JetBlue is joining other carriers offering onboard food for sale. Five new snack boxes go for $6 each.

The snack boxes will be available on flights longer than 3 hours and 45 minutes. They range from a "Wake Up" box that includes a croissant, jam, almond butter, crackers, fruit and milk to a "Cheer Up" box that features three cheeses, dried fruit and crackers.

There will still be free snacks on every flight. JetBlue began selling the boxes June 16 and is expected to officially announce the move Tuesday on Twitter and its blog.

Several other domestic airlines offer snack packs or meals for sale on longer flights; including United, US Airways and Delta. (Associated Press)
