AA to Bring Back Widely-Loathed Perk

On Tuesday, American Airlines announced that it would be reintroducing free meals for economy-class passengers on select flights between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) starting May 1. The carrier said that complimentary meals will give customers a choice between a continental breakfast box, a sandwich/wrap, a fruit-and-cheese plate, or a vegetarian option.

“Providing complimentary meals in the Main Cabin is yet another step we’re taking to enhance our service in this competitive market,” said American Airlines Vice President Fernand Fernandez.

The move echoes a similar policy by Delta Air Lines, who last month announced complimentary main-cabin meals beginning in March.

From reading the HuffPo article, it is evident that it is intended as a joke. (Everybody remembers all of the jokes about aeroplane food) Although that is not at all evident in the FT version of the story.

How the hell is free food a "Widely Loathed Perk"? Perfect example of the vapid garbage that comes out of the "journalists" at huffpo.

WOW - Flyertalk writers just can't say ANYTHING nice, positive about AA, other US full service carriers, have to find some way to find the cloud in the silver lining. Do they all receive payments from Southwest?

The meals will also be on SFO. This is obviously in direct response to Delta's move.
