    American Airlines Announces New Food-for-Sale Choices

    To offer customers new choices in snacks and beverages, American Airlines announced today changes to the items available in its Economy Class food-for-sale program. American also said it will begin testing several new beverages on its flights over the next three months.

    Beginning Saturday, March 1, the featured food-for-sale products on flights departing before 10 a.m. will include GNS Vanilla Honey Trail Mix and Mega Bite® Chocolate Chunk Cookies for $3 each. On flights departing after 10 a.m., Lay's Stax® Potato Crisps, American's best-selling item, also will be available for $3.

    "As part of our focus on improving the customer experience, American Airlines regularly reviews our food-for-sale program to ensure our customers have choice and variety," said John Tiliacos, American's Managing Director - Onboard Products. "We're pleased to incorporate new selections and test various products to refine our food-for-sale program."

    Beverage Tests

    American will test three specialty beverages on all food-for-sale flights through May 31. Available for $3, the test will feature Lipton Green Tea with Citrus, vitaminwater and smartwater. Each test will be conducted for one month:

    -- March 1-31: 20 oz. Lipton Green Tea with Citrus 
    -- April 1-30: 20 oz. vitaminwater 
    -- May 1-31: 20 oz. smartwater

    American launched its food-for-sale program in early 2005 with the goal of providing quality food items for purchase in the Economy Class cabin. Today, the program is available on more than 1,400 domestic flights of two hours or greater.

    American, a founding member of the global oneworld® Alliance, accepts American Express® Cards and all major credit and debit cards for onboard purchases. Receipts are provided to passengers upon request.

    Food-for-sale items may vary on American Eagle and AmericanConnection flights.
