What Ancillary Products Have You Purchased?

Mon Apr 07, 2008 11:49 am

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

Are you saying that on some carriers, these items are extra...?

Oh how vulgar !!!  Silly

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.
