What ancillary products/services have you purchased via an airline's website or other distribution point (e.g. aboard), either through obligation or as an option? For me, it's on-board snacks and drinks, checked luggage, and card fees.

Always on the look out for a good duty free offer!

Recent purchases include:

1. Bang & Olufsen MP3 headset for my wife and a model 744 for my son on BA last year (LHR-MIA). The headset was a real bargain

2. Bagged a Qatar Airways A380 model for my son when flying QR LKR-DOH-KUL earlier this year

Looking forward to my next long hauler with SAA (LHR-CPT) in Oct

Let's see, I bought a watch on an SK flight from Manchester a few years ago, saved almost 200SEK, since I paid in dollars and SK had not yet adjusted the prices after a recent drop in the value of the US dollar.

And awful buy-on-board SK breakfast. *Shudder*. Don't know why I keep buying that crap...

I've also bought a couple of pretty neat "cabin bags" (fancy term for shoulder bags) from SK's online webshop. Check them out here: http://www.crossroads.se/saswebshop/default.asp?language=en

Click your way to "Bags", then on to "SAS Retro". They look great. I have the "Retroline Gothenburg" and the "Retroline Tokyo".

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

If I am flying domestic coach, I am buying drinks on-board. If it's a morning flight, it is usually a bloody Mary or mimosa. Throughout the day it's usually beer and if it's a night flight, I'll have wine or a cocktail.


Has anyone bought bought beef jerky or a sewing kit on SkyBus?  Smile

Checked lugage, on board snacks and drinks and speedy boarding plus on my next two flights. I will get an electrical adapter £10 on board. Is aftershave / perfume cheaper than in the airport shops on board?

I bought a turkey wrap on board an AA flight SJU-JFK. It was pretty good. I wouldn't pay $5 for it anywhere else, though.

I've purchased water onboard an Allegiant Air flight. I was an employee at the time and thought water was complimentary.....guess not.
