Flew on AA's first flight of the season from LAX-EGE (Vail) nonstop. Flight was very smooth and quick, but I was very surprised to find out that AA has stopped offering milk on their beverage service. All part of cost-cutting, I guess. But Milk??? How much could that possibly save them?

It was probably there, just not part of one of their regular selections. Two reasons I say this, the first of course is children, and the second is for coffee. Before anybody says the artificial creamers will suffice for one cup, artificial creamers contain corn syrup. Until I had a passenger tell me that she was allergic to corn and could not use the artificial product, I didn't know either.

United Shuttle also cut milk a while ago for cost purposes, as well as for other onboard reasons (while still making it available for coffee). It really does make sense to cut milk for (mainly lunch and dinner flights) galley packing purposes. By cutting milk, they can enhance their offering of other, more requested beverages.

You are right, milk has been cut in main cabin on all non transcon, non IFS flights that depart from 10A on. Half and Half has also been removed from first class on all flights, non dairy creamer is the substitute.

This shrewd move is clearly designed to stimulate traffic from the largely untapped "lactose-intolerant" market.  Big grin

Undoubtedly it's a predatory move on AirTran, Southwest, jetBlue, Pan Am, and Southeast.
