US Airways puts kibosh on snacks

June 01, 2008|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Fliers, let go of the pretzels and peanuts.

In what could be the ultimate cost-cutting move by airlines buffeted by sky-high fuel prices, US Airways said it would eliminate free snacks in coach class on all its domestic flights starting today.

US Airways spokesman Morgan Durrant said the move to cut free snacks was needed to save money in a time of skyrocketing fuel prices.

The airline will still provide complimentary soft drinks.
