    During Irrops today, was given my meal voucher for a whole 7.00. I said as a 1K, I used to get 20 instead of the normal 10. The CSR said it's a new change because people weren't spending the whole voucher and the only thing she could do was give me two.

    That should buy you a muffin at your friendly airport Starbucks.

    Got 20$ for an overnight IRROPS in August. That sounded pretty low at that time. :(

    I'm curious as to which meal the voucher was for: B, L, D? It's somewhat understandable if for breakfast, although $7 is still a 20th century price.

    I got something like that for a 4 hour delay. For dinner.

    I challenge Jeff Smisek to buy dinner at ORD for $7

    The new customer unfriendly policy is $7 for everyone regardless of status. :(

    Crackers, ketchup and mustard. Just like Tom Hanks in The Terminal.

    Problem solved. :)

    Yes Mangement should try to eat on the same bill we have to eat on !!! The airlines like to charge you for what ever they can (Bags) etc. Haise the cost and lower the benefit for the all of us flyers around the World!! Is this Fly the Friendy Sky's ????????

    For a guy who makes 9+ (million) and lives at the Trump Tower, hmm....that sounds tough.
