Those following the cash-strapped airline industry had to know this day was coming.
In the latest cost-cutting move by a major U.S. carrier, U.S. Airways is eliminating free snacks from its flights starting June 1.
Those snacks cost $.03 per passenger, as posted by the Consumerist.
The airline is already charging fees for a second checked bag and preferred seating — window or aisle seats — on all of its flights.
Of course, this begs the question whether anyone will care. I mean, how good were these roasted peanuts and small Rold Gold pretzel packages anyway?
I’m looking forward, though, to the airline’s report about how much this move will save them.
