    I just booked OSL-ZRH-SFO on LX C and while I'm SK*G, I will be posting this trip to my M&M account where I'm just a lousy FTL. Does anyone know the LX policy regarding meal orders? I'm seated in 9K so I'm fairly back in the C cabin as well...

    I am quite sure it's either front-to-back or back-to-front. That has been my experience from LX intra-Europe. Like you, I'm SK*G and LH FTL and have never posted any LX flights to my EB account.

    On long-hauls, I frequently observe the crews asking SENs and HONs in C about their meal choices first - although it does not happen all the time. I am not sure where *G and FTL would fit into that process. Maybe it's just "all Elites before normal pax"?

    Either way, even when I was flying on ID tickets I'd usually still end up with my meal of choice. I think LX still caters more meals than C pax to give a bit of flexibility.

    Actually, I have never seen this on LH long-hauls, which I do all the time...sometimes they run out of meal choices in biz, maybe 10% of the time.

    Hmm.. on Long-Haul C flights with LH, I have always seen this.

    Sometimes they do it very discreetly.

    I gotta travel with you! ;)

    However, it happens in F, but not in C...

    Better treatment than HON's in F, amazingly enough!

    However, in C, nothing of note - they just go through the motions - always am on full flights, so they might dispense with the civilities...

    Same here, I've witnessed meal order taking by status in both LH and LX long-haul C. But admittedly on neither carrier does it happen all the time, IMHO. AC, on the other hand, seems to always do it.

    Thanks all! I guess I'll survive... :)

    (Should maybe bring one or two protein bars just in case...)

    Not a bad idea at all.

    The LX policy is simple. Service in C starts from the back (so you should be lucky.) Elites get their choice first.

    Thanks — unfortunately, it looks like I will be hitting SEN prior to my trip anyway. :)
