No Steak Knifes On-board. Does This Means....

Sat Sep 15, 2001 12:21 am

...no more beaf/steak and pork on-board jet, because you need a stake knife to cut them.

P.S. I know this is a silly question.

its not really a silly question because if the terroists took over the planes with just a knife that could mean the ban of any such things on board aircrafts.

Which brings up the point of 'Should we allow pilots to carry a handgun?'

Well, service on the airplane has always been a key thing for me. I like to be well fed, which doesn't happen often, but nonetheless... what now? What will airlines like MidwestExpress do, with their fancy accoutrements? Give us chopsticks? Spoons with serrated edges? No, that would cut open the corners of our mouth as we ate.... I am out of ideas.


The face of air travel is about to change forever, and it's not going to be a good change.

And we though service was bad now. How sick. We complained about how United would only serve plain chicken, whatever... and now they can't serve anything that requires cutting.

Geez.

Wouldn't that just be awful?!?!?

Haven't had a non-plastic piece of cuttlery on an aircraft in about 20 years. What are you kids whining about?

I'm willing to bet steak/chicken breast meals will continue, they'll just be pre-sliced.

Dunno if you guys noticed, but airlines like AI and LY have been doing this for years and still win awards for inflight culinary excellence.

I guess the next thing banned will be sharp pencils and pens.

Well, that's OK. Airlines can just serve more chicken.

In fact, I'm racking the brain to recall the last time I had something besides chicken as an airplane entree...must have been back when I was a vegetarian.

Haha, eating steak with a knife is more trouble than without one. I just stab the fork into it, lift it up and bite off pieces.

While we are at it, why not ban coffee on planes? It is hot, and a terrorist could throw it at someone and burn them.  Insane

Maybe in-flight magazines should be banned.After all a terrorist could threaten a flight attendant with a paper cut!

I've fly almost exclusively First Class on United and I can't recall *ever* getting a steak knife, even though I've had a wide range of entres...

Btw Superfly - United already serves Starbucks Coffee.... plus I doubt UA would allow a Starbucks... they would have to grind the beans on board, and have some pretty hot water :P

Maybe they should eliminate water on board. After all, if you throw it in somebody's face, it could make them distracted enough for you to pull something off.

While theyre at it, get rid of all those heavy and dangerous cans of soda. Those can be pretty dangerous.

(that was meant as a joke, but as i think about it, those CAN be pretty dangerous!)  Smile

Coke cans CAN be very lethal. We once injured many people at a high school basketball game. We were playing against our most hated competitors. Actually, now that I think about it, THEY threw the cans at OUR cheerleaders. Full cans. Shaken up and thrown. Concussions. You get the idea.

For this reason, I have written letters to my state rep's and also senators, trying to get legislation passed requiring airlines to use more efficient, far safer seven litre bottles. Keep in mind, I realize that stores don't sell 7L bottles, but they are available. I think this would make air travel safer.

Smiley face.

Seriously though, someone......JWenting..... said that he hadn't been given a non-plastic knife in years. That may be true- maybe you haven't. But who do you fly? Even in coach, on United and American, I was given stainless knives and forks with which to eat my synthetic chicken breast.

And you thought they only had fake breasts for people.

I am trying to contribute to the humor that we are searching for, pardon my very dry sense of humor, I realize that I am not really very funny.

Hey, I thought it was funny....And while we're at it, why don't we ban Life vests too? They're hazardous, kind of like plastic bags...you could wrap one around somebody's head and suffocate them.

from what I observed in the USA Americans like using their fingers to eat. So why not serve Mac Donald's i.e. "fingerfood" on flights?  Wink/being sarcastic
