It's called a la carte pricing and it's boosting their bottom line. A report in the Arizona Republic says US Airways scored some $100 million in revenue from service fees in the fourth quarter. Who's gonna give that up? The only airline not sippin the tea is Southwest.
US Airways will begin selling a $7 Power-Nap sack kit that includes blanket, inflatable neck pillow, eyeshades and earplugs. I say bring your own (maybe that Snuggie you got for Christmas) and deny them even the slightest revenue lift for giving passengers the shaft. This comes just as I was starting to like them again because of Capt. Sully and Hudson Miracle crew.
