A few months ago a friend told me that he flew AS for the first time and under his food was a verse from the bible. I have flown AS quite a bit and had never noticed until tonight when I flew BOS-SEA. I usually don't eat the plane food in coach because it isn't very good but I was starving and the sandwiches seemed ok. Under my sandwich was a piece of paper with a picture of a sunset and a bible verse! I couldn't believe it. I'm not religous at all and find this a little odd. Anyone care to inform me on how long this has been going on?
With the cutbacks in food service I haven't seen one of those cards in months. Maybe they only distribute them when they are serving something that resembles a meal rather than with the soda and pretzels. I wonder who makes the decision regarding this distinction. In any case, I personally would prefer that they spend their time and money on something else when they are having such serious service problems. But yes, they've been doing it for a long time. Those who don't enjoy the little commercial can just discard it.

I thought it was to remind passengers that, hey, if Jesus can go through 40 days and nights in the desert without food or water, you shouldn't be complaining about the lack of food that you are getting on this flight.
To subject a customer to religious proselitizing is stupid. Why risk offending someone who does not share your particular faith?
To those posters who support this. What would you do if you got a quotation from Buddha or the Koran?
