Disappointment On American Airlines Over Disappearing Jerky


American Airlines First Class Snack Baskets have been “upgraded” much to the dismay of frequent fliers. The new domestic First Class morning snack basket will include: 180 Snacks Almond Rice Pops w/Cranberries (5); Java Up Caramel Macchiato Coffee Fueled Energy Bar (4); Peterson’s Sea Salted Mixed Nuts (5); Kitchun No-Grain-Ola Holy-Coco-Cacao (4); Rip Van Wafels Dutch Caramel & Vanilla Wafel (4); MadeGood Mixed Berry Granola Bar (5).

Described by one flyer as “highly processed sugar-laden bleached rubbish.” (HT: View From The Wing) the main failure of this basket is the lack of quality and variety as well as the removal of the beef jerky.

Also on April 10 a new premium cabin PM Snack Basket launches and will include: Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt Popcorn (4); Boulder Canyon Sea Salt Kettle Cooked Chips (5); Mrs. Thinster’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Thins (3); Peterson’s Sea Salted Mixed Nuts (5); Blue Diamond Hint of Sea Salt Mini Nut Thins (4); Kopper’s Milk & Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Bites (4); Love, Corn Smoked BBQ Corn Nuts.

Although I am not a fan of any of the products in this basket, the lack of beef jerky has caused an outcry. Personally, I would like to see a proper snack like the lunch served in British Airways Club Europe and pictured above. None of these processed snacks float my boat and I’m not alone!
