JetBlue Updates Their Snack Boxes, But Thankfully Not Prices
Everybody loves snacks—especially since those 2012 resolutions have long faded away—so now's the perfect time to discuss some new in-flight offerings. JetBlue enjoys passing out plenty of free bits and bites, but they also have some more substantial options for sale in the aisles as well. There's new stuff on the horizon, as they just announced that they’re updating and upgrading some of their offerings as part of their Eat Up! Program.
It sounds like the new and improved options hit the skies over the last week or so, and in total there’s four unique boxes. Beef Up, Shape Up, and Cheer Up all remain priced at $5.99, and there’s even a "Mix It Up" option for the kiddos—but they promise that it’s good for everyone. The beef option is more of a protein snack box with stuff like salami, cheese, crackers, and bagel chips. The healthy option will get you stuff like hummus, fruit, nuts, and some pita chips. They’re pitching the Cheer Up option as the perfect side dish to a glass of in-flight wine—and it is—as it’s filled with cheese, fruit, and crackers.
All the snacks boxes are looking out for the earth too, as they’re now using around 30% less cardboard than before. That means you can feel good about yourself when you order up a second round of the Mix It Up box just to get access to a second serving of Nutella.
You’re probably going to watch television while downing your in-flight snack, but JetBlue is quick to point out that the snack boxes also feature a handy dandy word search. Of course the usual snacks and beverages—like Dunkin Donuts coffee and blue chips—remain free and unlimited, but we sometimes know you just need a little bit more to get you through the day. Hopefully we'll get our hands on these sooner than later, and when we do we'll report back—just like last time.
