NUTS. Pretzels too, or the shrinking snack


US Airways has been filling its employee newsletter with word of its shrinking workforce. It’s not firing people, but it’s encouraging its workers to lose weight by eating better and exercising. In fact, one employee has lost 9.7 pounds so far and another, 8 pounds, while one Charlotte maintenance guy lost 118 pounds over 13 months. This is very impressive, and now US Airways is trying to help its passengers lose weight. As of June 1, it will no longer serve pretzels or any other complimentary snacks on board domestic coach.

At American Airlines, where they aren’t cutting out food, they are raising prices. Fresh sandwiches and liquor will go from $5 to $6 effective June 1 as well. On a related but really rather different note, we are pleased to note that Airline Meals, the Internet’s leading page with pictures of food served on board, says it will be up and running again soon.
