  1. Re: Food for sale

    Has anyone experienced recently the bar/resataurant that Delta created at LaGuardia (?) a couple years ago.

    My initial reaction back then, after a few years of decent (but not great) “free” food in Delta Narita, and the KLM and AF lounges at their European hubs, was “no way!” But, I was hungry and I bought. You know, the Delta restauarnt venue was nice, the crowd pleasant and the food was higher end and well worth the tariff.

    Looks like Alaska is going for the low end. Will we see franchised burgers and pizza for sale soon in these lounges?

  2. @Alan, why do you think AS is going for the “low end”? I’ve looked at the menu in the picture (as well as seeing it in the AS LAX Boardroom) and it doesn’t look “low end” to me.
