1 good reason why cutting costs is important

1 good reason why cutting costs is important

by Roman on January 19, 2009

In 1987 American Airlines saved $40,000 by eliminating 1 olive from each salad served in first-class.

In 2001 the world’s largest airline caterer served 427 million meals to airline customers.

Make your own conclusion

This puts the real world into perspective. Things as tiny as 1 olive can save a large company more than some people make. An airliner who serves 427 million meals and gets an olive for 1 cent saves 4.27 million dollars by eliminating 1 olive from every meal.

Moral of the story?

Small things can make a difference –  that’s also the reason why elephants are afraid of mice 😆
