All these "surcharges" by the airlines - extra baggage fees, pillow and blanket, inflight drinks, etc. - amount to nothing but bad publicity for the airlines. Why not raise the price of ALL airline tickets by $20.00 or so (would anyone blink an eye at this?). This would more than cover any increases in operating expenses that these so-called "nickel & dime" fees are supposed to cover. And, as an added bonus, the media won't have anything "negative" to cover regarding the airline industry except, like everything else, prices are going up. No more sensationalizing headlines that read "Airline Now Charges $15.00 For A Pillow!"
