Wife will not be happy about this. Debating whether to tell her now or just wait, let her find out and claim I had no idea!

Regards
Act surprised and then ask if the FA can go check in the back; theres always more in the back of a store, right?

Well, one can bring it onboard. The FA needs to serve you, which may or may not happen.

There are mixed quantities of both so one may get lucky.

I had 🐃 the other day. Was interesting to try.

Oh, I investigated that during the pandemic when services were suspended and limited. It was a hard no due to liability concerns. 🤙🏻🥃

AS has been bouncing between Cruzan and Bacardi since last November. I like both so no problem with the change.

Did not expect it but very happy to be served Elysian Space Dust instead of the Anchor IPA on AS450 CMH-SEA this evening. The Anchor wasn't awful, but this stuff is money.

I am always tempted to have my wife carry on a bottle. They say I cant drink my own beverage, but what about some other passengers?

Good try, but the CFR says "No person may drink any alcoholic beverage aboard an aircraft unless the certificate holder operating the aircraft has served that beverage to him."

Just wondering, but does it address passengers ability to take the mini bottles off of the aircraft? It seems in the last few years the FAs give them to you unopened, hence the possibility.

Woodford as well as Buffalo Trace are ok with me.

(Especially, if the Buffalo Trace is served with Cocchi Vermouth, a dash of bitters, and a Luxardo Cherry)

Im hoping thats the case, as Peatos and Himalaya are generally not a top tier snack for customer recognition. Im betting it didnt sell. Am surprised why AS doesnt simply sell the widely known snacks like pringles, and M&M. So AS sounds like they will provide these snack box for High Elites in Main Cabin. This is what they should have done in the first place 😝

As for discontinued main cabin snacks as F comps, no problem as we are always willing to try something, and we did like peatos and himalaya

I see that they are no longer listed as snacks for purchase

Im hoping those lime and lemon packets stay on those were a surprise add for this past year I did like.

These have been around for a while; they are my non alcoholic drink of choice coupled with sparkling water. They also added grapefruit recently, which I've been digging, so hopefully that means they won't be going anywhere.

I also experienced part of the catering change earlier than expected. AS306 BOS-SEA this evening, I asked for a bourbon and was told that they recently switched to Buffalo Trace. I preferred the Woodford, and will now be on the hunt for a new default drink order.
