You have such a laissez-faire attitude for not turning over to the French side. How dare you.

I can assure everyone on this forum that the French omelette tastes identical. You can now all stand down on your quest in finding another airline.

Sunday they had the smoked salmon and cheese on YVR-YYC. Different from the CRA cold salmon meal but it was delicious, never had this one on this route before. YYC-LAX had the omelette lol. I won't write about what was on OZ F

Oh, it was a short enough menu that I was able to read both sides!

However, I figured I'd stick to the usual English Omelette out of fear that venturing into unknown territory would result in disappointment and missing my usual omelette ;-)

An understandable reasoning.

Personally, I take the English omelette on westbound flights, and French omelette on the redeyes.

I thing the food on AC's French menu tastes better.

Are you trying to say it has some kind of je ne sais quoi?

Vinaigrette?

No vinaigrette the other day. Still mentioned on the menu, however. So perhaps they just failed to load it?

Also, there was an extra uniformed person on board. Armed with an ipad (or tablet) but not supporting service. Is that training or something?

Third, AC should perhaps learn that in English "curcuma" is called turmeric... Substitute for saffron on tourist trap paella. Possibly the proper ingredient for that tandoori chicken dish?

(No, real men don't eat chicken. I had the lamb. )

"Armed with an iPad"? LOL

I think you missed the brief discussion in another thread about AC's newish OSMs, Onboard Service Managers.

I've flown a couple of TPACs with different OSMs. Both seemed friendly enough, fancy uniforms, nicer fabric and colors etc. One of them at least took a few minutes to explain their jobs.....supposedly something like the ISMs on CX, BR.

I can't post other comments/observations on this topic on a public forum.

Also, I like turmeric but can't eat meals with curry. Carry on.....

I wonder if she noticed that the vinaigrette was missing?

Otherwise...27 items listed under this section:

"...this position will be responsible for promoting and achieving consistency of service on high yield flights creating a positive impact on the customer experience and developing and strengthening leadership capabilities of the Cabin Crew."

Another 25 qualification items listed below that.

It makes sense, of course, to have the OSM on "high yield flights".

Also, looks like AC hired as the top of the LinkedIn page shows:
"This job is no longer accepting applications."

I've seen a few in charges on the widebodies with ipads rather than printed out sheets.

I always forget, think its new and then wonder why it isn't standard

Which is why I wrote above, quoting from the LinkedIn job post:

"It makes sense, of course, to have the OSM on "high yield flights"."

She only talked with the guy in 1D. Not with me.

So I gess he was the high yield customer.

(Admittedly I was on a P fare.)
