No meals for American First and Business Class

American Airlines is all set to drop all meals for its premium passengers on most short flights from next month. The largest American carrier will offer just snacks instead of a meal to first and business class passengers on most flights under two hours and 45 minutes. 

The change means a continuity of service between American with US Airways, which this spring reduced its meal cutoff to 2:45 from three hours and 30 minutes. The two airlines merged in December, the new rules will cover flights in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. They were detailed on American's website, however there is no reduction in the fares charged by the airline.
