As airline carriers are seeking out ways to counter the rising fuel costs, the friendly skies have hit our wallets harder than ever. Airlines are letting their FEE-dom ring, with new charges for what once were standard amenities.
Want a pillow? It will cost you. Airlines are now charging $7 for that scratchy blanket and understuffed pillow.
Forget about packing clothes. A $15-$50 fee for each checked bag has travelers feeling naked.
Mouth drier than the Sahara? Enjoy $2+ non-alcoholic drinks like water. $7 if you need a little something to take the edge off.
Show your fellow passengers how VIP you are by dropping an extra $14 for additional leg room.
The amenities, now dubbed “a la carte” options, are about as pleasant as your 2 hour delay at JFK.
