    Found smiling whale-shaped cheese crackers in the pretzel/cracker stick snack mix today at the EWR CO PC. I don't remember seeing them in the snack mix last week. Anyone else excited about this? It's the little things.

    Yes, whale-shaped cheese crackers were spotted (and consumed :)) last weekend at the LAX and SFO RCC.

    They're probably goldfish, not whales. ;)

    I was gonna say... I'm sure they're goldfish. I have an enormous box downstairs... they make you thirsty like crazy but they're delicious. :)

    Are they true to size? Is there any place left to sit once they wheel in the crackers? :eek:

    HA! I noticed this at ORD on Friday. They are definitely not goldfish, but rather a knock-off shaped as smiling whales.

    This is just another sign that UA/CO wants to be an airline for whales, of course.

    No they are whales. SMI/J got a better deal purchasing knock off goldfish crackers.

    Plus don't forget that they removed all the Pepperidge Farm cookies as part of the "food changes that you will like" change in the RCC. So no way would they have Pepperidge Farm Goldfish.

    Actually, depending on your status, you get platinumfish, goldfish, or silverfish as a snack.

    Actually based on the new CO UA loyalty money-maximizing model, you will have the option of paying some extra money and can jump to the front of line and get access to the platinum fish, regardless of your status.

    I guess these crackers are the closest we'll ever get to seeing the A380 whalejet in the UA fleet...

    SMI/J is on record for his disdain for 4 engine planes. He has referred to the 747-400 as fuel sucking pigs and I'd imagine the A380 would fall into that same category.

    I also noticed the whales last Sat at LAX. Thought about posting it but figured who'd care about that, right? :p

    Speaking of snacks, how do they engineer those snack towers to appear to be a nice mix of crackers, pretzels, et al., but I always end up with a cup of 90% pretzels!? :mad:
