the Terminal 4 ticketing area at Sky Harbor International Airport, in Phoenix. The 2012 Christmas travel season could be the busiest in six years, with AAA predicting that 93.3 million Americans will hit the road. That's 1.6 percent more than last year and just 400,000 people shy of the 2006 record. (AP Photo/The Arizona Republic, Tom Tingle) MARICOPA COUNTY OUT; MAGS OUT; NO SALES

5. Erica Morris — If this chick tries to charge me extra for my bags, I'm putting her on the "Naughty List".
