One of my Japanese students flew on a Horizon Air flight from YVR-SEA on New Years and they gave out chocolate cookie cigars that were cellophane wrapped. So, I was wondering...have any of you experienced a flight during a holiday where the flight crew passed out some sort of gift? A candy? A souvenier? Anything special and unique from their regular service?
During Ramadan, Malaysia Airlines has a 'sweet' snack service if it happens to be time to break the fast.
Last year, on a domestic flight from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu, following the usual meal service (which went on as normal as there were a lot of non-Muslim passengers), the official breaking of fast time arrived shortly before landing and the crew came through the cabin with drinks and smart little gold boxes and inside was a slice of cake - with a little card wishing everyone a happy Ramadan with compliment of the airline.
The biggest surprise I ever had was when flying on Austrian from Brussels to Vienna a few days before Christmas:
A huge christmas tree shaped box of Belgian pralines was presented to EVERY passenger. Those chocolates were delicious........
I am still wondering, if this was a promotion by Brussels Airport or only be Austrian.
