    Brown bagging versus buying US AIR food

    Greetings! I haven't flown since 2005 and am wondering if I could bring some sandwiches/snacks for the 4 hour flight from Charlotte in my carry on luggage/soft-sided cooler. I may have some of those blue ice packs and frozen steaks as well if that's allowed.
    I never had a problem before flying US AIR to St Thomas...but, like I said, that was 2005. I'd sure rather brown bag it than buy the meals/snacks offered by US AIR. Thanks for any input!

    I dont' know about the steaks and blue ice packs, but I do know we'll be bringing along delicious homemade roast beef sandwiches on our Delta flight on Wednesday!

    Andrea...what is an alternative to the blue ice packs? (Even though they DO stay frozen for the whole trip).
    Lisa...what are using to keep your roast beef sandwiches cold?

    Thanks..

    Nothing. Sandwiches are made the night before and refrigerated until we leave the house about 5:15 a.m. and into the air conditioned car and then air conditioned airport terminal. Sandwiches will probably be eaten about 11:30 a.m. and we have never had any problems.

    You can always toss in a couple spare Ziplock bags and fill them with ice at the airport. I believe the Burger King in Charlotte allows you to fill your own soda cups. Just buy a drink there and dump a cup full of ice into the ziplock baggie. The flights out of Charlotte are packed full this week.
