"Out Of Chicken?" - Beat The F/A! AA 65 Incident

Tue Sep 26, 2006 9:58 pm

What NOT to do when they run out of your preferred choice onboard; for correct action read some trip reports! Wonder if they only had 1 can of Mountain Dew onboard  Smile

Fair use extract:

Maryland man was arrested at Kennedy Airport for hitting a flight attendant after she told him the kitchen had run out of chicken dinners, authorities said yesterday.

Pierre Delis, 36, who had been visiting relatives in Switzerland, allegedly went berserk on American Airlines Flight 65 from Zurich on Sunday, according to a criminal complaint filed in Brooklyn Federal Court....

At the defendant's arraignment, defense lawyer Florian Meidel asked U.S. Magistrate Steven Gold to tell jailers to feed his client because he hadn't had anything to eat since Sunday.

Meidel did not express a meal preference for his client.

That really is a fowl thing to do.

He really needs his head chicken, a psychological evaluation of some kind.
What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

My favourite when meal option run out from pax are. ' You should be carrying enough of every meal option for each passenger'.

Oh Ok we'll carry over 600 meals and then we'll have no room for passengers  Angry

Chicken, beef, is there really any difference when it comes to airline 'food'? I think it is the same overprocessed, over salted, covered in glop stuff anyway no matter if so called beef or chicken. Still, assulting or challanging an f/a over your food is bound to put you into jail and properly so nowadays. I hope this guy gets a nasty fine, 30 days in jail and on airline no-fly lists for a while. I am quite sure this guy will be fired from his job, has to face shame from his family and overall will be screwed for the rest of his life over his beheavor over chicken not being available.

Y'know, it's funny how many people agree with that sentiment, but when on a flight somewhere, wait in almost-desperate anticipation of that meal cart with its overprocessed, oversalted, covered-in-glop stuff.  biggrin  Anyone watch (or listen to) Ellen DeGeneres's standup on airline experiences?

lol how true. Generally speaking though (in many of my experiences), a lot of pax tend to act like 6 year olds about everything; I think they checked their brains in with their luggage at the ticket counter.

example (true story - onboard an A320):
Q: "Excuse me, but umm, where is row 18B?"
A: "Well Ma'am, you're standing in front of row 1. Row 18 will be 17 more rows back. On the right."

Psycho reaction for a lack of "chicken." However, maybe it makes up for the time I felt like hitting some AA F/A's on a HNL-ORD flight...they were half way through the plane, telling everyone that nothing was left except for vegetarian meals, yet were found by myself and another guy waiting in line for the lav to be taking 2 and 3 of the supposedly depleted entrees each and combining them on plates for their own consumption. Boy did that galley curtain close fast!

DOH! I wouldn't bite anyone for a crappy chicken dinner on AA.

As for only one can of Mountain Dew onboard, you can have it. I find it absolutely vile. Bleh!

But some airlines do not have a row 13, or they start with different numbers after first class in order to make sure, that every first coach row starts with the same number regardless of the size of first/business class.

Or take the numbering of the rows on the Swiss narrow body airbus fleet. There, the number of the rows goes through on the A321, with the exception of the missing row 13. On the A320, we jump from row 17 directly to row 25 and on the A319 from 16 to 28...

There fore I would argue that the passenger asking where row 18 is, must be a very experienced air traveller, which is not the case with the flight attendant!

Wow. Are you serious?...wow.

I would argue that the passenger should just start walking until they see the big number 18 on the overhead, and not ask stupid questions...

Nice argument, but I'll beg to differ. While I won't pretend to be the world's most experienced traveler (particularly working for a primarily-domestic discount carrier), it doesn't take a rocket scientest (much-less a *very experienced air traveller*) to take one look at our cabin, and realize that it's all one section. And it takes even less brain power to look up at the row number, and keep on counting  smile . I'm sure even the most experienced travelers do that every now and again.

Further, to question the validity of the F/A's assurance of the location of the row would be rather asenine, wouldn't it? After all, inexperienced with other A320s as I may be, I know *our* A320s like the back of my hand. Again, 17 rows behind row 1, on the right. Smile and nod.  wink

I've never seen FAs eat Y food. I always see them eating F/C food. I've also never seen a surplus of vegetarian meals. Airlines generally only board them if they are pre-ordered. Anyway, I hope you wrote to AA about the incident.

This is a very practical approach. I did it once on a Thai MD-11, when my friends trusted me to bring them directly to our seats. We were assigned seats in row 47 (or somthing) and were somewhere in row 29, when I thought it will be quite a few rows to our row 47. Next time I looked at the number, we were in row 63! What a mess to move foreward... And how embarassing! They too, they had this jumbing numbers.

This guy should have been on a JR flight from LAX-MZT with a friend of mine. When the F/A got to his row all that was left were Chicken burritos. NO MORE BEEF! She said to the last remaining rows.

Are you sure... because I thought several airlines skip ROW #13. Like KLM... goes from 12 to 14. In that case if you are standing in front of row 1, Row 18 will be 16 rows back!

Passengers are sometimes indeed snotty... but let's not give pass to airline employees. While I have met several extremely professional ones, I have also come across just as many divas and people who think they are gods gift to travel industry.

I won't argue that (I've flown on some airlines where 13 - as well as some other rows - are omitted), but on our airplanes, row 13 is not skipped. Trust me on that one. smile  If that changes, I'll know.

I don't mean to come across as snotty by any means, though one would think that most people would just look up at the OHBs as they walk through the cabin (regardless of whether row 13 is omitted or not). What I found funnier than her first question was her response: "are you sure?". Holding everything else aside, I see more of these planes than most of our customers. I'd like to think that I know if there's a row 13 or not!  wink .

OK he went over board 100% even if he "just" touched the f/a...... but I had a similar experience with AC 878/879 now we all know that flight flys from Canada to India with a stop in ZRH, very convenient for my travel, well on 878 we had 2 choices chicken or some Indian "bean" dish, by the time they got to me guess what............ nada no chicken, ok tried it did not like it ask if they had maybe some beef?? oh on sir only beans............

But 879 took the cake, again all chicken gone only beans.. me and 4 others got very irritated and asked how about beef/pork oh no sir beans only.....
the point is why the f... do they not ask you when you book the flight what would you like..... we all paid our tickets, for now the solution is

I avoid AC to ZRH and fly to YUL and on Swiss metal to ZRH, and the meals and service rock on Swiss between YUL-ZRH kudos to the crews who fly that route.

Again I make it clear "no chicken" is no excuse for touching/hitting anybody

I am not sure if it is a problem with functional literacy or hoping that row 35 will suddenly appear between row 5 and 6 in Business or First Class. In any case, I've frequently been surprised by the mystified looks in the eyes of some passengers as they scan between their boarding card and the cabin looking for their seat as if it is randomly placed and perhaps also moving about dynamically as they board.

Quoting BWI757 (Thread starter):
Maryland man was arrested at Kennedy Airport for hitting a flight attendant after she told him the kitchen had run out of chicken dinners, authorities said yesterday.

Sounds like the passenger flew the coup, one must learn to wing it when confronted with adversity - damn chickensh*t...  Wink

This is absolutely outrageous. These idiots need to be thrown in jail. Why is it that some morons feel that the simple act of traveling by air gives them the right to act so ridiculously? They call it "air rage" and all that crap, just like what happened back in 1999-2000 when that Continental GA at EWR was almost paralized by some moron there. This is just simply inexcusable.

I tell you, this story just proves how some folks "can't" live without their chicken!! I've seen before how people get into fights because someone took their chicken (this one is just another similar story, this time in an airplane).... I tell you, DON'T MESS with people who love their chicken....
And really, all that chicken is, a dead bird that was made of growth hormones cooked with tonz of fattening oil and seasoning.... that's probably why he's so messed up in the head... just too much chicken-hormones!!

Not to contribute yet another bad chicken pun, but this one needs to be tarred and feathered.

Seat assignments are funny - I'm usually in first class, and if I'm in row 1 or 2, you have no idea how many passengers are already lost - I point up to the row numbers, and tell them to watch the number, but I guess that's way way too complicated for some.

But, then, there are also the elderly or semi-infirm passengers who do not board early (people needing extra time, etc). Once a poor woman, good 75+ with a cane was in row 20+ on an airbus, and it was a short flight - I said to her that I was sorry, I had taken her seat - got up, moved back to row 20 something or other, and had her sit in first class.

On a transatlantic/transpacific flight I wouldn't do that, nor would I on a flight from the east to the west coast of the US, (although I did once for a really infirm passenger) - for the most part, I just sleep, so what does it matter? And, since I usually have to drive after I land, I sure don't need the free drinks on any domestic flight

I could understand this behavior, if the galley had run out of filet mignon, but chicken?

Seriously, though, in today's world, one must expect that your choice may be gone, by the time the F/A takes your entree order. Further, other than expressing displeasure in a calm manner, any sort of angry tone or action is likely to get a passenger in trouble.

Quoting Swissy (Reply 35):
the point is why the f... do they not ask you when you book the flight what would you like..... we all paid our tickets, for now the solution is

That is exactly what I wonder too? You first promise something, create an expectation in the minds of your consumer and then decline the same. This is classical marketing goof up.

I have experienced this several times on LH on one of their sectors out of SE Asia. Apparently they always run out of non veg. Last week when I traveled it happened the fourth time in six months. What annoyed me even more was that the FA was not slightest apologetic on behalf of her airline. She was more like take it or leave it. I just told her smilingly that I realized no matter what LH did they would never be even half as good as SQ and wished her goodnight. Sure this time she was embarassed.

Quoting Swissy (Reply 35):
Again I make it clear "no chicken" is no excuse for touching/hitting anybody

I agree
