This might be the most useless post of the day, but for a moment I thought I was flying on Southwest when the flight attendant on this morning’s United flight just handed me a snack before beverage service:
I was a bit confused because it has been ages since United offered complimentary snacks to passengers flying in the back, but then I realized that today is the first day of this luxury.
In early December of last year, United announced that they will be bringing back the free snacks. Here’s a bit of what you can expect on your next United flight:
Customers on flights departing before 9:45 a.m. will receive a morning stroopwafel – a Dutch, caramel-filled waffle that pairs perfectly with coffee or tea, as shown on UnitedAirtime.com.
Flights departing after 9:45 a.m. will offer packaged savory snacks, such as an Asian-style snack mix of rice crackers, sesame sticks and wasabi peas or a zesty-ranch mix of mini pretzel sticks, Cajun corn sticks and ranch soy nuts.
In a ridiculous way, I guess I can say I’m “honored” to be one of the first recipients of such a treat. Rejoice free food!
