The plane truth

The bad news: Starting Feb. 18, US Airways will charge passengers $7 each for an on-board pillow-and-blanket pack (called, I kid you not, the "nap sack").

The good news: The pillow can be used as a flotation device, and passengers can wrap themselves in the blankets to keep warm if they find themselves standing on the wing of a jet in the middle of Hudson River.

JetBlue already has them: they were hawking them on the plane on our recent Vegas trip.

At least we got FREE cookies and juice on our 4-plus hour flights!
