BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- If airline passengers want comfort, perks and entertainment during their trip, they'll need to treat their trip like a restaurant without a liquor license and bring their own.It's been a banner month for the beleaguered U.S. flier, as rising fuel prices prompted American Airlines (AMR) to raise round-trip fares by $10 -- a figure fellow network airline lemmings United (UAL), U.S. Airways (LCC), Delta (DAL) and Continental will almost certainly match -- for the major airlines' seventh fare hike of the year. For those counting at home, that's a fare increase every $10 days.
