(CNN)   Airlines no longer using limes due to rising cost. Somehow a sprig of parsley in your bottle of Corona is just not the same   (money.cnn.com) divider line 25

It's a shame this is landing in the backwater of the business tab, subby, because your little Corona reference there would have set off a firestorm on the main page.

Why can't they hold all those limes?

Great.  Now I have scurvy.

They will be replaced by small lemon-soaked paper napkins for your comfort, refreshment and hygiene during the journey.

Limes at the store this past weekend were like 3 for $2.50

I remember a couple of years ago getting like 8 for $1

Who the fark drinks Corona on an airplane. Gin and tonic without a lime is truly a travesty, however.

Well, great.  What will I put in my coconut now?

Guy next to me at the bar a couple weeks ago lit into the bartender lady for serving his vodka with a slice of lime when he expressly asked for a twist.  A TWIST GODDAMNIT!

/jerk.

Great. Now if the plane crashes in the ocean, I will not be saved by the buoyancy of citrus.

If someone drinks Corona, they probably don't have discerning tastes anyway

NEVER put fruit in beer.

Now how will we keep from getting scurvey on those long pre-takeoff waits?

But I *like* a Hacker-Pschorr with an orange wedge. Full disclosure: I'm female.

I guess while I'm here, when I went to the Tex-Mex place last week, they were handing out lime wedges like they were candy. Maybe the airlines should figure out where that restaurant gets their limes.

Typical MBA executives. Penny wise and pound foolish. Compared to the price of fuel, limes are almost free.

A good beer doesn't need a lime.

You consider Corona to be beer?

/some exec figured out no limes will save $1000/yr
//for this, he gets a $10000 bon us
///ticket prices rise due to citric budget cut

I flew last week on Frontier for the first time in a while and my G&T came with this:

Aaaaaactually, not bad at all.

Aren't they making enough profit on the $10 beer to afford to throw in 1/8th of a piece of fruit?
