Fly Tip of the Day

If you want nuts, don't fly Northworst--I mean, Northwest. Not only do they serve Pepsi products (how dare they), they also don't serve ANY snacking mechanism on most flights, but will "conveniently" charge you $3 for a "snack caddy." On top of your already expensive fare.

Like, seriously. As a PR person, I understand this. Just add $3 to my fare and give me the danged snack caddy. Because it looks WAY better than charging me the same $3 on the plane. It makes the airline look cheap.

I just flew Northwest to Kansas City and guess what? No Peanuts!

I love the way you commented Jay before the tip was posted! :-)

BTW everyone...make a wish...11:11 post time.

True, they don't serve nuts, prezels, or any other snack foods, but they were the ones who gave me my emergency fare last week, cutting a $1000 flight to less than $300. So, for situations such as that, leave them open as an option.

We flew them because they were the cheapest too, and with almost everyone choosing flights because of initial price, I can see why they don't want to be $3 more expensive then the next guy. However, it is very good to know not the expect food on those flights, and you can be prepared. Those $3 things aren't enough to fill you up anyway, so if they would have disguised those as an actual meal I would have been even more mad and more importantly HUNGRY.

Not to dash anyone's expectations, but um... I'm pretty sure an airline meal has never filled me up.

And I would gladly pay an extra $100, $200, nay, even $500 for the privilidge of drinking Pepsi products. ;)
