In recent years many new fees have been added to enhance our flight experience. Everyone loves paying to check a bag, have a snack, pick a seat or gain a couple of extra inches of space in coach, right?
Now the most surprising fee of all might be coming to American Airlines in mid- March.
According to the Onion, AA will no longer offer free cabin pressurization.
American Airlines CEO Doug Parker said “Unfortunately, to stay competitive as a legacy carrier in today’s air travel market, it no longer makes economic sense for us to provide breathable air at altitude”.
However, if you fly in premium cabins (first or business) or pay an additional fee, air pressurization would still be available. Awesome perk, right?
