Continental Airlines will no longer serve pretzels and Biscoff cookies on their domestic routes, several international news sites reported on Saturday. Continental is expecting to save about $2.8 million every year because of the reported change.

“We are removing beverage snacks — pretzels and Biscoff [cookies] — in an effort to reduce costs and align ourselves with many of our network competitors,” Andrew Farraro, Continental representative was quoted saying.

King Nut, the supplier of pretzels said that they already know the plan two or three months ago.

“We make about 45 million units a year for Continental, so it will probably drop down to about 20 million, because they are still going to using it internationally,” CEO of King Nut in Solon, Marty Kanan was quoted saying.

Continental‘s move is just another sign of legacy carriers reducing amenities in order to shave off a bit of their costs in an industry with cutthroat competition and razor-thin margins,” Raymond Kollau of Airlinetrends.com commented.
