What does Jonathan have to say?



Would You Like A Seatbelt Too?

As the economy continues to stumble, you can feel some more turbulance in the airline industry.  The lastest?  U.S. Airways is now going to charge $7 for a pillow and a blanket in coach. They're calling it a "Power Nap Sack".  I tend to think of a pillow and blanket on an airplane as a piece of tissue and a single cotton ball. However, officials from the company say it's way more than a tiny blanket and pillow.   The kits will include a 34-by-60-inch fleece blanket, a neck pillow, eye shades, foam ear plugs and a $10-off coupon for items in the SkyMall catalog. They come in a fleece drawstring bag embroidered with the airline's logo. That drawstring bag will sure be nice!  Wow!  I'll be sure to take that along and proudly display it at home. I understand the airlines are doing whatever they can to make a little more cash, but I can already see what's coming next: Flight attendant: "Good morning ladies and gentlemen.  Welcome to your U.S. Airways flight.  If you would like to use the bathroom it will cost $2 a trip or you can get a unlimited pass for $15." "In the event the cabin becomes depressurized a mask will fall from above.  Just insert $5 and the oxygen will begin to flow.  Your seat cushion can be used as a floatation device  for just $3." "And finally make sure your seatbelt is fastened.  Can't get it to work?  Did you insert $2?" "That's for flying U.S. Airways and don't forget to throw in a couple of bucks for gas money."
