I think preselected meals would actually create more work for the crew, as they would be running individual meals to seats, having first worked,out which meal goes where, rather than knocking out the same meals from a trolley as they move down the aisles.in reply to: On-board Catering: A la carte pricing models17 Jan 2018
Interesting comment, but unless you are willing to add to the overall journey time but flying over another port, the only direct choices from LHR are QR or BA. For me that makes it s very simple decision. And for now at least QR02 will always operate with Q Suites.in reply to: Qatar Airways Q Suite17 Jan 2018
I think it is important to understand where responsibility lies here.
Selling alcohol to a customer who appears inebriated is as much against the law in an airport bar as it is in the high street.
Boarding an aircraft when inebriated is an offence. Allowing a passenger who appears inebriated to board an aircraft is an offence.
Serving alcohol to a passenger onboard an aircraft who appears to be inebriated is just plain irresponsible.
Reducing/limiting the amount of alcohol that can be served in airport bars is not really going to solve the problem.in reply to: Drunk air passenger arrests up 50 per cent9 Jan 2018
I was once in a hotel lift in Norfolk, Virginia with a colleague who has a VERY Glaswegian accent. I sound a bit like a BBc newsreader from the 60’s.
A very colourful preacher got it the lift, heard us talking, and asked “Where in Australia are you guys from?”in reply to: Its Colombia not Columbia9 Jan 2018
I think it is entirely down to the airlines and little if anything to do with the airframe.
Among other I have flown F on the BA 789, and J on the QR A350; the QR wins hands down for space and comfort, thus nothing to do with the airframe.
Don’t talk here about service or food etc as these are not relevant considerations, given that they are determined entirely by the carrier and not the manufacturer.in reply to: A350 vs B7875 Jan 2018
There are some pretty interesting “cockpit” vids on the web, including some amazing Concorde start/taxi/takeoff/land sequences. There was a time when BA pilots wore ties……….3 Jan 2018
Don’t loose sight of the fact that, even though Finnair went BOB some time ago, they still offer coffee, tea, water and juice free. Same with SAS. Nothing is free on BA.8 Dec 2017
Further to my post yesterday, just flown MAN LHR and SCCM announced that “due to issues with the catering team, we have no fresh food onboard today”.6 Dec 2017
CPH – LHR mid morning departure.
No bacon rolls, no ham and cheese sandwiches. Choice of mozzarella focaccia or falafel wrap. Yum yum. Crew highly embarrassed and confirmed that this seems to be the norm nowadays.5 Dec 2017
