It all depends on the definition of "reasonable" - remembering that the carrier is likely a corporation, and thus has a duty to maximize profit, "reasonable" means "worth a try to extract more revenue from the customer with little chance of repercussions". It's similar to "ethics" when applied to lawyers - you may dislike being on the losing end, but it's rare enough that lawyers violate their code of ethics that it makes the news when it happens.
