I do wonder how this will affect on-board service when things will return to normal.
In-flight service in US3 Main Cabins was (slowly) improving over the past several years. We saw:
-AA/UA resumed serving cocktail snacks during the beverage service
-DL resumed free alcoholic beverages (including liquor) on international flights
-AA/UA resume free wine/beer on international flights
-DL introduced amenity kits in Y
-DL resumed an "enhanced snack"/meal service (I wouldn't really call it a full meal, more like the "Snack" service that 2 hour flights would have in Y pre-9/11 days) on a number on transcontinental routes
-AA resumed an "enhanced snack"/meal service on JFK-LAX/SFO and ORD/DFW-Hawaii runs.
-DL resumed meal service on Hawaii-ATL/Midwest runs
-UA was trialing an "enhanced snack"/meal service on Hawaii flights as well as trialing amenities in Y on intercontinental flights (why a trial was needed for both of those I am not sure)
I am willing to bet once everything stabilizes and things return to normal a number of these services are eliminated. IIRC WN took pillows/blankets away during H1N1 and promised to bring them back once things normalized...but they never did make a return.
