Filed under: Business BlitzFoodAlcoholGIFs

Airlines are starting to cut limes off their drink menus due to increases in prices!

If you're someone who enjoys a nice refreshing beverage on your flight, then you might want to pay attention to this!

Production of limes has been at an all-time low due to flooding in Mexico and droughts in California, meaning prices have gone WAY up! In fact, the cost is so high that most flights have chosen to completely eliminate them from their drink menu and it doesn't look like

Delta Air Lines Loses Woman's Kitty

delta airlines loses womans cat

This seems pretty inexcusable to us.

California woman Michelle Evans sent her cat Patch on a Delta Air Lines flight from Cairo, Egypt to NYC's JFK airport, but the airline claims they lost the cat.

Here's how Michelle reacted when she was informed that her cat had "broken out of" its carrier:

"I was frantic, I was hysterical, and the first thing they did was shove $200 (for Patch's ticket) in my hand. I said 'You've got to be kidding. This is the last thing I care about, the money. You lost my cat.'"

Looks like Delta security officials tried to claim that the cat got "enraged" and broke out of the carrier, but they refused to let Michelle see the carrier itself.

Since then, she's been frantically trying to find her cat by contacting animal rights organizations in Egypt and PETA, posting a $500 reward for her cat's return, and she EVEN started a "Find Patch" blog.

Here's what Delta spokeswoman Susan Elliot has said about the airline's animal transportation safety:

"…We even have zoos that entrust us with their exotics. These escapes are due to some unfortunate situations. We take our responsibility of transporting our customers' animals extremely seriously."

We hope Michelle is able to find her missing cat, but we've gotta say we're sketched out.

Sounds like something may have happened to Patch's carrier, and it sounds like Delta is trying to cover it up.

Very sad.

Boo Airlines!

airlines making lots of money off of baggage

If you already dislike checking baggage, you'll like it EVEN LESS after hearing this!

According to the Transportation Department, the top 20 largest American airlines have collected a total of $2.6 billion in baggage fees SO FAR in 2010.

We can only imagine how much they'll make over the holidays!

Airlines are making 23 percent more than they did this time last year AND they're making over 5 times more than they did in 2007, when they made $464.3 million in baggage fees!

Delta Air Lines is making the most off of baggage, with $733.2 million in the bank so far for 2010. American Airlines and US Airways are next in line, with $431.8 million and $388.1 million so far.

…We wonder how much we can shove into our carry-on…
