A “discriminating, well-traveled lawyer” sent this article last week from Yahoo! Finance, a subject on which we also wrote about earlier today. United is now offering two specialty brunch options for Economy passengers on it’s p.s. (premium service) Boeing 757 flights that travel from New York’s JFK International Airport to San Francisco and Los Angeles. The question is, would you pay $24.99 for brunch on a transcontinental flight?
Our skeptical tipster (AND loyal United Airlines flyer) had this to say:
$25?? That could buy a GOOD brunch somewhere. Not one that you eat while jammed into an economy class seat. One also wonders at the quality of the “sparkling wine.” I am guessing it ain’t CRISTAL!
Not to mention a brunch isn’t really a brunch without bottomless mimosas or at the very least a well-stocked Bloody Mary bar. Still, you can’t have everything in the air, even if it is on a long-haul flight.
So, if offered, would you pay $25 for a premium brunch? Let us know in the comments!
