Good bye airline food - American and TWA

From the San Jose Mercury News today:

"Both carriers said by Nov. 1 they will stop serving meals in the main cabin on most domestic flights, in an effort to cut costs as the U.S. airline industry loses millions of dollars a day in the wake of last week's airplane attacks.

The two airlines will also chuck the chow in first-class on domestic flights of two hours or less.

The airlines said elimination of meals includes flights to Canada, Mexico, Hawaii, the Caribbean and two-class services to Central and South America.

American, which on Wednesday said it would cut at least 20,000 jobs to stave off slowing air traffic, will still provide meals in all classes of its domestic nonstop transcontinental flights and its international flights to Europe, Asia and South America. All flights will still have beverages, along with a beverage accompaniment, presumably peanuts or pretzels.
