Updated on

American Airlines Group Inc. has followed United Airlines in providing free snacks for economy passengers after more than a decade without them.

American, the world’s biggest carrier, began offering Biscoff cookies on flights departing before 9:45 a.m. Monday on routes between New York’s Kennedy airport and Los Angeles and San Francisco, and between Miami and Los Angeles. Flights later in the day will carry the cookies or pretzels. The snacks will return to the coach cabin of all flights April 4.
