Continental Airlines is joining the carriers that charge for food on their flights. That’s right: Beginning this fall, you’ll have to pay for the rubber chicken — a move the airline says will be worth $35 million a year.
There will be exceptions: Continental passengers on some international routes, on domestic flights over six hours and those who sit in first or business class on routes worldwide will continue to get free food.
No word yet on whether barf bags will remain free.
Delta, American and US Airways already charge for food on flights.
