Detroit News: NW: No more free domestic pretzels



So now Northwest is going to rely on the snack pack. Is this a cut too far? Over my flying life I have gotten used to the snack and a beverage service. I am sure most others have as well. Will this be a cut that might cost Northwest some customers? I know some will say deal with it, but this has been a constant service on many airliners. I think many will get a bad taste and on flights where there is an alternative, they will take it. This is a bad move in my opinion by Northwest.  irked   redflag

Not everyone is cutting snack service, and for an airline that has billions in revenue to cut something that costs 2 million a year, I think the 10,000 passengers or so that it will cost them , will more than help make up for the savings.

This is a good move on the part of NW. Most of the time the pretzels that
get handed out either end up on the floor or in the seat back pocket.

"Passengers instead can buy a 3-ounce bag of trail mix for $1."

Okay, so why doesn't NW simply tack on a buck or two to the ticket price, continue to offer a "free" snack, and avoid a public relations mess?

Instead of charging $354.40 for a roundtrip ticket between DTW and LAX, make it $356.40 and hand out trail mix on the flight out there and back.

I am sure it is because tickets are purchased primarily on price, not on the product. Since it is lowly rated by in opinion polls, relatively few people would make NW their first choice anyway, they might as well cut back service to Ryanair levels. Cutting the pretzels and drinks might allow them to reduce the number of FAs and less trash will be left, allowing for a reduction in cleaning staff. Do they have pillows and blankets? Are they going to do a People Express and charge for coffee?

This is how I am starting to feel.
All the people that defend the legacies need to realize, that they are becoming worse than LCC for those that ride coach.

Is there any diffrence between the service on legacies and LCC's these days? Have we fianlly reached the point where airline service has been standardized across the board. Besides the lack of assigned seats I can't tell the diffrence between NW and WN.

Maybe as a form of protest, travelers using NW should order a bunch of Spinzels' pretzels on-line (you can get a bag of 30 - 2 oz. bags.) and bring them with you. The cost per bag (from Spinzels' website) is probably cheaper than what NW would charge for its trailmix. Heck, you could sell the extra bags to fellow travelers for 25 or 30 cents while waiting to board.

In other news, the Spinzels factory furloughed 200 employees (Keebler elves?  Wink ) on news that their largest contract, NW, was to stop offering pretzels.

You go to a restaurant and the only thing on the menu that is free (at least in the US) is a glass of water, that's about it.

This is not totally correct- The pretzels are ONLY discontinued on flights that offer a snack box during the flight- ie 2 1/2 + hours. All other flights (1000's a day) still serve the pretzels in coach.... I really don't understand the complaints anyway- most pax hand them back, leave them in the seat back pockets, or just act disgusted. I guess you can't please everybody, no matter what!!!  Wink

2 million dollars is 2 million dollars, but in the airline world of decreasing service is it worth it to cut out something as simple as pretzels? Something passangers come to enjoy if not just for the novelty. I don't need a meal. I don't even need a meal on a coast to coast flight, but jack my ticket price up one dollar, don't tell me about it, and give me my pretzels.
