Some airlines want to charge parents $25 to guarantee a seat next to their children? If they are separated, exactly who will take care of the children? The stranger they’re sitting next to or the flight attendant who already is annoyed? What is expected to happen if there is an emergency? Who is going to help that child?
Clearly this new nickel-and-dime scheme hasn’t been thought through. I suggest airlines study JetBlue to learn how to run an airline and be profitable. It knows how to treat its passengers.
I go out of my way to fly JetBlue whenever I can, including driving past Miami International Airport from my home in Homestead to Fort Lauderdale Airport, just to have a pleasant flying experience. It’s past time to start regulating the airlines again.Pat Ambrose, Homestead
