Speaking of fees...Well, we weren't exactly, but we were on National Public Radio's Morning Edition talking about ancillaries fees and charges. You can listen through this link. Their story ran just as US Airways' newest, charging for sodas, coffee, and water, was hitting the seats and just as JetBlue's $7 pillow-and-blanket set was getting a lot of attention. TIME magazine, the widely read newsweekly, named US Airways the stingiest airline, but we wonder if they've seen its financials: a $567-million deficit.
Ancillaries again in and on the air
TIME also named Southwest most generous, so one does have cause to wonder.
