American to charge $8 for pillow & blanket

February 8, 2010

It’s time to pack your own pillow & blanket if you are going to travel on American Airlines, because if you want one, it’s going to cost you.

The airline will charge $8 for a pillow and blanket in coach class for domestic trips and some international flights longer than two hours, beginning May 1. The international flights are to and from Canada, Mexico, Hawaii, the Caribbean and Central America.

The airline will sell a blue fleece blanket with an inflatable neck pillow in a clear zippered pouch, and will throw in coupon for $10 off a $30 purchase at Bed, Bath and Beyond.

JetBlue and US Airways charge $7 for a blanket-and-pillow set, with US Airways adding eye shades and earplugs.

We wonder if airlines will ever increase the allowed baggage weight to carry all these extra stuff. Send in your comments with what you think.
