Airlines are re-evaluating their menus to make them more "flavorful" and "nutritious," according to a New York Times report. You can now get meals like chilled black olive spaghetti, and orange chicken salad with roasted pecans. Those meals are available for six to eight dollars, on some flights run by US Airways, Midwest and Delta.

STEVE INSKEEP, Host:

Those meals are available if you pay $6-8 on some flights run by U.S. Airways, Midwest and Delta. Incidentally, one of those airlines is the one that used to serve the frozen turkey sandwich. Not that I'm bitter. Not a bit.
