Attendant: Welcome aboard Ala Carte Air, Sir. May I see your ticket?
Attendant: You’re in seat 12B. That will be $5, Please!
Passenger: What for?
Attendant: For telling you where to ‘Sit’.
Passenger: But I already knew where to sit.
Attendant: Nevertheless, we are now charging a seat locator fee of $5. It’s the Airline’s new Policy.
Passenger: That’s the craziest thing I ever heard. I won’t pay it.
Attendant: Sir, Do you want a seat on this flight or not?
Passenger: Yes, yes. All right, I’ll pay. But the airline is going to hear about this.
Attendant: Thank you. My goodness, your carryon bag looks heavy. Would you like me to stow it in the overhead compartment for you?
Passenger: That would be Swell, Thanks.
Attendant: No problem. Up we go, and done! That will be $10, Please.
Attendant: The Airline now charges a $10 carryon assistance fee.
Passenger: This is extortion. I won’t stand for it.
Attendant: Actually, you’re right, you can’t stand. You need to sit, and fasten your seat belt. We’re about to push back from the gate. But, first I need that $10.
Passenger: “No Way! ”
Attendant: Sir, if you don’t comply, I will be forced to call the Air Marshal. And you really don’t want me to do that.
Passenger: Why Not? Is he going to ‘Shoot me’?
Attendant: No, But there’s a $50 Air-Marshal hailing fee.
Passenger: Oh, all right, here, take the $10. I can’t believe this.
Attendant: Thank you for your cooperation, sir. Is there anything else I can do for you?
Passenger: Yes. It’s stuffy in here, and my overhead fan doesn’t seem to work. Can you fix it?
Attendant: Your overhead fan is not broken, Sir. Just insert two quarters into the overhead coin slot for the First Five minutes.
Passenger: The Airline is charging me for Cabin air?
Attendant: Of course not, sir. Stagnant cabin air is provided free of charge. It’s the circulating air that costs 50 cents.
Passenger: I don’t have any quarters. Can you make change for a dollar?
Attendant: Certainly, Sir! Here you go!
Passenger: But you’ve given me only three quarters for my dollar.
Attendant: Yes, there’s a ‘change making fee’ of 25 cents.
Passenger: For cryin’ out loud. All I have left is a lousy quarter? What the heck can I do with this?
Attendant: Hang onto it. You’ll need it later for the lavatory.
