The beloved Biscoff cookies are one of the best things about flying, at least in coach. Traditionally they come two cookies to a package. Right now, though, some American Airlines flights are getting packages with just one cookie. And the cookie itself is smaller, too.
According to an American Airlines spokesperson the cookies are smaller, but flight attendants are supposed to offer two packages to each passenger, and they hope to bring back full sized two to a package Biscoffs soon.
This is a temporary supply chain solution. Customers on a small number of flights will be offered two Biscoff single packs instead of one package containing two Biscoff cookies.
There is difference in the size but we’re hopeful these small number of flights will return to the regular package with two cookies by the end of the month.
In the meantime, Flight Attendants are instructed to offer two single Biscoff cookies, along with their beverage of choice.
I originally became addicted to Biscoff cookies flying Westair (United Express) in the mid-1990s. I never actually purchased any Biscoff myself until it was a qualifying partner as part of the US Airways Grand Slam promotion. That’s how I discovered Biscoff spread.
United Airlines actually reduced the size of its Biscoff cookie packages in 2007 to save money. Maybe that’s how the cookies became most associated with Delta.
