Food and Beverage Service: Opportunities Exist to Build on Program Improvement Initiatives
Thank you for the opportunity to discuss our work on Amtrak’s food and beverage service. Losses on food and beverage service have been a long‐standing issue at Amtrak. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2011, Amtrak reported a direct operating loss of almost $85 million. Long‐distance routes accounted for about $74 million (87 percent) of these losses.
