Respetfully and completely disagree.

If Airtran markets it properly it will not only work but make them money. Furtheremore they will be offering a perk that many airlines do not - clean blankets AND clean pillows.

But the key will be the marketing. Airtran needs to use the cleanliness/hygenie slant in order to sell it. Also, Airtran can get away with it due to their image as a 'low cost' carrier. The 'network' carriers (as they are called) cannot.
