61. Or....it is a good thing

Back in the old days, you had to pay out the ass for top of the line service. Airline travel was a social event and you even dressed for it. A downfall of this was that only the rich could afford it. What if you just needed to get from point A to point B and were willing to bypass pillows, a hot meal, etc? Too bad. Pay for all luxuries or drive.

What this ala cart service does is allow individuals who don't need the luxuries to avoid paying them, thereby making the base flight more affordable to more people. These things don't bother me because I am a tight ass and will do anything I can to avoid any fees charged.
