Here is a report on the certain US Airlines that serve some on board snack boxes and how many calories they are and how long it would take to walk them off. Also juding on the tastes of the food. The report was done because of the airline food that they used to serve without paying that would be so unhealthy. Now they are charging the $5 for your snack box. Good article and does give a bit of praise to CO and B6 for not charging for the boxes.

Airlines in question...AA, US, DL, CO, and UA

Also does a report on LAX, MSP, and MCO

Actually you find the complete report at http://www.dietdetective.com. Search for airline snacks in the search bar.

Thanks. I'm not surprised UA scored the best marks in that survey. I found their spinach (I think it was) snack on a LAX-HNL flight very filling and very nice.

Another excellent reason to fly UA

Their report on Delta is not accurate ...

The snacks Delta provides on short flights are free, as are the "Enjoy" snack boxes provided on longer flights.

Looks like CO provided them with the snacks for COex, not for the mainline. Mainline has hot sandwiches, likely with much more fat. I'm sure the cheeseburger is a doozy, and the cheesesteak is no better. but they do fill you up...

Well, the moral of the story is that if you want a report to be accurate, you should cooperate instead of being obstructionist. After all, CO was able to easily confuse these intrepid investigators by being super helpful...  Wink

But they pretty much got the contents of an enjoy pack right, except they have cheese in them. It's all cookies and crackers...



Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

one of those might tide you over for a bit, but it's not much more filling than the normal snack service.

The moral is simple : if you don't want to be hungry, either book in first, or bring food on with you.

I really miss DL's buy-on-board program ... they use Atlanta Bread Company sandwiches and they were damned good.

Priced comparably to a sandwich in the terminal, and the drinks are free onboard, so you actually come out ahead.

If they fully implement the "Song" product back into mainline, they will probably resume some sort of BoB program, I'd guess ...

Provided Doug doesn't get his way, of course ...

The cheeseburger on CO is not that bad tasting. I had one last night. On some flights they also serve a personal sized cheese pizza, which also does not taste bad.

With the meal they also serve a small salad and a "Fun Size" candy bar.
