US Airways Coach Class Meal Options

US Airways is debuting new, healthier meal options in steerage class. But the added nutrition will come at a price. Meals will go from $5 a pop to $7. For that price, you may as well order something at the airport. These meals are offered on flights over 3.5 hours between 8:00a.m and 8:00p.m.

  • Breakfast: Deli plate with tiny bagels, peppered turkey, ham, provolone and cheddar cheese (mmmm) served with red grapes and cream cheese OR cinnamon French toast with “honey-nut cream cheese spread” and red grapes on the side. That actually sounds tasty. I’d opt for the bagels myself.
  • Lunch: Grilled chicken salad with romaine lettuce, roasted pecans and mandarin oranges OR sliced turkey on molasses bread with plain ole’ lettuce and a jellied cranberry sauce, served with Kettle Classic natural potato chips. I’m not 100% in love with those options.
  • Snack: Chicken salad with garlic and rosemary crackers, a fruit bar, fruit and nut mix and chocolate mint chip cookies. Again, tasty!

They sound good, but they sure as hell don’t sound like they’re worth $7. And just try getting change for your $10 on your flight. Those are going to be some angry flight attendants. My expert recommendation is to stop by Subway on the way and get a whole value meal for the same price.
