Not to nitpick, but when you are paying for a $1000-5000 seat, shouldn't you receive anything better than a Swanson's piece of meat or a Stouffer's pasta? If I'm served one more cheese tortellini in first class I'm going to have a conniption. When I was flying back from the FT conference last year (ORD-LAX on a 763 in FIRST), I was served something so inedible I couldn't believe it. I think it most resembled the steak they served onscreen in Shawshank. I asked the FA nicely, "Excuse me, but do you eat this?" She replied, "Sometimes. If I'm really hungry. Usually I prefer the Boston Market sandwiches we sell in coach." And it's so true. I'd much rather have a $7 sandwich than the slop they serve in first. I asked her why the food is going so downhill and mentioned business class fare on long haul flights I had ORD-CDG and DFW-NRT that were pathetic (except for the appetizers) and she replied, "Management tries to keep the food costs down to $10 in First/Business and $4 in coach." I couldn't believe she said it yet I totally believed it. Sad state of affairs.
