American, Meals, United

Free snacks coming back on American and UnitedPhiladelphia Inquirer
American is following United in matching Delta by having snacks onboard in coach again. My quote here about airlines competing on more than price is my main takeaway from all this. But the part about Hawaiian was more of an off-hand discussion that ended up being included as well.

It seemed like kind of a funny article since domestic one way pricing in low cost carrier markets isn’t a new trend, but I was happy to speak with her about it. What’s funny is that it quotes me as saying people should book direct instead of through an agent. What I actually said was to book direct versus using an online travel agent.

  1. As long as UA doesn’t bring back those stupid mustard pretzels with that yellow powder that got all over everything, people will be happy.

  2. I had my first Stroopwafel the other day – kicks the Biscoff’s booty. Also loving the ability to pick an item from the Choice Menu + a cocktail as 1K/GS. Little things go a long way.

  3. Those waffle things are horrendous! I was starving but threw it away after one bite. Maybe a 4 yr old would like this sickeningly sweet object but only maybe. Biscoffs were fantastic.
