Crazy Airlines Rules

How many times these things happened to you… When you ask for a coke in the flight all you get is a glass of coke filled with ice. Or for that matter, the airlines regularly invent new ways to charge you with additional fees.

The advertising campaign of JetBlue airlines, an American budget airlines, clearly showcases these events including limited leg space in economy class, checked-in baggage fee, Coke, etc. Right to the point and surely that's the reason the airlines is rated 4* by skytrax and awarded for highest customer satisfaction.

Thats a good call for all other airlines who advocate these rules to take note and amend their policies.

Independent journalism isn’t dead. You can help keep it alive.

As the only remaining independent, English-language news source reporting from Russia, The Moscow Times plays a critical role in connecting Russia to the world.

Editorial decisions are made entirely by journalists in our newsroom, who adhere to the highest ethical standards. We fearlessly cover issues that are often considered off-limits or taboo in Russia, from domestic violence and LGBT issues to the climate crisis and a secretive nuclear blast that exposed unknowing doctors to radiation.

As we approach the holiday season, please consider making a one-time donation — or better still a recurring donation — to The Moscow Times to help us continue producing vital, high-quality journalism about the world’s largest country.
