Devil, you should check your info... 'that airline' that now charges $7 for a pillow and blanket, is MY airline, JetBlue airways..
Now just to offset and ballance your drivel that you read in the outraged Media press that an airline should charge for a blanket and pillow.. well first of all the blanket and pillow you get on an airliner is used.. many times.. not washed,, often the cover is not even changed on the pillow... the pillows are just picked up off the floor and put back in the overhead bins for the next idiot to use.. and the blankets are inspected for puke and semen, and if no obvious spots, refolded and stacked in the overhead bins for reuse... So you want free pillows and blankets.. go for it.... at JetBlue, we used to collect and clean all the blankets and pillows after every flight.. not any more..
For the 'outragous' charge of $7 you get your own NEW blanket and pillow, and a $5 coupon for Bed Bath &Beyond.. so for an actual $2 you get CLEAN healthy products to use...
Plus, any idiot who gets on an airplane in shorts and a tee shirt and expects to stay warm doesn't have the common sense to know up from down.. what is wrong with the picture of people bringing a sweater, or a sweat shirt along??? Are these people the same people who live their lives sucking on the socialist society tit, expecting to never have to think or take care of themselves?? My God, do these idiots expect a blanket when they get into a cab or bus or subway?? why would they expect anything different for a $49 ticket to Buffalo?? Gheez.
On my flight last night,, we sold 10 sets of pillowsandblankets... want to guess how many were left on the plane?? 7, yes that's right 7 of the 10 were left in their seats, or stuffed in the seatback pocket.. and... get this.. you know the $$$'y 'U' shaped neck pillows that sell for $12 in the airport lobby?? well there were 10, yes TEN of those left behind in the airplane.. so when $150+ worth of pillows and blankets get left behind,, then OBVIOUSLY the public just doesn't care... But the MEDIA makes a big Hoopla about it... typical.. feed the gripe-hungry public something to bitch about, especially those who never fly, now they have something else to whine about...
OK, so lets see... On NWA, SPIRIT, American, UNited. and all the other airlines, you get a bag of peanuts, maybe,, for a dollar or two, or a bag of 'trail mix' for $7, and half a can of soda..Hell Spirit charges $2 for a bottle of %%$#$% WATER.. WTF???? Water??? And to ask for seconds?? good luck!!
On Jetblue you get UNLIMITED Potato chips, Doritos, three different types of cookies, Biscotti, several cans of soda, iced tea, coffee, etc FOR FREE... we only limit the quantities to those who are filling their purses or backpacks with our soda and snacks..some people think that we are a free-product grocery store.
So devil, put the crap you read in the liberal media in perspective before you type it onto a post or spew it out,, you are being hoodwinked by the liberal media.
Gheesh,, I got a few fleck of foam on my keyboard... this crap really pisses me off, like the people who say it is 'intollerable' to have to wait for the weather to clear before we take off... WTF?? those idiots are the same ones who want me to avoid turbulence... yeah.. like that is something I can SEE??? My God the public is %%##$#%$& ignorant !!
Rant off, for now..
