    We (I) have been working very hard around our house to live more frugally. But at some point the airlines have to realize that once you start to take the “perks” away, you start to lose customers. It becomes a trade off of customer service or more profits, can peanuts really cost that much.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but unless you’ve been flying Delta lately, you haven’t been getting peanuts for years anyways. Because most airlines did away with peanuts due to the increasing numbers of people with deadly peanut allergies (for most, even peanut dust in the air in an enclosed environment like an airplane will cause an allergic reaction – up to anaphylaxis.)

    As both sister to and mom to people with deadly peanut allergies, I was thrilled not to have to deal with it – we haven’t flown Delta since they reinstated peanuts.

    Still, I get your point… but they said the same thing about getting rid of ‘meals’ on every flight.

    It will be interesting to see where the airline industry is a few years from now and if there will ever be a turn around in how we fly.

    @ geekmommy:
    I think the term used in US Air’s press release was actually something like ‘packaged snacks’. Many airlines have made the switch from peanuts to pretzels or even chex-mix like snacks. Many people (yourself included) were glad for the switch from peanuts due to allergy concerns. I wrote peanuts in the article as a stereotypical reference to packaged snacks on flights. Thanks for the clarification and comment, and welcome to HB!

    @ Karen:
    I fully agree. I think it’s reached a point of no return and that major industry-wide overhaul is impending. We can forcast all we want, but I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see! lol

    I think the industry with straighten out – at least I hope so since I am a pilots wife :). Just something to think about though – studies show that passengers pay less to fly now than we did 20+ years ago. One first hand example I can use is that my dad used to pay $350-$450 every summer for me to visit him – and he paid $199 this year. Too much competition really – and the airlines are going under to compete. The public wants more (no overbooking, snacks, more room, scedules, etc) but no one wants to pay for it.
