What domestic airline have you been on where they gave you more than one can in Coach? Also, have you ever been on a Flight where they only served drinks in Coach, no snacks?

I can tell you about a domestic flight on which I got complimentary champagne. That flight was with Air Jamaica Express from Kingston (KTP) to Montego Bay (MBJ) on a Shorts 360. They served first biscuits and juice then out came the bubbly! I flew that flight on 29 September. As a result of delays, however, the return flight the next day was bereft of champagne service (but the other service was the same).

At home, POS-TAB domestic flights feature no service at all, due to the short duration (15 minutes). Years ago mints were handed out inflight.

Hop to it, fly for life!

In Switzerland, Crossair serves champagne/freshly squeezed orange juice/
or any other beverage, all in real glasses, alongside some fine Swiss chocolate,
wet wipes and snacks on domestic flights as short as Geneva-Basle, only about
25-30 mins.

Now, if that isn't service, I don't know what is!!!

Sounds much better than typical US Service! All we would get on a 25 Minuate flight is maybe a drink and thats it, served in a plastic cup.

On my UA flight last August, the FAs did at least 4 rounds of beverage service on the 4 hour ORD-SFO flight. The first class FA also offered free wines as well and offered me some without checking my ID. Although I was tempted, I had to turn down the offer   The flight also served lunch as well. Overall it was a great flight, albeit delayed for 3 hours, and the FAs were really really friendly.

To finish they gave us hot towels.

Would have to be UA135 ORD-SFO in C class. They gave me a lot of coke throughout the flight. They give cans with ice. The glasses were like UA domestic first.

Also UA132 SFO-ORD in F class. They give great beverage service!! I was in 4D of a 744. Tea was on the console thing for any F class passengers to grab.
