    The major airlines may be cutting back on everything from food to pillows, but a couple of low-cost carriers actually are adding some perks.

    On Tuesday, AirTran Airways will roll out the first of its planes equipped with free XM Satellite Radio, which carries 100-plus channels, most of them commercial-free. The airline expects to have service on board all aircraft by the end of summer. To publicize it, AirTran is sticking giant decals of singer Elton John's mug on a handful of its planes.

    Meanwhile, JetBlue Airways is in the process of upping its DIRECTV channels from 24 to 36 and will add two pay-per-view movie channels by month's end. It also will install larger TV monitors and XM Satellite Radio fleet-wide by the end of the year.
