American Airlines Testing "For Sale Food Options"

In an attempt to turn their planes into flying concession stands, American Airlines will be testing several new “for sale food options” this holiday travel season (on select flights only.)

Yes, you too may have the privilege of paying $3 for the following snacks:

Week One:
Nov. 5 through Nov. 11 – 6.5 oz. Starbucks doubleshot Espresso & Cream

Week Two:
Nov. 12 through Nov. 18 – 16.9 oz. FUZE(R) Green Tea

Week Three:
Nov 19 through Nov. 25 – 20 oz. vitaminwater power-c and 2.4 oz. CLIF Bar Chocolate Brownie Energy Bars.

No offense, but according to internet grocer FreshDirect, we can have a Chocolate Brownie Energy CLIF Bar thing delivered to our house right now for $1.50. Just saying.

American Airlines is also testing a $10 fruit and cheese plate from Dec. 3 – Dec. 8. That had better be some psychotically good cheese for $10. Like, amazing restaurant-type cheese. We’d better be on our death bed talking about the time we had cheese on a flight to San Francisco. (Yes, perhaps we are cheap, but if we’re going to pay $10 for cheese it won’t be because we were extorted on an airplane.)
