One Of This U.S. Airline’s Best Perks Is Quietly Going Away

On a long flight, most of us just want to recline our seats, fire up the onboard entertainment system, and tune out the world. However, one airline is nixing a perk that customers and travel blogs say is one of their favorites.

American Airlines will no longer be providing its customers with complimentary Bose noise-canceling headphones. These headphones are beloved by first and international business class fliers because of their superior ability to muffle the noise of the plane and cabin.

The carrier has explained that it will be replacing the premium Bose Quiet Comfort headphones with a Bang & Olufsen model. These headphones retail for about $500 and are still considered very high quality, but customers are lamenting the loss of their complimentary Bose gear.
