But don't take away our free soda. US Airways learned that the hard way when it briefly made us pay for all drinks back in 2008. The airline soon cried uncle in the face of passenger backlash (and when no other airline joined in as they'd expected).
The moral is that when it comes to food, don't blame the airlines; they don't give us enough to make much of a difference, not in coach anyway. If you want to see great examples of "bad" plane munchies, just stop in any airport gift shop for a vast array of high-calorie, high-fat offerings from super-size candy bars to hefty sacks of sweet and salty mash-ups.
As I always say, bring something tasty and healthy from home. And to stay on Mayor Bloomberg's good side, you may want to skip the leftover Halloween candy.
