Free snacks are making a comeback in the main cabins of major U.S. airlines.
United Airlines flight attendants began passing out crackers and mini-pretzels on Monday.
Fort Worth-based American Airlines also announced Monday that free snacks will return for main cabin passengers. All of American's domestic flights should offer free snacks by April.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Dallas-based Southwest Airlines has always offered free snacks, as has Delta Airlines.
Many airlines, however, ditched free snacks to save money in the lean financial years after 9/11.
The return of free snacks comes at a time when many U.S. airlines are posting record profits.
