JetBlue: We Won't Be Stingy On The Free Snacks Anytime Soon

Last week, we brought you the sad news that the two-headed beast of United/Continental had decided that coach passengers don’t deserve free pretzels. It seems inevitable that this “luxury” is doomed to extinction, but JetBlue says it has no intention of killing off its gratis inflight snacks.

“JetBlue remains committed to offering free, unlimited brand name snacks to all customers,” a rep for the company tells Consumerist.

The relatively young airline helped to make its name, in part, by offering a decent selection of food during a time when competitors like Delta and Continental were paring down their free grub to paltry peanuts and pretzels.

In recent years, United, American and U.S. Airways dropped free snacks completely from most domestic routes.
