Zocdoc. Now they're getting to the point where I have to change the channel because of how repulsive they are.

A mild nit.

The AT&T commercial, where the woman doesn't get the free meal, so she just asks for water, and is told "cash or charge?". I don't fly that often, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if an airline charged for water, because, where are they going to get it from? It's not like there's flowing taps in the sky. Any provisions on board, even as simple as water, have to be brought on pre-flight and accounted for when it comes to aircraft weight.

Spirit charges. AA and Delta still offer free beverage service on the flights Iíve taken in the last year.

If Spirit could charge for the fart-filled air that you have to breathe, they would.

But yeah, it doesn't surprise me at all, because as I already mentioned, water in the airplane is not a free flowing tap that they can just fill and refill your glass as much as you want, like in a restaurant.

On a side note, I turned the tv on and Bold and the Beautiful is on, and Liberty Bibberty is on there having some romantic moment with his tv wife.

I'm guessing if you're paying for water, you're getting bottled water?
