So long, snickerdoodle. Make way for chocolate chunk.

American Airlines introduced a new chocolate chunk cookie earlier this month for passengers flying domestic first class.

The new cookies are produced by Best Maid Cookie Company and were first loaded onto flights on Sept. 11, American spokeswoman Leah Rubertino told TPG.

Rubertino said that the new cookies replace the previous chocolate chunk option — baked by Christie’s Cookies — that had been offered alongside the snickerdoodle option.

She added that, because of high demand, the airline would also be reducing cookie flavor options for travelers in domestic first.

“Our customers love the chocolate chunk so we’ve increased quantities ordered and removed the snickerdoodle to provide our customers even more of what they want,” Rubertino said in an email.

TPG asked American for a photo of the new cookie, but the airline was unable to provide one. If you get one on your next flight, feel free to take a picture and email us at so we can show everyone else what it looks like.
