I was going to write about the European Commission approving the merger between American and US Airways, but this is much bigger news – the Admirals Club is upgrading their snack offering!
Enhanced Admirals Club Snacks
We’re adding new selections to the snack offerings. Oranges and yogurt covered pretzels are now available all day. A mini butter croissant and a variety of mini Danishes were added to the morning options. Plus, you should start seeing an upgraded Otis Spunkmeyer chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookie, mixed Mediterranean olives, crudité, and assorted cheeses to pair with tomato basil crackers for an afternoon snack.
Yogurt Pretzels!! Woo hoo!!
