I just am puzzled now...

Since 9-11 we all know, real knives have been banned...

Does this apply on only certain routes? I saw pix on airlinemeals.net in which there still was complete silverware, some in which in first class they offered 3 different real fork, and a neat selection of plastic knives...

then I thought "wow...senseful..."...handing out a metal fork but only a plastic knife is brilliant!

Now I'm just wondering, what exactly is going on, because, I assume some poeople made thoughts about safety, and probably they meant to do their best, but this just seems ridiculous...

Explanations for me?

have a good evening...

Putana da Seatbeltz!

Real cutlery has returned to NW, so I assume other carriers are doing the same.

I think the last time I flew AA in first class, there was stainless utensils on the dinner tray. But I've noticed that AA no longer serves filet mignon or other beef dishes. That would require a steak knife, which would be a legitimate security problem.

It is coming back even in Europe now, you even get metal knifes on LH in Eco.

I believe its up to the regulators where the airline is based.

The CAA (UK) still do not allow metal knives, so you still have pathetic plastic ones on VS / BA - not good!

I was eating lunch at MSP a few months ago at a restaurant that was inside the secure area ... the restaurant there at the airport had plastic knives. I am all for security, but I think that's going a bit too far.

"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!
