5 Airline Perks You Might Not Know About
Whether you’re hopping on a commuter flight for work or jet-setting to a stunning locale like Charleston, here are five up-in-the-air perks to take advantage of now.
Jetblue: Free Wi-Fi
Dubbed Fly-Fi, it’s kind of a dream when you’ve got emails to get through but don’t have an expense account to cover the cost on other airlines (sometimes as much as $30 per flight).
Southwest Airlines: A Complimentary Companion Pass
You'll need to rack up quite a few travel points (to the tune of 110,000) to earn one of these, but once you reach that milestone, a companion pass means a friend or family member can book a Southwest flight and travel with you for free. (FYI, if you open up a Southwest credit card, you could earn up to 60,000 points right off the bat.)
Delta: Free Bagels
So, this amenity applies only to Delta's Shuttle (terminals are located in Boston, New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C.), but if you board a commuter flight that takes off before 11 a.m., complimentary bagels are served hot.
Virgin America: USB Plugs at Every Seat
No more panicking at the terminal because your phone battery is at four percent. The second you’re on board a Virgin America flight, you can pop your USB cord (or regular charger) into your very own outlet. Battery = juiced.
United: Complimentary Wine and Beer on International Flights
Yep, vino is free—and available as soon as you reach cruising altitude. Talk about a great way to gear up for Paris.
