US Airways to Reinstate Free Drinks

US Airways CEO Doug Parker seems to have decided that all the whining isn’t worth it:  the airline will no longer charge $2 for a soda.  The carrier had gone all a la carte when oil went through the roof, but now that prices have come down, they’re rolling back one piece of that model.  Don’t worry – they’ll still earn nearly half a billion dollars this year from a la carte sales…but just not from soda.  If you miss paying for your soda, Spirit is still selling it on board.  (I don’t have a problem with charging for it – if people are willing to pay, why not?  They’re running a business…Healthy airlines are good for all of us.)
