BUSINESS BRIEFING / AIRLINES
If you want a pillow and blanket in coach on US Airways, it’s going to cost you $7.
US Airways said it would begin charging for its “Power-Nap Sack” on Feb. 16. It’s following the lead of JetBlue Airways, which announced a similar policy last summer.
Airlines are adding fees on checked luggage and now pillows and blankets to raise more money as they battle a downturn in travel caused by the recession. US Airways reported that January traffic fell 6.2%.
