Hello. I was wondering how Airlines cater their regional aircraft. If anyone has details please say the airlines name what catering eqip they use and how they do it. I am not expecting that they pull a LSG sky service chef truck up to a CRJ, But we'll se. Thanks all

Here at STR, Swissair/Crossair Saab 2000/340 are usually catering at ZRH/BSL/GVA. Just the two nightstops are catered at STR. They stop the truck in front of the aircraft, take the containers out of the truck and carry them up the small stairway. But of course, it's not an LSG sky service chef truck, it's "Gate Gourmet - an SAir relations company"!

At ASA's hubs in ATL and DFW, they have catering crews that replenish supplies from a list the FA provides. If it's the first flight of the day, the catering was done the night before, the only thing they have to bring on is ice and the adult beverages.

I can tell you one thing. Regionals often get in trouble with the mainlines for offering better services. They are often forced to cut back service and products just so their service is the same but, not better.

You are right. Regionals do offer better service most times, than mainline airlines. Comair F/A's came around and offered snacks continuesly throughout the flight. I liked that. The only problem is no meals, but they make up for that by stuffing you with snacks.
