Move over rubber chicken.
The headline on this item is from an old jingle for American Airlines, back when it WAS something special in the air. Hoping to make its flights a little less soul-sucking, starting today (Saturday, Nov. 1) the airline is offering two new sandwiches for afternoon snacking:
-- Italian Deli Panini - beef salami and turkey, provolone cheese, lettuce and tomato on panini bread served with a side of Italian herb dressing
-- Roast Beef Ciabatta - roast beef and provolone cheese, lettuce and tomato on ciabatta bread served with a side of horseradish Dijon dressing.
The Asian chicken wrap -- grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, Napa cabbage, red bell peppers and Mandarin orange slices wrapped in a tortilla -- will remain on the menu. The above items are available for $6 each and will be offered on flights lasting three hours or longer and departing after 10 a.m.
For those traveling on flights departing before 10 a.m. and lasting three hours or longer, American Airlines will continue to offer its popular bagel sandwich -- a plain bagel with roasted turkey and mild muenster cheese -- and the breakfast croissant -- a croissant layered with turkey, muenster cheese, lettuce and tomato -- both available for $6 each.
But when will American let them eat cake?
