Only thing left for the airlines is to install pay toilets

April 16, 2008

US Airways next month will start charging customers at least $5 per flight to reserve more desirable seats at the front of coach class — the airline’s latest move toward a la carte pricing for things that used to be free.

In the "Choice Seats" program, which starts May 7, customers who check in for flights on the airline’s Web site can pay $5 per flight to reserve an aisle or window seat in the first several rows of coach, US Airways President Scott Kirby said in a note to employees Wednesday.

The number of reserved seats will vary, Kirby said, but it typically will be about 8 percent of coach seats. Choice Seats will be available on all US Airways flights except the shuttle service in the Northeast and Colgan-operated Saab 340 planes.

Now, will US Airways offer a discount for sitting in the back of the plane? Don’t think so.
