When Weighing Your Options, Choose Choice Air

When Weighing Your Options, Choose Choice Air

I love options. It’s one of the main reasons that, although the country provides some serenity, that I choose to live in a city. If I want a loaf of bread, I can choose from hundreds of local bakeries. If I need batteries, I can walk within a one-mile radius and find enough battery power to provide the world’s essential energy (sad, but true.)

The city provides options, that’s why people are so drawn to it. So, when I saw the headline, Introducing Choice Air, over at WorldHum.com, all I could think was: finally, a company who offers real options.

The article outlined all of the options for fliers carrying a credit-card. You want to use your EasyTray? Five dollars. Feeling hungry? A tray of eats and drink for six dollars. It all sounded so suiting, so individualistic, catering to each one’s specific preferences.

And, then . . .

If the plane crashes and you want to use your flotation device underneath your seat? Nominal fee. A standard $300 charge as the CloseDoor surcharge. Need to use the washroom? Fees may vary.

The shameful look on my face when I finally realized the irony in the demands of the individual and his/her/my own expectations of options? Priceless.

Give a girl some slack, I didn’t have my morning coffee, yet.
