From March 19-31, 2003, US Airways customers traveling in Coach Class on nonstop flights between Pittsburgh and Denver, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Kansas City, Mo., Nashville, Tenn., and New Orleans, will have the opportunity to purchase restaurant-quality deli meals onboard flights where meal service currently is not offeredâ€¦â€¦..
"We see the industry moving in the direction of programs like In-flight Cafe, giving customers more choice on flights where meals are not served," said B. Ben Baldanza, US Airways senior vice president of marketing and planning. "We look forward to customers' response to this initiative."
"We're delighted to participate in this evaluation of the In-flight Cafe program with a forward-thinking partner like US Airways," said Stephan Egli, global senior vice president of marketing for LSG Sky Chefs. "Our research indicates that nearly three-fourths of travelers want an option if other meals are not available, and we're confident that US Airways passengers will be pleased with the high quality and convenience of these In-flight Cafe meals."
