Food service on board

New Arrival

I haven't flown on Southwest in years.  I frequently use Spirit (due to my location and the location of my extended family) and they don't supply anything.  I used Delta at Christmas and was given

a mini can of soda and some cookies.  Does Southwest provide anything or do I need to bring my own snacks?  Thanks.

Thanks~ I am used to Spirit, where you bring all of your own food, empty bottles to fill up

withk water after security.

You should just do that anyways instead of using disposable cups on board!

The snacks are dependent on the length of your flight, however peanuts and/or pretzels are always available. Beverages are served on every flight that does not encounter too much turbulence.

My favorite was "plane crackers."  They were crackers shaped like a plane.  I hope they bring them back.

I've never seen a snack shaped like planes on a flight. That is way too cool Woman Very Happy

All flights get beverage service. Short flights get peanuts and/or pretzels. Longer flights get a choice of larger snacks.

 

Service is sometimes not given in cases of lengthy turbulence. I generally make sure I have something (granola bar or snack mix) in my carryon, just in case.

You like the Oreos? Noted! 

 

I think we can all agree that snacks make a flight better. Good thing we hand 'em out for free. 😉
