JetBlue Now Charging for Pillows, Blankets

JetBlue Airways Corp. is dropping its policy of reusing blankets and pillows on flights and is now charging customers for the comfort amenities, the Associated Press reports. The new "eco-friendly" travel blanket and pillow costs $7 on flights longer than two hours and comes with a $5 coupon to Bed Bath & Beyond.
