CHICAGO, July 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines today announced customers will get to choose between three complimentary inflight snack items offered in United Economy® on all domestic flights, regardless of departure time. As of July 1, customers will have a choice between Byrd's Maple Wafers, pretzels and the customer favorite, stroopwafel.
United previously rotated the complimentary inflight snack offering on flights that departed prior to 9:45 a.m. Now the stroopwafel and pretzels will be available at any time of day and the airline will rotate the third selection to continue offering a variety of choices that appeal to a broad customer palate.
"Since we reintroduced free snacks a few years ago, our customers have come to look forward to enjoying their personal favorites on board – whether it be the stroopwafel, our exclusive maple wafers or the classic pretzels," said Toby Enqvist, United's Chief Customer Officer. "Now we're going a step further and when it comes to snacks, every customer wins since our entire inflight snack lineup is available to choose from no matter the time of day."
