Personally I hate it when I get to my seat and find a pillow and blanket has already been placed in it. I then have to get rid of them, while playing the overhead bin wars, and trying to get out of the aisle. Delta does this all the time for first class, and I wish they'd stop. If I want a pillow I'll ask for it.
What can you buy at overpriced BB&B? A bar of soap?
Well Dave, at least your in first class where there is... what? 2 inches more leg room?
Oh but don't forget the free drinks. Some people get really hung up on free drinks.
Truth is it's getting really disgusting what the airlines are charging for and it's getting totally out of control. I think most people have seen the tongue and cheek video of what the airlines are charging for...seat belts, oxygen, looking at the emergency exit instructions. The sad thing is it's almost at that point.
Poor Jet Blue. They only estimate they will be
making $40 million on their fee for seats with extra leg room, and they'll only make $20 million on the extra fee on the 2nd piece of luggage.
