Hee hee hee! That's too funny. I've gotta admit I had to ask about a few things I heard when we went to Australia. The unfamiliar accent and unfamiliar terminology combined to give some interesting concepts!

I had duck once flying Bangkok to Koh Samui with Bangkok Airways - absolutely delicious. Great airline too - we flew from Louang Prabang (Laos) to Bangkok with them a couple of weeks back and for the price they are excellent.
Actually, last time I flew Air New Zealand, I thought the food was pretty good. Flying MEL-AKL we had a really nice cold-smoked salmon salad which wouldn't have been out of place in a restaurant.

must have been a while back - since they changed their short haul to express flights the food Transtasman has gone way downhill - but hey , the prices are one helluva lot cheaper than they used to be and no silly Saturday night minimum stays anymore so it all balances out

I once flew NZ AKL-SYD and was served scrambled tofu fro breakfast.Talk about unusual breakfast, it was disgusting, even the cabin crew looked in horror as they served it.
At least noone from NZ has replied to my letter, nor the next flights comments about the fish sauce in the noddle salad. Mind you thoses comments were made to the Purser, then internet and the telephone. What was I expecting. Someone to take ownership of the problem?

I flew domestic SGN-HAN a year or two ago on Vietnam Airlines and was surprised to have a choice of four (!) entrees on that 90 min flight but it sounded like one of the choices was horse but not sure....I don't think they would have huge abundance of horses in Vietnam to be able to serve as airline food but I could be wrong. I opted for something else and it was a really good meal on a really nice flight.
Need a Boeing 777 Firing Order....Further to fly...T5, CI, LX and LH 777s

It was funny (in retrospect) that I was a Vegetarian meal leaving Sydney, that got more and more vegan on the return.
But the fish sauce. No excuse. After been told by a total queen in the SYD office that the only special meal was vegetarian, and then to be given fish sauce. He should have saved the self importance and used it to talk to the customer that was contributing to his salary.
I know that is a cliche, but as someone that ends up paying K/Y fares, I do expect a little more.
