    Kona is such a mild flavor that unless they blend it with a much more robust bean, I don't know how much better it will be than what we've had. Although, it won't take much for it to be an improvement.

    On a UA flight from FLL to IAH, I half jokingly complained to the lead FA as she walked by about the almost terrible coffee and she apologised with a smile. A few minutes later she brought me another cup which had greatly improved flavor. As we were debarking the aircraft I asked her why that second cup tasted much better, and her reply was that it come from first class and they use cream instead of milk in the coffee up there.

    Now I know why you guys pay extra. It's for the better tasting coffee in front. :rolleyes:

    Seth, don't you realize that coffee helps puts more hair on our manly chests? That's why the ladies drink more tea then coffee. Heck, I drink so much java each day that I have to shave my chest at least eight times weekly or it looks like a forest in the fall.

    I keep some of my shaved hair and try to glue it on the bald spot at the back of my head. Works well until I have the next shower. Gotta change the methodology: Either try using Superglue or keep showers a year apart.

    I prefer milder coffee. Actually, I dont really like the taste of coffee... I like the taste of cream and sugar. :)

    I really enjoy coffee, that's why I take it "double-double" (twice the cream, twice the sugar) to help sssmmmooottthhh out the taste. ;)

    I don't wear my belts that high. Can't get them over my overhanging gut.

    Two obvious rings at the top left on top of what, the burger? The goop on top of the rings detracts from their stronger taste and relishes them tasteless. They shoud've kept the cheese on the burger and not the rings

    Even the aircraft flying by is so ashamed by the goopy onion rings that they turned it around and landed as shown in your picture.

    Yesterday on a UA_Expressjet, the F.A took a bunch of coffee bags to the restroom ....she was educating the other F.A about how great the coffee is to alleviate the nasty smelling ERJ toilets. :D

    Too weak. My wife prefers her Tetley tea at all hours of the day or night. She's having a cuppa as we speak while I finish my doubled-doubled. And I can confirm her tea does wonders for keeping her chest hairless.

    Early morning flight on a CO D8-400 from YYZ-EWR. In the air we're served our coffees and they taste like chemicals, so they go into the garbage with comments to the FA. She says "don't blame me as it was the other FA (a guy) who cleaned the coffee urn at the back just prior to takeoff". Obviously he didn't rinse out the urn thoroughly after he poured in the cleaning stuff. A week later returning EWR-YYZ on a late evening flight we had the same FA on our flight as on the way down. Didn't have to remind her of the lousy coffee, but she rememebered and promised us a much better cup on the way. Turns out she was right, as my wife said it was delicious, so much so that a guy across the aisle from us said he'd try a cup too, after he stopped laughing at our comments about the previous flight's slop. I chickened out and settled for a cola instead, as a way to get my caffeine safely.

    Not all who happen to be in the far north's frozen wilderness are invariably Canuckians. Actually, I'm a proud Yank born in Brooklyn who now resides in the frozen northwoods which are just beginnng to thaw out (as am I too). Not a "dodger" either, as my DD214 reads "Honorable Discharge" as does my certificate of such, after six years of U.S. Army and Reserves service.

    So you can't always judge a cover by it's book, as is frequently misused on here, but it does give me the opportunity to drink more coffee and my wife her teas, while I check out the hairilessness of us both from time to time. ;)

    If you're not familiar with a DD214, ask someone who is. :p

    Bun, meat, meat, lettuce, tomato, bun. And I like cheese on my burger generally. :p

    I watched Das Boot last night... the entire damn film so I think I know what DD214 means. ;)

    Many, Many thanks for serving your country! :)

    Now to put this thread back on track...

    Mmmm, Kosher :cool:

    I like mine sans bun--protein style. Makes eating it more of a challenge. I like a good challenge.
