Bought by United last year, Continental now matches United policy of no pretzels to passengers in economy class. Continental says this move will save it $2.5 million a year.
Continental's move leaves Delta as the only major U.S. carrier that still offers free snacks to economy passengers. Snacks are still being offered by the smaller airlines, namely AirTran, Alaska Airlines, Frontier, JetBlue and Southwest.
As for me, I don't eat them anyway....too much salt.
