Airlines to Begin Selling Ads on Boarding Passes

Several major airlines will begin displaying ads on boarding passes for customers who check in from home. Customers can print the boarding passes without ads if they want.

So, then, what’s the point?

Actually, the point is, pretty soon there’ll be a “print without ads” fee, and then we’ll all be looking at giant pictures of overpriced three-ounce toiletries as we tear our own boarding passes and hand them to the lazy Spirit gate agents.

By the way… is it just me, or have airlines stopped even pretending to clean the planes between flights lately…?
