Default New Pillow, Blanket Fees

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.

Thanks for the info Irish!

I'll pass on the pillow and blanket next month.
The JetBlue pillows don't look comfy anyway!

We always take our own neck pillow but have been going back and forth about taking our own similar blanket for our 10 hour redeye to England. After reading about this on the internet and here and now seeing the pictures, I think we will bring our own. They are nice, light, and good to throw over you for a mid afternoon nap in the cabin.
