U.S. Airways: Goodbye to those salty peanuts

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.

What strange things have been found on planes?
