Need a blanket? It’ll cost you

American Airlines, beginning on May 1st, will start charging $8 for pillows and blankets in coach class seats for domestic flights longer than two hours. Story Here. Comparatively, JetBlue and US Airways currently charge $7 for a blanket-and-pillow set, with US Airways adding eye shades and earplugs.

Ridiculous. Utterly ridiculous. Before reading this story I couldn’t think of another reason to dislike air travel. There you go.
