Airtran has begun testing with buy on board between LA and Atl. Just wondering if anyone has had these snacks on these flights and if they were any good?

I think anything would be an improvement over the small bag of pretzels that they serve.

I haven't seen anything on their website about this.

This seems like it will be common practice. F9 just started charging for snacks. Slightly more expensive than the snacks I can get out of the vending machines at work, but the bag of chips or whatever are a little bigger, so maybe it evens out. Unfotunately, it's getting to the point of having to nickel and dime people just to keep up with operating costs, but I can't blame them. Anyone remember American Eagle flights in CA were charging a dollar a soda and also charging for blankets and pillows? I don't think it lasted long, but I remember hearing about it and I was beginning to wonder if we were going to have to start doing it on our Amercian Connection flights. Luckily, no.

I was just on AirTrans website yesterday to look up some ticket prices and I didn't see anyhting about this either. Then again it wasn't my priority either. I tell you, once you get spoiled for flying with the airlines and can pretty much go where you and your immediate family want to go as long as their are open seats, and now I have to pay for a ticket, really sucks. If I were still single I woulndn't have any problem paying for a ticket now I have to lug around a wife and two kids, one of which is finally old enough I have to buy a ticket for her, and the second one is getting to be that age real soon. Wait, if I didn't have kids, I'd still be flying!

I prefer to buy on the ground and carry my food aboard. Better selection and better prices. And I can eat when I'm hungry, not when they feel like serving it.

I only buy aboard if I haven't been able to buy on the ground.

From what i hear it is just a snack box for around 5 bucks, nothing that requires refrig. or anything.

Even cheaper is if you buy food outside the airport, just make sure you don't have a drink. Even cheaper, go to a dollar store and get a sleeve of crackers, a can of vienna sausages or potted meat (that's poor man's pate, if you don't mind). A can of sardines would be cool too, but only use that if you have a really obnoxious seat mate. Now that is good and cheap eating there! What would really be cool if you were to do that in either "budiness" class or first class.

On a side note, if you ever go on a wine probe, as a joke take a sleeve of crackers, a pack of sliced cheese, and a can of potted meat. If you're really redneck enough and you are visiting Virginia's wine country, take along some fried shad roe instead of caviar.
