Flying With US Air? Bring Your Own Snacks

Traveling is about to get harder for parents.

If you are planning to travel via the US Airways Group, bring your own snacks because the airline announced today that it will eliminate free snacks in coach class on all its domestic flights starting June 1st.

US Airways spokesman Morgan Durrant said the move to cut free snacks was needed to save money in a time of extremely high fuel costs. The price of jet fuel has soared this year with crude oil prices in the $130-per-barrel range.

The good news? Thirsty family members will still be able to have a complimentary soft drinks. Well at least for the next month…

My Tip: Fly Jetblue! Our family prefers the larger seats, great service and personal TV’s.

During our trip to Puerto Rico in February we were offered a multitude of snacks and beverages. The staff didn’t bat an eyelash when I asked for an extra bag of yummy cookies. In fact they came through the cabin twice with snacks and beverages during our flight from JFK to San Juan. LOVE IT!!
