RE: Plastic Cups On The Ground In F & J?

@TravelsUK: Essentially, yes. According to posts above, US Airways has started using glass stemware for predeparture beverages on (at least some?) flights. Not sure I would call it "a time saving measure," other than it may prevent delayed pushback, but it's more a balance of giving customer longer ...

Even though the *intent* was to keep that ship in the dom...
