Brace yourself.

United Airlines has made a momentous decision regarding its in-flight snack offerings.

The carrier has announced it will replace its Biscoff cookies with something more well-known and more popular.

Oreos.

Oreo Thins, to be exact.

“Our complementary snack options continue to be a hit and we’re always looking for opportunities to introduce new selections,” a spokesperson for the airline said in a statement shared with Fox News. “We plan to add Oreo Thins into the mix soon and look forward to the response from our customers.”

The response should be spectacular.

What makes us so confident?

Well, we are talking about the world’s most popular cookie here.

Since its creation in 1912, more than 450 billion Oreos have been sold. In fact, according to Statista, as recently as 2017 the brand had more than $1.1 billion in sales — $710 million for regular Oreos, $268 million for Oreo Double Stuf and $125 million for Oreo Thins.

While the traditional chocolate wafers with the vanilla cream filling are the most popular, Oreos have introduced a multitude of flavors over the last 100+ years. That includes Creamsicle, Banana Split Cream, Neapolitan, Triple Double, Candy Corn, Coconut Fudge, Gingerbread, Candy Cane, White Fudge Covered, Cookies n’ Creme, Root Beer Float, Watermelon, Marshmallow Crispy, Caramel Apple, Limeade, Pumpkin Spice, Cookie Dough, Red Velvet, Cotton Candy, S’mores, and more.

For now, United will start out with the Oreo Thins and take it from there.

The butter-flavored Biscoff cookies had been offered on United since August.

American Airlines Offering Roundtrip Fares as Low as $32

Published

Granted, there are very few people taking to the air these days in the wake of the devastating global spread of the coronavirus.

But American Airlines, for whatever reason, is offering one of those crazy once-in-a-lifetime deals.

As first reported by One Mile At A Time, American has a fare through the month of April where you can fly from Miami to Los Angeles for $16 each way.

Yep, that’s right – $32 roundtrip to go coast to coast.

No doubt it’s one of the most eye-catching, startling fares ever offered, even better than when some airlines run a buy one/get one special. Not that we didn’t believe One Mile At A Time, one of the most well-respected and well-read aviation blogs out there, but we had to see this for ourselves.

Sure enough, when TravelPulse checked it out on Sunday, the fare had increased.

By eight whole dollars.

Choosing random dates and leaving Miami International Airport for Los Angeles International on April 22 and returning April 29, the fare for basic economy was $40 roundtrip. Want a better seat? Main cabin fares were just $96 roundtrip. (Forget about first class. You didn’t think American was that generous, did you? Those fares were $854 roundtrip.)

For the month of May, again choosing random dates and leaving Miami on May 13 and returning May 20, we found basic economy roundtrip fares for $56 and main cabin for $121.

So who’s going to take a flyer on these fares while the virus is still raging?

Certainly, there will be some folks, especially those that might absolutely need to travel more immediately. Or, you might have the gamblers out there who will take the chance that the pandemic and the restrictions will come to an end sooner than later, making the purchase of a May flight seem like a steal.
