Snack Mix

Mon Aug 02, 1999 11:07 pm

What is this "Snack Mix" people have been talking about? Is it peanuts? I have some Airtran Snack Mix, but I do not want to open it. Also, does COMAIR serve meals on long flights? Like CVG-NAS (Nassau Bahamas). Also, what is the service like on USAir?

Lets talk about our experiences on Northwest and Valujet. I have had great experiences with Northwest. They serve meals on MSY-DTW routes. I have never flown with Valujet. But I do have a "Good Times" magizine I got when they served Mobile. I asked the gate agent and they gave me one.

Delta Airlines' "snack mix" (tastes like dog food pellets), consists of rasins, mini-pretzels, some type of cheese flavored routes, and peanuts. It's disgusting. Comair? Serving meals?? I HIGHLY doubt it. Even on a CVG-NAS flight, they would only serve snack mix. They are a very stingy airline.

Sounds like it's what they find down the sides of the seats at the end of each flight.

Reno Air was always known for "interesting" snack mixes. They sometimes came with softwhere coupons, or advertisements. At Christmas they would come with some tiny little catalog for Delise, the company that their nuts were from. They said their products were from a centuries old French recipe (and that could only mean about two centuries), but they still tasted awful. They were some stupid honey roasted peanuts.
They were really disgusting. But, then they came up with some really nice mix of pretzels, brazil nuts, cashews, and cheese crackers. But, then Reno went back to those dumb honey roasted peanuts. I mean...people are just as allergic to honey roasted peanuts as they are to regular!

FlyCMH describes the snack mix they served me on the US Airways Shuttle. On weekends, they no longer serve snacks, just a drink and a bag of pretzels, peanuts, or the above-described snack mix.

Sorry, That's Supposed To Be Rodes, Not Routes! Nt

UsAir = US Airways

Hey Colin!

UsAir is now US Airways and they are still fling as the same airline. I have never flown them although I want to and look forward to someday. They have a nice paint scheme according to me.

I have a question too. Did UsAir change its name to US Airways for sophistication or because it wanted to hide its bad safety record?

You wanted to also talk about our Northwest experiences, so let me give you my NORTHWORST experience. Northworst has lost my best friends luggage TWICE!!! By some act of God, it was returned to him. My dad has missed several connecting flights because there has been mechanical problems with aircraft. Northworst kept its planes out on the tarmac in that horrible snow storm this winter. I always have to wait at least an hour to get my luggage after a Northworst flight. I could go on and on and on...
