I was travelling from San Francisco to Vancouver, BC to visit family and I was 6 months pregnant. I was flying alone, and although I was having a good pregnancy I would easily get cold, hungry, etc. I would carry granola bars, etc. in case I got hungry, but I got cold on the flight and my jacket wasn’t enough.
Low and behold when I asked for a blanket I was told I would need to pay $2.00! I didn’t have $2 ~ only $20, and they weren’t sure if they would have enough change. They said they might have to get me change when they landed. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Even the stewardess was embarrassed. I guess they would rather the pregnant lady shivers for 2 hours – what if I had no cash with me? Embarrassing for the airline - please just tack on $2 to my $500+ flight and spare us all.
