Luxurious airline extras and services appeal to indulgence-loving flyers

Implications - Despite the increase in frugality among consumers, many still love to be pampered, especially when it comes to traveling. Thus, many airlines are offering extra amenities, enhancing their services and offerings with special luxuries -- for example, British Airlines' complimentary wine for all VIP passengers and Japan Airlines' bidet toilets. Many of the amenities are free of charge, which gives travelers another reason to choose that particular airline and helps to give an airline an edge in the face of fierce competition.
