Mmm, Biscoff cookies. If you’re flying United these days, these cookies are about the only thing that differentiates the airline from American or Northwest (if you aren’t in Economy Plus). Apparently, they’ve now decided that they’re giving you way too much food on each flight, so they’re cutting back.
On August 7 the airline decided to start handing out 5 oz. packages instead of the previous super-sized 9 oz. ones. I, for one, am glad to see United doing its part to fight the growing obesity problem in the US. Those 9 oz. packages were destroying our children and raising healthcare costs. It’s about time someone stood up and tried to save us.
Oh wait, that’s right. This is just another way to cut costs. *sigh*
UPDATE 8/23 @ 944a: I believe that may actually be .5 oz down from .9 oz. 5 oz would be one big cookie.
