Editor’s note: This story has nothing to do with trains, but it does concern a passenger common-carrier, and this story is just too nutty to pass up. – Corridorrail.com Editor

There’s a huge airline nut surplus
The company that has been supplying American Airlines with its first class nut mix for 30 years currently has a surplus of nuts, as business has dropped by about 90%.
In a typical year the company roasts 2.4 million pounds of nuts, most of which go to airlines. But with airlines largely not serving nuts right now, demand has dropped, and the company has 70,000 bags of nuts sitting around, most of which are a cashew-almond-walnut-pecan mix.
