Wonder if anyone at USAirways considered whether, by deciding to charge passengers for water and sodabeverages, they'll actually lose $679 per passenger -- that's the sound of me booking my next flight on JetBlue or Southwest or Virgin or one of those airlines that doesn't suck rocks -- instead of making the $2 they want people to pay.
Guess not. This kind of thinking should definitely help them stay in the black. And having to pay an additional $25 booking fee (in addition to existing charges) for domestic rewards reservations? Hmm. It's almost like you're not getting a free flight anymore. By the time you pay your booking fees, $15 for checking a bag (or $40 if you're checking two bags), buy your bloody Mary and a bottle of water, you've gotta be shelling approximately what a full-fare flight used to cost.
See you on Amtrak.
