Flying economy doesn't have to be miserable

For those willing to shell out just a little extra, several à la carte services offer experiences usually reserved for First Class passengers.

Parking at the airport

Premium parking is available at many airports around the country, but some are combining technology and new driving habits.

A new Park 'N Fly indoor luxury valet lot serving the Nashville International Airport opened this month, and the service includes a climate-controlled parking facility and door-to-door shuttle service. The company teamed up with text message service Zingle, giving customers the ability to text when they land so their car will be ready and waiting. Fliers at the Atlanta, Ga., international airport enjoy these perks, as well as pet boarding and Jiffy Lube services.

Premium parking is also available at the Indianapolis Airport, which includes complimentary plug-in stations for electric vehicles, as well as valet parking, a newspaper and bottled water. Rates start at $22.00 per day.
