US Airways reverses soda stance

February 23, 2009 3:32:55 AM PST
The airline won't charge for non-alcoholic beverages.

The soda's on the house - when on the plane.

US Airways is going back to giving free soft drinks and coffee to passengers.

In a memo to employees, Chief Executive Doug Parker says the free drink service will resume in March.

The airline is planning to announce the change today.

Last summer, US Airways started charging $2 for soda, juice, coffee and bottled water in coach cabins on domestic flights.

Other airlines have instituted new fees for things like checked bags and pillows.

But US Airways was the only carrier to charge for non-alcoholic beverages.
