    haha maybe we should help the airlines out and just create a list of things to charge the guests for.
    1. bathroom usages- .25 per bathroom break- just like some of the big cities.
    2. $1 per barf bag. Maybe offer a buy one, get one.
    3. with no free snacks, what's the point of flight attendants. Get rid of them- it's not like anyone needs to know how to not die in an accident.
    4. Charge babies $5 each time they cry.
    5. Remove above head lighting. Charge guests $10 for reading lights.

          I was going to say, most airlines do charge for snacks now! At least NWA and United do. It's $5 or $3 depending on airline and type of snack.

            oh wait, one more, $10 for the priveledge of deplaning before others. everyone always wants to jump up and run down the aisle, we might as well charge them for it

            you know what's really scary? there is probably a group of employees in a windowless office somewhere who gets paid to come up with things like this sad.

              oh, you joke ... but Paul needed a receipt for his recent flight (a week ago) and couldn't get it online. He called Continental and they charge $25 for a receipt if the travel is in the past! WTF!?
