Does anyone know whether the godiva chocolate is in godiva packaging or whether it is personalised with the UAL logo?????
I'm interested because I work for a company producing Belgian chocolate printed with airline logos on the packaging!!! It's very interesting news for us as Godiva have quite a stranglehold on the 1st class market!

I guess it shouldn't be that surprising. When cost-cuts need to be made, in-flight service always takes a hit. Many airlines chose to cut back in their premium cabins before coach, which I find a rather questionable decision.
I remember when they used to offer Godiva chocolates in trans-con Business Class. I suppose those are gone too?

With all the ways airlines waste money, reduced service to the 12 highest yield passengers on the aircraft is ridiculous. This is definitely a decision made by some bean counter who spends way to much time studying charts and graphs etc. The person sitting in that international first class seat can afford to buy all the Godiva chocolates they need, what the airline needs to do is convince them they value their business.

Not that they don't get a hefty discount from Godiva, but extrapolate the number of boxes of Godiva that they'd need to buy each day for each of their international flights for both First Class and Business Class...remember, the smallest number in Business is 32, the largest at 123.

Re: Delta's chocolates, the Godiva's served on domestic flights are not mints, as was posted. I have had them on quite a few flights since I began my internship here, and they are dark chocolate squares. Very good, though - I don't usually like dark chocolate. The Neuhaus Belgian Chocolates in Business Elite are very good, also, and are served by letting passengers select from the box. The domestic Godivas are individually wrapped and no selection, just dark.
