What’s better than a complimentary bag of peanuts on your five-hour flight? Unless you’re craving peanuts, most snacks sound more appetizing than the two-ounce bag of dry — emphasis on the dry — roasted peanuts available on most domestic flights.
Peanuts and pretzels tend to be airline snack staples. Fliers can rely on AirTran and American Airlines for a free salty bag of peanuts every flight. Alaska Airlines, Delta, United and Continental Airlines consistently hand out bags of pretzels. Southwest, however, is kind enough to offer a choice of either peanuts or pretzels.
Only a few airlines dare to offer complimentary snacks that aren’t peanuts or pretzels. On a Delta flight, you can opt for Biscoff cookies. On Hawaiian Airlines, you can get a taste of the tropical island with Hawaiian Sweet Maui Onion Potato Chips and Pau Hana Snack Mix. JetBlue gives consideration to junk food-addicts, health nuts, and even kids with DORITOS Tortilla Chips, Terra Blues Potato Chips, and Keebler Animal Crackers. Read on to see what complimentary snacks your airline serves.
