Well, let me help you out then.😉 Champagne (no oj) offered on ord-sea #1053 today. Turned it down as I dont enjoy the sparkling wine in a can. But very helpful FA was able to rustle up a couple of splits of sparkling wine from the back once we got into the air. Went well with the Mandarin orange chicken.😃

Tue 7 Jan, AS8 SEA-EWR

posted 15 min departure delay, started boarding ~T-35; water bottles at seats (plus a half-empty one in the sidewall pocket at 1F :/ )

FA (Chanel) delivered menus ~T-20 and came around shortly thereafter offering coffee or orange juice; I asked if I could get sparkling wine in the juice, and she promptly obliged

NO PDB. FA could have cared less. No interaction with F passengers before take off. At 10,000 ft, came around to take drink and food orders.

AS1808 EWR-PDX
Dasani bottles at seats; I don’t seem to remember the FA (Kim) asking for drink orders when she handed out menu cards, but she was very attentive to beverages during the floght


AS2268 PDX-SEA
Dasani bottles at seats, FA came through with a tray of plastic cups of sparkling wine; I believe she also asked what people would like to drink during flight, but the captain declared that the FAs would remain seated because of turbulence (which, unsurprisingly, turned out to be nonexistent until ~4500 feet on descent)

AS140 ANC-PDX is being served pdb from a tray as I speak. Looks like mimosas. 7B seems to have acquired one as well... no love for row 10.
