    AS has been getting better about not running out of buy on board food recently, but it would be nice to have on option during OLCI to pre-purchase a Northern Bites meal, either hot or cold, even shelf-stable. Not sure how this would be logistically, but if we could reserve a burger as one can do with the digeplayer, that would be nice, and a way to indicate demand to AS, so those who want a sandwich or pasta bowl can have one. Just a thought ;)

    I detect a food (perhaps a burger) fixation. :D

    Golds hopping around on different flights might present a challenge, but an interesting concept.

    It will also be an issue if you are upgraded because some UGs won't want the burger. Perhaps there can be something like a

    S(ure, we've got)
    H (amburgers, and)
    I (check with my golds first)
    T(o see if they want one)

    service.

    If a second-world airline like Air Asia can do that, why can't a first-world one like AS? ;)

    With the way F catering is, I don't think that'd be a problem. ;)

    If they really don't want the burger, AS can Goldstreak them to beckoa. :p

    It would be a risk the person would take when pre-buying the burger. If the person misses the flight - a 75K gets it :p

    Hey if Omaha Steaks can do it, can't AS just ship them direct to beckoa?
