Attention, holiday travelers: Dining on the go doesn’t have to result in an overpriced, soggy chicken Caesar wrap balanced precariously on your knees at the gate or greasy fast food. New handy airport guides for many of the country’s airports are doing the heavy lifting for you, so you can get a break from giant hot pretzels (if you want to, that is).
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.
Continental and new spouse United Airlines have begun to decide which of their pre-marriage belongings to keep and which to discard. One thing that has already gone in the dumpster: free snacks in coach.
When we travel, we do our best to avoid eating at the airport, where the cuisine is always overpriced and often overcooked. But the globetrotters at Frommer’s say that there are at least 10 quality eateries located inside our nation’s airports.
