Take a sweater

Well American Airlines announced quietly last week that starting on May 1st they will be charging passengers $8 for a blanket and a pillow on flights lasting over 2 hours.  Hmmm, there are a lot of things wrong with this.  First, the cost of a blanket and pillow used to be included in your ticket.  But then again so did seat selection, 1-2 checked bags and a meal.  To make it up to you American is offering a $10 coupon good on any $30 purchase at Bed, Bath and Beyond.  So essentially they are advertising to you (for BB&B), and charging you for the blanket.  Unbelievable.  All I can say is, I’d rather pack a sweater.  (NOTE:  American Airlines seats have headrests with movable flaps that will comfortably hold your head while you sleep – save your money folks)
