And with everyone now, or soon, charging to check even one bag, you can't bring your own on your carryon, as you'll need that for everything else!

This is just getting pathetic. People will soon have to wear layers of clothing so other necessities can be in the one piece of luggage they have to pay for. It seems airlines are using gas prices as an excuse to charge for everything and the return will be tiny. Maybe we will have to put a quarter in the oxygen mask box so it will pop out if the plane loses pressure. Those who don't pay in advance die.

Credit cards will be gladly accepted

I'm sure there will also be a coin slot or credit card swipe to get the air, or to signal the cabin attendant. It's interesting that when market prices go down, there isn't an adjustment. For example, the extra charges for baggage will never go away now that they've been started.

We just got tickets on Spirit

$15 for 1st checked bag ($60 for 2 of us round trip) That was with pre-arrangement on-line,more if you wait till you get to the check-in at airport. THEN when we got to the next screen to choose our seats...premium charges ranging from 5 to 20 dollars depending on aisle, window, bulkhead...Ridiculous...people will be adding more weight (and wait) as they stuff their carry-ons then hold things up struggling to stow and retrieve them, all the while toting food, their own blankets, dvd players and then leaving tons of trash and greasey french fries stuck in the seats...that will save the airlines money I'm sure.

I actually don't mind this one, since I never seem to be able to get a blanket or pillow. This way I can buy one and not only do I have it, but it's clean.

the pillows and blankets are not going to be the same type they had before. they will be able to be taken home - they are "eco friendly." with the purchase for $7, you'll get a $5 coupon for bed bath and beyond.

considering you dont know where the pillows and blankets have been, this may not be such a bad thing.

so, next time you fly, you bring your $7 pillow & blanket with you.....will you be allowed to take them through security checking as a separate item or will you have to stuff them into your carry-on bag along with your purse and everything else???

I always bring my own as they are clean. I bought a small narrow pillow about 7 inches high by 12 and it fints fine in a small duffle where I keep my books, etc- also they have little blow up thingys, too. I also bought a smallish fleece-like blankey at the dollar store, or you can go to the fabric store and buy yard or two. It folds up to almost nothing.

I read the short article and I agree. If you don't want to pay, bring your own.

DD bought these items for her boys. They are polar fleece blankets that fold into themselves to make an easy to carry square pillow.

As for me, I have not traveled without my small down pillow for years. Even on short trips, I use it behind my lower back for support. I must admit that if pillows are available onboard, I grab one of them as well, and then I can be relatively comfortable in cattle (I mean coach) class.

These were also offered on the American Eagle flight I took Saturday. I don't recall the price. I didn't see anyone buy one, so I can't comment on quality.

$7 sounds awfully high, but if you get to keep it and if it's clean, that'd be ok. We often bring our own clean mini-blankets that we bought at an airport store, rather than using the potentially icky ones on the plane.

I flew Jet Blue (Flight 433 Boston - Orlando) last night, or should I say early this morning due to the storms.

When they announced that there were blankets and pillows for sale at $7.00,it drew laughter, chuckles and a few sneers.

I do like JetBlue, but this is very poor in many respects. No charge for my checked bag.
