Airlines cut costs with eco-wash

I guess charging earphones and checked-in baggages; starving their customers; and removing in-flight magazines, are not enough to compensate for skyrocketing jet fuel costs for airline companies.

They are now turning their attention to using more efficient engine washing system that could save millions of dollars of jet fuel costs, according to commercial jet engines service provider Pratt & Whitney.

The company said it is now providing its EcoPower engine wash system to United Airlines and Southwest Airlines. The system also reduces carbon dioxide emissions.
