|So I read the safety card.|
|Alaska is pretty cool!|
|It was pretty fun to watch people watch different movies from the back of the plane.|
|Every passenger gets a little touchscreen with a |
headphone jack and a USB port.
|Watching Gladiator with Chinese subtitles while approaching Alaska.|
|Passengers get a huge selection of movies, TV shows, music, games |
as well as the good old time to destination/map screen.
Food and beverage service hasn't really changed very much in a decade, and I can't say I envy the job of planning or preparing airline menus. Many people have a very limited comfort range when it comes to food, some of it is cultural and some of it is personal. On an international flight between two regional hubs, the cultural and personal combinations of the myriad of passengers means that you can't be too adventurous or you'll risk starving picky eaters, but if you go too bland you'll get a bad response from the airline's food focus group.
|Served between Taipei and Tokyo. This was an attempt at 肉燥飯. The sauce was actually not bad and the rice was properly steamed. The fruit was not edible and the roll was gross. But it looked like it was missing a tray of something.|
|Snack served between meals on the flight between Tokyo and Detroit. Cookies were the best part.|
Finally, airlines should distribute pills that knock people out so they're not puking and so that kids aren't causing a ruckus. Kids are increasingly poorly behaved because they have permissive and worthless parents. Also, on a particularly bad landing in bad weather on the flight between Taipei and Tokyo, there were people puking into bags throughout the cabin. It was gross and the problem was exasperated by the tendency for airlines to serve meals about 60-90 minutes before landing. The smell in the cabin was well... gross.
