What kind of meal and on-board amenities will I receive?

During your flight, we certainly hope that you are comfortable as possible. For domestic U.S. flights, a regular meal service is generally no longer offered for passengers in the economy cabin. Airlines may offer snack and beverage service based on flight length. Soft drinks, coffee, water, and juices are typically complimentary while alcoholic beverages, snacks, and light meals may be offered for a nominal fee.

All passengers are invited to visit airport concessions to bring food purchases on board.

International “long-haul” flights may offer expanded meal service in the economy cabin. If you have a special dietary requirement (kosher, vegetarian, etc.) please let us know so that we may request an appropriate meal for you. Of course, it will still be an airline meal – so you still might want to pack your own snack!

Your airline may offer a variety of on-board entertainment and amenities such as: wifi, movies, television, music, pillows and blankets. Some items are complimentary; others can be purchased while on board. For good measure, you might want to pack a book, newspaper, pen, and I-pod to round out your entertainment options.
