And y’all thought I was angry over US Airways charging for water? Well, now it’s personal. About a week ago I booked a transatlantic flight on United, flying out of Washington Dulles (IAD).
Today I read… - United Airlines, struggling to curb losses from record fuel prices, will become the first U.S. carrier to stop serving free meals in the coach cabin of some overseas flights.
Instead, the second-largest U.S. carrier will offer food that can be purchased aboard trips to Europe from Washington’s Dulles International Airport starting Oct. 1, spokeswoman Robin Urbanski said today in an interview.
I’m paying about $1400 (round trip) and I’m not even going to get a hot meal? Instead I’m going to drag along a tired cold sandwich?
And they think this is a good idea?
Isn’t there any US-based airline that understand the words “Passenger Satisfaction”?
Apparently not. Perhaps it’s time for us to fly only foreign airlines. You know, the airlines that know how to treat passengers as paying guests.
What do you think?
UPDATE: Read United has a change of heart
