Want A Pillow? Seven Dollars

NEW YORK (AP) - It's something else you'll have to pay for that
you used to get for free during an airline flight.
JetBlue says it's now charging customers for pillows and
blankets.
The airline says it's doing away with the recycled blankets and
pillows it had been using. Instead, passengers will be able to get
what the airline calls an "eco-friendly" travel blanket and
pillow for $7 on flights longer than two hours.
They come with a $5 coupon to home furnishings retailer Bed Bath
and Beyond.
Last month, JetBlue said it expects to collect about 40 million
dollars from customers buying seats with extra leg room this year.
The airline's $15 fee for a second checked bag is expected to
mean about 20 million dollars in additional revenue.
