What NOT to do when they run out of your preferred choice onboard; for correct action read some trip reports! Wonder if they only had 1 can of Mountain Dew onboard  Smile

Fair use extract:

Maryland man was arrested at Kennedy Airport for hitting a flight attendant after she told him the kitchen had run out of chicken dinners, authorities said yesterday.

Pierre Delis, 36, who had been visiting relatives in Switzerland, allegedly went berserk on American Airlines Flight 65 from Zurich on Sunday, according to a criminal complaint filed in Brooklyn Federal Court....

At the defendant's arraignment, defense lawyer Florian Meidel asked U.S. Magistrate Steven Gold to tell jailers to feed his client because he hadn't had anything to eat since Sunday.

Meidel did not express a meal preference for his client.

He really needs his head chicken, a psychological evaluation of some kind.

My favourite when meal option run out from pax are. ' You should be carrying enough of every meal option for each passenger'.

Oh Ok we'll carry over 600 meals and then we'll have no room for passengers  Angry

Chicken, beef, is there really any difference when it comes to airline 'food'? I think it is the same overprocessed, over salted, covered in glop stuff anyway no matter if so called beef or chicken. Still, assulting or challanging an f/a over your food is bound to put you into jail and properly so nowadays. I hope this guy gets a nasty fine, 30 days in jail and on airline no-fly lists for a while. I am quite sure this guy will be fired from his job, has to face shame from his family and overall will be screwed for the rest of his life over his beheavor over chicken not being available.

Y'know, it's funny how many people agree with that sentiment, but when on a flight somewhere, wait in almost-desperate anticipation of that meal cart with its overprocessed, oversalted, covered-in-glop stuff.  biggrin  Anyone watch (or listen to) Ellen DeGeneres's standup on airline experiences? Hilarious!

What's also hilarious is how pax whine like 6 year olds when there isn't a meal on their flight. You can't win.

lol how true. Generally speaking though (in many of my experiences), a lot of pax tend to act like 6 year olds about everything; I think they checked their brains in with their luggage at the ticket counter.

example (true story - onboard an A320):
Q: "Excuse me, but umm, where is row 18B?"
A: "Well Ma'am, you're standing in front of row 1. Row 18 will be 17 more rows back. On the right."
Response: "Are you sure?"
Me: *smile and nod*

Psycho reaction for a lack of "chicken." However, maybe it makes up for the time I felt like hitting some AA F/A's on a HNL-ORD flight...they were half way through the plane, telling everyone that nothing was left except for vegetarian meals, yet were found by myself and another guy waiting in line for the lav to be taking 2 and 3 of the supposedly depleted entrees each and combining them on plates for their own consumption. Boy did that galley curtain close fast!

But some airlines do not have a row 13, or they start with different numbers after first class in order to make sure, that every first coach row starts with the same number regardless of the size of first/business class.

Or take the numbering of the rows on the Swiss narrow body airbus fleet. There, the number of the rows goes through on the A321, with the exception of the missing row 13. On the A320, we jump from row 17 directly to row 25 and on the A319 from 16 to 28...

There fore I would argue that the passenger asking where row 18 is, must be a very experienced air traveller, which is not the case with the flight attendant!

Wow. Are you serious?...wow.

I would argue that the passenger should just start walking until they see the big number 18 on the overhead, and not ask stupid questions...

Nice argument, but I'll beg to differ. While I won't pretend to be the world's most experienced traveler (particularly working for a primarily-domestic discount carrier), it doesn't take a rocket scientest (much-less a *very experienced air traveller*) to take one look at our cabin, and realize that it's all one section. And it takes even less brain power to look up at the row number, and keep on counting  smile . I'm sure even the most experienced travelers do that every now and again.

Further, to question the validity of the F/A's assurance of the location of the row would be rather asenine, wouldn't it? After all, inexperienced with other A320s as I may be, I know *our* A320s like the back of my hand. Again, 17 rows behind row 1, on the right. Smile and nod.  wink

I've never seen FAs eat Y food. I always see them eating F/C food. I've also never seen a surplus of vegetarian meals. Airlines generally only board them if they are pre-ordered. Anyway, I hope you wrote to AA about the incident.

This is a very practical approach. I did it once on a Thai MD-11, when my friends trusted me to bring them directly to our seats. We were assigned seats in row 47 (or somthing) and were somewhere in row 29, when I thought it will be quite a few rows to our row 47. Next time I looked at the number, we were in row 63! What a mess to move foreward... And how embarassing! They too, they had this jumbing numbers.

This guy should have been on a JR flight from LAX-MZT with a friend of mine. When the F/A got to his row all that was left were Chicken burritos. NO MORE BEEF! She said to the last remaining rows.
