Now, however, United Airlines appears to have had second thoughts about giving all its First Class passengers that warm feeling inside.
As revealed by qukslvr619 on FlyerTalk, United has decided to save a few nickels and a dime on its First Class food offerings.

5000 Malaysian hotels start imposing tourism tax
The Straits Times
Some 5,000 hotels around Malaysia have started implementing a new tourism tax for foreign visitors.
Foreign tourists are charged a flat rate of RM10 (S$3.20) per night per room, while Malaysians and permanent residents are exempted.
“We will impose a RM10 flat rate from five-star to zero-star hotels for foreign tourists, and Malaysians will be exempted from the tax across all classifications of hotels,” Tourism and Culture Minister Nazri Aziz told Parliament last week, as quoted by The Star newspaper.
Sneeze next to the Katla volcano, goes the joke in this Icelandic village, and a seismologist in Reykjavik will analyze the disturbance.
After a summer of increased seismic activity at Katla, Icelanders are obsessing over the smallest sign of an eruption at the country’s most closely watched volcano.
Katla last erupted in 1918. Never before in recorded history, dating back to the 12th century, have 99 years passed without an eruption from the volcano. Eight out of the last 10 eruptions at Katla have occurred between September and November, when glacial melting is believed to create conditions for the magma to burst forth.
