Quoting Halophila (Reply 9): Wow is that a metal knife I see there? When did they bring those back on flights to/from the US? (Sorry in advance for being ignorant).
I think not providing metal cutlery is more of an economic decision than a security one... it'd probably be easier to break a plastic knife into a sharp pointy bit and stab someone with it than with a round-tipped metal knife. Plastic cutlery is disposable and cheap, whereas washing metal cutlery after every single flight can be expensive.

Does KE have wireless Internet, by what company, Boeing?
Also if I'm not wrong, when I flew AS about 2.5-3 months ago in First class they had metal utensils, but on Qantas LAX-AKL-LAX they had metal utensils, but plastic knifes. So I don't think ALL of the American airlines are ANTI-metal
to some people the sky is the limit, to aviation enthusiasts, its home!
