I think that we may be missing the point slightly. One person mentioned this, but the real reason behind this was not so much the cut in food costs, it is that they can cut back (yet again) on Flight Attendants. I would assume that most flights will carry FAA minima. I mention this because I remember that on one 757 service out of SNA, they told me that as it was a dinner service on the way back from DFW, they would be picking up an extra FA. I assume that these will all go now. I assume equally that this is being done on HNL and not on London say, because they know that they would not be able to compete.

One wonders if upgrading will be worth the bother.

By the way, does two hours mean scheduled two hours or airbourne two hours? If the latter, how can one tell?
