I got to experience that for the first time last weekend. Himalayan Popcorn and the turkey sticks are my two new favorite things. They offered me some of that in October also but I didn't know so I turned it down.

Those snack basket coconut dusted cashews are super good and always my first go-to!

To be fair, that's what a classic Old Fashioned is: whiskey, bitters, and a sugar cube (or some granulated sugar) served over ice.

Thats my typical combo as well, although I usually take the Kind bar to go.

Meanwhile the margarita isn't bad. I suggest a splash of fizzy water and a lime packet.

I liked it much more than the old fashioned.

I tried both on LAX-SJO this past weekend and enjoyed the old fashioned but found the margarita much too sweet, even after letting much of the ice melt. Ms. Plainsman enjoyed the margarita, however, so I'm glad AS added both!

Can now confirm that FAs have no problem serving you more than one as long as you aren't being a slosh. Myself and my co-worker sitting next to me both had multiple servings of the Old Fashioned. Very boozy, but good.

Just did LAX-SFO, and Peatos were missing from the F snack basket. When I asked about it, FA was apologetic and mentioned that they didn't carry them anymore.

I'd be happy if they just replaced them with REAL Cheetos

You'd be happy with Wonder Bread and Miracle Whip

I am liking those little Kind bars for a nice semi-sweet and not horribly bad for you snack.
