    I do enjoy the soup at lunch and also the chicken salad, but I have two suggestions to even make a nicer experience. Why not a soupspoon instead of a teaspoon or better yet how about a nice mug to drink the soup, this would be especially helpful during rough weather. Also the glob, those two containers of thick ranch dressing that comes with the salad. No way to coat the leaves, it just sort of lays there on the top. So, why not have a dressing that will coat the leaves all the way to the bottom of the dish, like V&O, or the asian dressing that they have on Int'l flights, just something creamy that will mix well with the greens .

    FWIW, I'd bet against the soup spoon happening because they like to use the same "kit" for all the flights. It saves them a lot of money to only have to cater one setup type. That's also why things are sometimes served in a bowl that make no sense to be.

    Not saying it wouldn't be nice, but I wouldn't bet on it happening.

    At least the PMCO spoon was more soup spoon-like than the PMUA spoon.

    I have to agree with you on this, the sCO flatware is much better than the sUA flatware here. I was told that they would be introducing new flatware & china for the merged carrier at some point in the next few weeks.
