‘Pay-for-what-you-use’ In-flight Café

Beginning in August, US Air will charge $2 for all non-alcoholic beverages (including sodas, juices, bottled water and coffee) and $7 for alcoholic beverages (currently available for $5). They will continue to serve complimentary beverages on US Airways Shuttle, and in First Class and Envoy.
We saw this one coming, first was headsets, then food, finally baggage, and now beverages. We actually don’t believe this will really help out the airlines as much as they think. It really means that everyone will be buying their water and soda at the airport stands. Since passengers can’t bring their own beverages through security, the airports and airlines now will have a monopoly on this one.
