    Was pondering this last night... on the few flights where there are burgers leftover, what happens to them. Are they tossed out, donated to the crew for dinner, or something else. I know once coach is offered burgers, they can be comped to the front, but at the end of the flight... are they in any condition to be eaten anyway.

    for some reason, I am picturing now a bunch of burgers coming off the catering service trucks and a hockey game being played between the baggage conveyors and the tarmacs.

    Two burger love threads? :) They are close to petrified on the MSP westbound, can't say I would expect different of something cooked at minimum 6 hours prior.

    I think AS sells the burgers well to begin with and most of the time they will run out of burgers, however if there is one or two left, the crew probably will eat it... I think once they reheat the burgers onboard, it has to be eaten up or thrown away...

    Unless Beckoa is in F asking for the burgers to supplement his not so filling F meal :p
