I'm guessing the fourth option: "We'll sell you this crumby snack box for 5 bucks and prohibit you from bringing your own messy food on board." You heard it here first. Gag!

Yeah, I worry about that.

Lots to mull over, after a trip IND>MSP>SEA>MSP>IND last week. Unfortunately, in my new job, more airline repositions than before (this one was vacation). Learned to bring my own food, as the gourmet pretzels get tiring. Didn't know, besides not getting an aisle seat for the requisitive $15, that NWA charged $2 or $5 for the 'pretzels'. Glad anymore to stop at the local Panera and grab a sandwich or salad to carry on board, probably ought to bring extras and make a profit, as most look at me in envy (to avoid thread creep, I do give the remnants to the F/A).

And, might as well stick this in.... I know the TSA changed the 'rules', but much appreciate MSP having restaurants inside security, as opposed to IND where you must leave security to get decent (sic) food. Did have to laugh at the airline pilot (we're in MSP, so you guess the flavor) sitting at the table next to the soda machine, drinking multiple cups of soda from his 'water' glass.....maybe he had to pay for the newspaper that morning?

Oops, one other question? F/A on one of the flights had an FAA 'license' hanging around his neck (it was of the new green/blue badges). When I asked him what license he held, he told me that all F/A's are now FAA-licensed? He went on to tell me about all the training required of F/A's, and about 'ALL' that lost their licenses when 'they' started doing ten year background checks???
