In-flight napping will cost you. JetBlue announces a new $7 charge for pillows and blankets.
By Samantha Bomkamp, AP
JetBlue Airways Corp. said Monday it is now charging customers for pillows and blankets.
The carrier has done away with the recycled blankets and pillows used on its flights and has started offering an "eco-friendly" travel blanket and pillow that can be purchased for $7 on flights longer than two hours. The pair come in a kit with a $5 coupon to home furnishings retailer Bed Bath & Beyond.

This is getting unreal...But, I have to say, I have carried a small blow up. neck pillow, and my own small lap robe, for years....they are small enough to put in my carry on of course, and are right at hand when I want them.
I just found out my air went down last night and Continental said too bad, so I am on an, airline rant right now:(

What's next you say ??
Remember in World War 2 they had glider planes? They would take plywood, outfit them to some semblance of a plane --cram them full of troops and hook them to a real plane, loaded with troops, then when they were within the area they were supposed to be, they would just release the gliders and ---good luck guys !
Can you see Delta taking off in a 767 towing a plywood box full of wide eyed folks on the way to Maimi for a cruise--circle the airport a couple of times, cut'er loose and then head to Ft. Lauderdale to land, hoping the ones in the cheapseats in the glider got down safely somewhere near the airport, or maybe even close to the ship !! Now that's a cost saving idea to think about!!
Thanks or the good luck wishes jackieb--I note you're from Missouri-- I retired form a certain company located in Columbia , Mo.
Thanks to all my hard work and their profit sharing plan, I get to cruise every now and then.
