US Airways to bring back free wine for overseas flights

By Arnie Weissmann

Complimentary wine will again be served to economy passengers flying US Airways to Europe, Tel Aviv and South America, starting in July. 

American Airlines, with which US Airways has agreed to merge, brought back free beer and wine in coach on international flights last year.

US Airways will also begin offering continental breakfasts, in a box, to first-class domestic passenger on red-eye flights. Currently, there is no breakfast service on domestic red-eyes.

Pre-ordered DineFresh meals in economy will also become available on selected international flights to Philadelphia and Charlotte for $21.99. The meals can be ordered up to 24 hours before the flight. These meals were already available on overseas flights to Europe, South America or Tel Aviv.

And the airline said that a redesigned amenities bag for international business-class passengers will include products from Red Flower, a maker of spa products.

Correction: The new addition of DineFresh meals is for international flights to the U.S. They were already available on overseas flights from the U.S.
