    Food For Thought: American Airlines Announces Food-For-Sale Tests

    American Airlines wants to know what pleases the appetites of its Economy Class travelers, so beginning today the airline is conducting buy-on-board food tests of new breakfast, lunch and snack items on domestic flights.

    "American Airlines consistently asks our customers about what they prefer, and we enhance our food-for-sale program accordingly," said John Tiliacos, American's Managing Director - Onboard Products. "We are committed to providing the products and services our customers value."

    Throughout April, American will conduct three tests of buy-on-board food options.

    --  TEST 1:  Available for $5 on all flights three hours or longer and departing before 10 a.m., customers will have the option to purchase breakfast featuring Special K® cereal, 2 percent milk, fruit cup and granola bar.

Rustica chicken and turkey and swiss will be available depending on direction of travel.
