Just curious...I always have heard that US carrier does not provide free wine/beer for economy class and good in-flight amenities on their int'l route. Is that true?
I always noted that economy class on international carriers are always have red/white wine and beer on their cart which provide free to economy passengers. Yet, amenities are also great for economy class on foreign carrier than US carrier. I traveled both (50/50) economy and business class and always prefer foreign carrier for my international route. I only travel 1 time with US carrier (TWA) and never again. That is why TWA going under the water.
Being in IAH
home airport, I'd like AF
, Lufthansa, BA
, KLM equally for European routes. And Eva, Cathay, Japan, Singapore are great for Asia routes with connection in LAX
. I'm still very reluctant to try US carrier for my international trip. However, CO
is always my #1 choice for US domestic flight.
As I remembered, most of the Asian airline does provide hot towel to Y class before take off LAX
. The slipper for your feet if you want to take off your shoes. Free headset. Ceramic plate with silverware (I guest that US carriers will be plastic all the way). A small package (tooth Brush, lotion, mouth wash, towel).
If US carriers so cheap and cut cost then why are they post net loss on their income statement?
