Airline Tip of the Day

This is a tip exclusively for "the powers that be" in the airline industry. Ok, so we get it. Times are tough. You're bankrupt. You're laying people off. Your checkbook bounces when you pay the electric bill. But for the love. Charging people $5 for a bag of peanuts and pretzels just makes you look like a bunch of cheap-A's. I mean, seriously, just add the 25 cents it costs to buy those to my fare in all the 18-million dollars in taxes. You're actually doing yourself more harm than good by nickel-and-diming away cheap things that leave your customers offended that they'd spend hundreds of dollars on their fare and be STARVING.
