    I'd love to hear your stories about airline food (including lounges). [​IMG]

    Lounge in Beijing had warm beer in the fridge and warm sandwiches under a plastic cover. Forced myself to drink a beer then left.

    Better than the lounge in Kunming. No beer at all. Tg flight has no IFE as well. I must say, C class was only $90 more than economy

    Many, many years ago I flew on Piedmont ("Pigmont") Airlines a lot in the SE US. On one flight they gave us a mini-deli selection on a translucent, yellow plate wrapped in plastic wrap. As a joke I took it home and pinned it to our bulletin board. It sat there on the bulletin board until I moved (at least two years). There were so many chemicals in the meats, cheeses, etc. that nothing under the wrap every changed color, grew mold, decomposed, smelled or whatever. I swear they mummified that snack from Hell. :eek:

    Lounge in Bali no beer, but bottles of spirits available. How many aussies would they get in there in a day. Beer is an essential part of our diet.

    GulfAir's cardboard box full of cardboard, usually given away on flights from RUH-BAH, is pretty bad.

    The high amount of aussies is the reason that there was no beer[​IMG]

    Ariana Afghan Airline 'special meal'. Pics to come. That airline also qualifies for worst airline toilet experience. I see a new thread in the making.

    You may be right, take a few on-board for any on tarmac delays.

    On a recent flight from Jakarta to Mataram, via Surabaya, they let us take 6 cans of Bintang onboard for the flight. Good old Batavia Air (and CGK security). Needless to say, we were a bit weary at the other end.[​IMG]

    On flight times close to three hours, it would be nice to get something more than a Lorna Doone cookie for an F meal.

    If a bland tasteless dinner with some mystery meat thrown in is your preference, hey, it was great! ;)

    "Breakfast" on KL short haul is always a fun game- guess what the breakfast is supposed to be!

    Air India. I don't know what I was eating. I think Alpo would have tasted better.
