Recently whenever I go somewhere I've been experiencing a well I hate to say it but a "cheapness" on airlines. An example, when we flew to Mexico on American Airlines last year, we didn't get anything during the flight except water. I mean no little bag of preztals, no glass of juice, NOTHING. Not even the ear wigs that I remember used to be free on every flight so we could watch the one of the 2 tv's they had on the whole plane. I even remember once going on a flight when I was 16 (wow I feel old saying that considering how long ago it was) and getting a little Virgin Atlantic bag with goodies in it! This past trip we flew Continental and, being an overnight flight, they had given us a breakfast in the morning, water and a little baggie of preztals. It was nice we each had our own little tv set in front of us, but still not ear wigs. Granted, you can buy any of these things on the flight, they will cost you though. Water is 5 dollars and the ear wigs are 3. I brought my own ear wigs from ipod and Martin and I shared them, just the thought of throwing away money, any money, even 3$, enabled me to watch a sci-fi and him to watch a romantic comedy (which he actually ended up liking I think). Somehow I misplaced them in the travel, and so on the way home on our 10 hour flight, I was forced to fork over 3$ for new ones. It annoyed me so much. I still have them now and am determined to use them on every flight we go on and with my ipod! lol. The airline also totally allows you to buy food and drinks and bring them on the plane as long as you buy them in the airport. The airport is alot cheaper than the airplane so I recommend it. We weren't sure but I proved Martin wrong when I walked onto the plane with my Starbucks and a smile on my face! :) and ps "Its All About Steve" isn't so bad!
