I just got back from Thanksgiving break today and noticed that DL served drinks in larger cups today than they did a week ago. It seems like they are almost double the size of the old plastic cups. It's nice to see DL is adding things back to the Y flying experience!

Quoting Fewsolarge (Reply 4): Um, are you talking about the beverage service or the flight attendants?
Cue the half or whole can joke.....
I guess giving a little more in the beverage service is just one of the little things airlines can do to make the journey a little more pleasant. I swear the small cups that many airlines use holds about 3-4 oz of drink after they've stuffed it full of ice (Some of these F/As must have worked at a fast food place prior to becoming F/As). You take about three sips and you're left sucking on ice cubes if they don't give you the whole can.

I've always gotten the 8 ounce cups in F and Y on Delta ever since they got rid of glassware (last time I saw a glass was April 2004 in the F cabin of a 757) - every other DL flight has been with the larger (8 oz) cups - I was quite surprised earlier this year when I flew AA and UA and got the smaller cups - wasn't used to it at all.

Actually, the plastic glasses in YC (and in FC domestically) hold just shy of 11 ounces of liquid. Delta has had them for a few years now. With just the right amount of ice, one can of soda/juice fills two glasses.
