American to Discontinue Food Service in the US, Including Hawaii

In a move that will continue to blur the line between lowfare carriers and so-called full service carriers, American Airlines announced that they will discontinue food service on domestic flights, including flights to Hawaii.  Passengers will be able to purchase an array of foods that used to be free.  Keep in mind, flights to Hawaii from the east coast are about 11 hours.  I actually don’t think it’s crazy to discontinue food service, but I’m very interested in how so-called full service carriers will position themselves going forward…"Fly us because we have higher, more restrictive fares, more expensive change fees, no food and no in-flight entertainment?"
