USAirways on-board food sales goes systemwide today. Food will be for sale in coach on most flights over 700 miles and the menus will rotate mid-month. First Class passengers, in most cases, will just get the buy-on-board meals free.
Hopefully the implementation will be better than the test-stages on most carriers have been — both in terms of food quality and sales process. One stumbling block for travelers so far has been receipts. On United’s test, the meals came with a pre-printed receipt that didn’t include a date or any other form of verification — insufficient for many corporate accounting departments to provide a reimbursement.
