American tosses pillows off most domestic flights

Airline pillows are soon coming off most of American Airlines' domestic flights to cut costs.
Estimated savings: $375,000 a year. American is hoping most passengers won't care that pillows are gone.

Some great quotes from the article:
'I have never used pillows on American or any other carrier,' says James Espy, president of a Christopher, Ill.-based company that makes Christmas decorations. 'Have you looked at these specimens? How often are they cleaned?'

Washington-based frequent flier David Blanchard says he'll never substitute a blanket for a pillow because airplane blankets collect germs, too. 'I can't tell you how many times I've seen people wrap their feet in them,' he says.
