Pre-Order Meal Reservations in Economy Class on Alaska Airlines Flights
Alaska Airlines is testing on a trial basis the ability for you to order and reserve a meal before your flight from Seattle to seven select destinations in the United States from now through November 30, 2013 — and with one exception, all meals cost $6.00.
The meals being offered for $6.00 are the following:
Flights from Seattle to Atlanta, Newark, Honolulu, Kona, Chicago, Oakland and Ontario will offer you the ability to reserve your meal in advance of your flight. Not all of the options listed above will be offered on every flight — you need to enter your travel date and flight information to see what is available for your flight.
None of the options appeal to me, so I personally would not order any of them. Also, I believe that the prices are a little steep but not to the point of unreasonable. However — as with the introduction last year of premium meals for economy class passengers on international flights operated by US Airways — I applaud Alaska Airlines for attempting to offer its passengers additional options.
Would you pre-order a meal from Alaska Airlines if you are a passenger in the economy class cabin of an airplane on a domestic flight operated by Alaska Airlines?
