How far would some Americans go to save on an airline ticket? They’d be willing not to go — as in forgoing bathroom privileges — that’s how far.
Or so says a survey by the website Travelzoo.com, which in light of rising airfares, supplemental fees and service cutbacks asked 1,000 people their thoughts on whether the days of “affordable” travel are over. Eighty percent said they believe they are.
The survey then asked what measures they’d be willing to take to save a hefty sum on a plane ticket. More than a quarter said they’d stand up on a cross-country flight to save 50%. And 41% said they’d give up use of the airplane restrooms in exchange for a half-price ticket.
Of course, the questions were hypothetical. But let’s hope the airlines don’t get any bright ideas.
