ASA Inflight Service

What is the inflight service like on Atlantic Southeast Airlines? Does ASA serve meals? Also, does ASA have their own magizine besides Delta Sky?

Well, I haven't been on ASA for a couple of years now. What I remember were dirty airplanes and rude desk service people. Of course, that was when ASA had a extensive texas route system and flew to College Station. That is all I can recall

Side note: The reason I think that nobody wanted to fly ASA in texas was because of the aircraft they used, the EMB-110(horrid aircraft). VERY dirty and un-appealing to the eye.

Just in case you would like to know...the EMB-110 Bandeirante is the base for all ERJ's new and mock-ups, the Brasilia and all other of the companies success. It was built as a unique airframe and served well the routes it incorporated. Plus, the cleaning is up to the airline, it is their responsibilty allright. So, in aviation the looks of an aircraft (as in beauty) DO NOT mean much at all!

In case you didn't notice, I was referring to the way ASA kept up with its aircraft. Not the way Embraer made the plane. I am a big fan of Embraer and would like to not have my name be assossiated with the dislike of Embraer
Thank You

I was on ASA about 2 months ago, on a CRJ. I thought it was great. Lots of room (mostly because there were only 12 pax) and the people were nice. Aircraft was clean. No special magizine. I doubt they serve meals (I was on a late night flight). Got a soda and the normal little snack (peanuts or pretzels... can't remember). I liked the flight.

The Topic Of ASA Inflight Service

Wed Jun 16, 1999 11:59 pm

ASA's in-flight service is a bit better than mediocre. I fly often on the carrier's ATR72 service from Chattanooga to ATL, and notice each time the presence of their own in-flight magazine (contrary to other information) (I forget what it's called now) and staff that seem eager to help but not sure what to do. Beverage service on most of their short flights is taboo, especially those operated by ATR and Brasilia equipment, and I'm confident that Flyf15's meal service was provided because he was on a CRJ on a flight whose stage length was a bit longer than the 20min cruise time on the flight from CHA to ATL. I don't ever hesitate to fly ASA, and find their facilities in Atlanta to be first-rate...they even have their own underground passageway from their C-gates to Delta's concourse B, thus facilitating fast connections without the hassle of the transportation mall further down the concourse.
