News

Now, United Airlines passengers enjoy their selection of three complimentary in-flight snack items in economy class, regardless of departure time. Previously, in-flight complimentary snack offerings were rotated, with snacks changing on flights departing after 9:45 a.m.

Passengers now choose between Byrd’s Maple Wafers, pretzels and the beloved stroopwafels no matter when they fly.

The change does not impact the items for purchase on select flights, including the Choice Menu Snack and Bistro on Board items.

“Since we reintroduced free snacks a few years ago, our customers have come to look forward to enjoying their personal favorites on board — whether it be the stroopwafel, our exclusive maple wafers or the classic pretzels,” said Toby Enqvist, chief customer officer, United. “Now we’re going a step further and when it comes to snacks, every customer wins since our entire inflight snack lineup is available to choose from no matter the time of day.”

Germany Discusses Doubling Air Travel Tax
