Standard Dasani water bottle at the seat, plus a pre-departure offer of sparkling wine. A very welcome surprise!

3/22
AS184 FAI-ANC

Bottled water at the seat. Orange Juice and sparkling wine offered as PDB. My Mimosa was very good.

Drink orders taken before departure, served after takeoff with the snack basket after that. Excellent service on this short flight.

Boeing 737 series have closets. Airbus does not. Cannot comment on others.
We have to ask to have coats hung up. or more entertaining..... watching passengers from Y come forward and open closet , thinking it is the lav, looking confused and spinning around looking for other doors.

175s have them too. I was stuffing a down vest into the overhead and they kindly insisted on hanging it up.

Ditto here: I had three F transcon flights this week (BWI RT and JFK), and none had PDB offered, just regular small water bottles.

Just as well. Iím busy working on this flight and it would have made me sad to turn down a mimosa

4/11 AS 1158 10:20 SEA/LAX
Water at seat. NO. PDB offered.
Boarding started at 9:35. Entire flight boarded and seated by 10 am.
With only 8 in F, it would seem like PDB would be easy.
Push back from gate at 10:30.
FA ‘s just chatted with each other.
offer of beverage occurred at 11:15. So, 1 1/2 hours after boarding.

4/6 AS 175 MKE-SEA 19:00
Bottled water at seat. No PDB offered. No welcome aboard or greeting.
F cabin was less than half full & boarding was on time.
Beverage service took a looong time to get started, but service was pleasant thereafter.
