Snack Attack at 20,000 Feet

Would you pay $3 for this? American Airlines, perhaps making lemonade from the lemons of stricter regulations about carry-on luggage, has announced that it’s currently conducting a one-week tryout for a new program to sell snacks and bottled water to passengers. Hooray! Now we don’t have to wait until the plane lands at the airport to satisfy our craving for overpriced junk food —we can buy it right on the flight.

American won’t be phasing out its beverage service or existing food options, just testing the new snacks.

Of course, being able to purchase Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, potato chips, and bottles of water may be a boon to passengers who have had their H2O and carry-on picnic confiscated by security.

If you’re flying American this week, make sure to buy a Twix for me.
