Young flyers are more willing than older
travelers to pony up for these perks. Air travelers
complain a lot about being nickel and dimed all along their trip, but younger
flyers especially say they are happy to pay up if it makes the journey easier.
A new report from flight update app company FlightView finds that 75% of
millennials, compared with 60% of all flyers, are willing to pay extra for
certain conveniences. The survey of about 2,300 people shows that
travelers care most about reducing baggage headaches and using mobile devices
freely. Of those willing to pay anything at all, 53% said they'd pay for
special RFID baggage tags that use radio frequency technology to reduce the
likelihood of lost suitcases, while 40% said they would pay to check luggage
at airport gates so as not to have to lug bags around airport restaurants (and
bathrooms). Hate waiting forever by the carousel for your bag? You
aren't alone: 37% said they would pay for priority baggage claim. As for
in-flight bonuses, while only about one half of all respondents said they
would pay extra for amenities, 60% of millennials were open to spending more
in the air. The most popular in-flight perks were related to technology:
64% of those willing to pay anything said they would purchase high-performance
WiFi with enough bandwidth to stream video, while 50% said they would pay for
in-seat electrical outlets for charging devices. Only 22% said they would
pay extra to exit the plane faster upon landing. A spokesperson for
FlightView says the distribution of millennials' preferences for each perk
mirrors that of all survey respondents. This article originally appeared
