"No Free Ride"

I know things are bad for the airline industry. I understand they have to find any way they can to increase revenue. So when they started charging for meals and snacks, did I complain? No. Did I say anything when they started charging for baggage? Not a peep. I didn’t even gripe when they raised all the award levels and started charging extra for window and aisle seats. But when I heard that Jet Blue recently announced they were going to start charging for pillows, something had to be said – or sung. I mean, charging for pillows!?!? Really!?!? I wouldn’t let one of those germ infested drool collectors touch my head if they paid ME!!! Do they really think this will help increase profitability? I’d like to meet the person who’d pay $7 to rest their head on what is nothing more than a fabric covered Petrie dish. (With my luck, they’ll probably be in the seat next to me on my next flight!) I say just get rid of the pillows altogether, and we’ll all have more space in the overhead bins. But what do I know…


Fasten your seat belt. No-frills flying reaches new heights in this airline industry musical parody. It’s a different kind of in-flight entertainment that confirms what you already know – flying really IS for the birds! Forget about first class, business class or economy class. This video has NO class…

That was funny. It's sad that half of the stuff you show already exists and the other half might actually happen. Thanks for sharing.

What do you guys think of this sleeper concept?

Granted, it's not as good as the stuff that passenger was dreaming about in the video, but it's a start!
