American Airline’s regional subsidiary, American Eagle, serves a pre-packaged snack mix on shorter, local routes in their First Class cabin. These flights don’t qualify for a full snack basket, so in place of this, flight attendants pass out a packaged savory snack mix.
Route: New York JFK to Washington DC Reagan
Aircraft: Bombardier CRJ-900 NextGen
Meal Window: Refreshment
Meal: Lite Savory Snack Mix
Once airborne, a drink service was offered, and upon delivery of my drink, I was offered a packet of savory snack mix.
Included in the snack mix is:
- Ranch mini pretzel twists
- Cheddar corn sticks
- Sesame sticks
- Salt and Pepper cashews
I really liked the mix, and it was reminiscent of what was served in the AAdmiral’s clubs, this time with a ranch flavor. Since the mix does have seasoning on it, I wished the flight attendant would have passed out a moist toilette or hot towel prior to landing, though I made do with my napkin and a trip to the lavatory.
I found this type of snack mix to be perfect for a short hop like JFK to DCA, and even would have preferred a larger serving. It was pretty good, and I’d recommend grabbing a few packets – even just to munch on at a later time. The flight attendant on my trip offered 3 “rounds” of drinks, each time with more mix, so I could have taken several pouches if I wanted to.
If you’re on a regional American Eagle flight and are offered the snack mix, take a few packets – you won’t be disappointed.
