what are you doing to us? I flew home from Boston yesterday on USAir. On the first leg of the flight I must have briefly dozed. When I woke up the flight attendant was nearby and asked me if I'd like a beverage. I asked for some orange juice. A couple of minutes later she brought it and said, "That will be $2.00." Now, I must have been dozing because I definitely did NOT hear an announcement that you now had to purchase beverages. If I had, I definitely would not have asked for one.
Airlines can't give you a pack of peanuts or pretzels anymore; many are charging for you to check a bag; and, now at least USAir charges for a beverage! Give me a break!
Both segments of my flight home were completely sold out. I find it hard to believe the airlines are not making money given how many seats are sold on each flight. Where will this ever end?
