New Short-Haul Y "Snackbox" Concept On OS

Fri Nov 16, 2007 1:25 am

Hey Everyone-

I was just on Austrian's website and the new DO&CO Snackbox concept for Short-haul flights in Y was featured. The design of the packaging looks quite appealing, but I was wondering if anybody by chance knew what the contents are like? The website advertises it as being a product of DO&CO, a reputable Austrian caterer- as such, I would expect the contents to be beyond the typical Sandwich+Candy Bar formula seen on so many short haul European flights in Y.

Thanks!
Nick

urgh... I sincerely hope it's better than the joke of a "snack box" you get on the longer DL flights...

best thing on the DL ones is the "ENJOY" printed all over the thing.... every time I get one of those I can't help the thought of some designer having been very sarcastic....  Wink

Let's hope it won't become as infamous as the Alisnack box on AZ.  Wink

At the beginning of the year I was flying ZRH-VIE and vv. once a week. I always liked the snack box. Food was much better then the chees sandwich on LX.
Fall 2016: ZRH-TLV-ZRH on A3 or LX in Y, ZRH-LCY-ZRH on LX in Y
Spring 2017: ZRH-LCY-ZRH-SFO-LAS-LAX-ZRH on LX in Y,C and F

I had the snack box VIE-FRA on OS in June and it could never be confused with the US Domestic carriers. It was very well done.

We tend to have a very dry sense of humor, not much different than the ham sandwiches that the snack boxes replaced.  Wink

Least Euro airlines give a Sandwich and not a load of salted garbage and bird seeds like some US domestic carriers.
