Earlier this month, United Airlines announced plans to remove tomato juice from its complimentary beverage offerings on domestic flights less than four hours. The cutback also applied to other beverages, including Sprite Zero, Jim Beam, and Courvoisier. But the tomato juice sparked a revolution.
According to reports, social media backlash against United’s decision to ditch tomato juice—and thus, beloved in-flight Bloody Mary’s—was widespread enough that the airline reversed its decision, and brought tomato juice back. Everyone knows tomato juice tastes better on an airplane!
