Southwest: Expired Snacks!

Flying into Las Vegas yesterday (August 19) I decided to look at the expiration dates on the snacks they were handing out.

Exhibit A: Cinnamon Cookies, 30Jun18

Exhibit B: Whole Wheat Crackers with White Cheddar, 11Apr18

Exhibit C: Fritos, 27Mar18

Exhibit D: Pretzels. This one was a little more tricky. The numbering read 190201. I’m going to give Southwest the benefit of the doubt here and say this meant February 1, 2019. Or January 2, 2019. But who knows?

Later in the flight they came around with coffee. Me—“When did they make it, back in March?”

Other than that, an uneventful flight. They did manage to get us to LAS a half hour earlier than scheduled. Maybe the pilots were eating some of those non-expired pretzels for energy.

Good idea for everybody to stay away from SWA because of snacks or whatever. Everyone else might have a chance to enjoy more space in this last great air travel bargain.
