No Hot Drinks On Tu-154!

Sun Jun 15, 2003 8:02 pm

I was on a Tu-154 from KBP-SVO that lacked the neccessary equipment, to make hot tea or coffee, that was quite something...I read about it on the Aeroflot Forums, but I never experienced it..
Was it that hard to stick a hot pot in?

Not only Tu154's

I once flew from VIE to LGW on a Dan Air 146. They could not serve any hot drinks because there was some kind of fault that delayed the flight.

But I guess this thread really belongs to the trip reports forum.

I flew KBP-SVO-KBP in March and it was the same thing. I think it is just that particular plane because i've been on other SU 154's that included coffee.

I've been on many TU-154 flights and as far as I remember, hot drinks were always available.
Should say though, I did get a hot beer once! I was told the fridge was out of order. What the hell!!! One less cold beer wouldn't do no harm  Smile

Tu-154s have all of the catering amenities of other airliners.

I have always had hot meals and drinks on board, and often cold beer too.

Sorry but this thread just perpetuates a silly western myth...

I am sure they had Vodka on board. This should have given you warm enough!

Well I've never flown on a Tupolev but I must point out that this has nothing to do with the fact it's a Russian aircraft. It can happen also on a Western built airliner like Ray Pettit mentions.
Chances are if you fly again on a TU-154, it won't happen again. You'll get all the service you deserve.

What I read on the Aeroflot Forum was that a couple of the Tu-154s have a fault that lacks the equipment...flying there we had it...
I really like the Tu-154 Big grin

I was on a West European flag carrier a few weeks ago on an A320 and I was really disappointed with the inflight service. I know that some CIS carriers are doing a lot better with their Tu-154s and Tu-134s.

The hot beer happened to me only ONCE on an Armenian Airlines Tu-154 flight and I strongly believe that it was the fault of the crew and not the plane or the fridge.

I regularly fly TU5 (about 10 times a year) and for the last four years, I have never, ever, experienced anything like that. I have flown Aeroflot's, Sibir, Kras Air, Pulkovo, you name it and whether it was regular or charter service, I have always had hot meals and drinks.

No complaints about that.
