Airline Pillows and Blankets: Guess How Much?

At first, I bristled at the just-announced American Airlines fee for pillows and blankets — I mean what else can possibly be expensed?! (Umm, don't answer that Ryanair.) But, as I began to think about it, I simply couldn't disillusion myself into thinking that the previously free pillows and blankets were carefully washed — or washed at all — between uses so this could be for the best . . . infestation wise. To lament the latest charge, I gathered up fees for several of the major airlines. Test yourself to see how much you'll shell out the next time you fly the friendly skies.

I didn't realize Jet Blue charged too? But I have always survived without, so this doesn't really affect me anyway. I am just too grossed out by the thought that they are not washed between uses. I have been on flights where they actually told us to take our garbage with us because they have another flight leaving right after ours, so I can't imagine they had time to wash blankets / pillows.

I just use my jacket or sweater. :shrug: But I don't really sleep on airplanes anyway...I'm rarely that comfortable.

i'm sorry, but how hard is it to get through a short flight without a pillow and blanket? i've never used one for a non-international flight.
