Re: The new domestic service standard: just water. DL now onboard.

I am flying on AS from CMH to SEA on Saturday. Before the one stop in MSP was added, food options stated "food for purchase". Now with the stop in MSP added and the flight being 6+ hours, the food option states "Lunch, Snack".

Does anyone know what AS is doing?

2. When flying AA will I be receiving 1 mile per mile flown just as I would be if I was flying with AS?
