RE: Limit On Drink Runs In Y On Long Flights?

So true on transatlantic flights on US airlines. After meal service cabin crew hide or dissapear. Sometimes you can spot a crew member passing with a bottle of lukewarm water, if your lucky but hardly any trolley runs.

RE: Airlines With Cleanest, Best-Kept Cabins

Bathroom and toilet cleanliness is one of the most important factors for me. LCCs in the UK and some UK charter airlines loos are not as clean as they should be, perhaps due to high loads and utilisation.

Icelandairs cabins and toilets and always clean.

RE: Rude Cabin Crew Experiences

I reckon a few cabin crew ought to take a 'night' job, if you know what I mean. I have seen many flirting outrageously over the years. Surely they arent meant to do that? they offer drinks not themselves, or they should do,

Rude Cabin Crew Experiences

Not sure about that, but maybe the better , bigger meal service, extra touches, hot towels, sweets etc andf that holiday atmosphere helped a lot in taking your mind off the tight seating, now we just have the tight seating but none of the extras.
