Out with the milk, in with the sugary drinks

25Aug11

I’ve noticed something strange on my last few airline trips: it’s becoming very difficult to find simple things like milk on the beverage menu. While I haven’t studied the matter in detail, there seems to be no shortage of sodas and other sugary drinks. Perhaps that’s what most customers want, but it’s still a discouraging trend.

With all the media attention that has been directed towards obesity and the importance of healthy eating and exercise, you would think that airlines could keep at least a nominal amount of healthy beverages on hand. Heck, even a bare-bones convenience store carries milk in the refrigerated cases. I don’t know whose decision it was to phase out such basic items on various airlines, but it certainly seems like a shortsighted one.
