Keep your expectations low and you will be excited. It's not such a bad question regarding alcohol. Knowing what to expect can reduce anxiety before a big trip. I've flown trans-pacific before on United and Northwest. My Delta flights this summer to Singapore were wonderful compared to my memories of those guys. I think you'll see I ate very well below. Also, it did help to get plus seats.
