FA just unloaded the snack basket into carryon

just watched the FA in Y unload the F snack basket into her carry on and load a few liters of water in it too.

Didn't I just read where they fired some FAís for the same thing?

Is there any relevance that the FA in Y did this, as opposed to any other more premium cabin FA?

I recall once seeing an FA perform Jesus-like miracles, as he turned Crystal Geyser into Vodka (by emptying the minis from the cart into what was a bottle of Crystal Geyser).

CX said they will discipline FAs (including termination and according to the company some FAs are already fired) for taking service items form aircraft. According to the company such actions is commonly and widely done among FAs at CX and costing the company large amount, the company said it is not like one FA taking a fork from aircraft, it is far more than that the company claims.

I seen on AA flights when sitting in F FA putting galley items in their bags before landing, such as snacks, bottle drinks, etc. Wonder how strict is a policy at AA for FAs not taking any service items off aircraft for their own use.

Why tell us? If you want to report the FA, snap a few photos and report the FA to AA. If you don't, why mention it?

Why alert AA at all? I wouldnt as long as its at the end of the flight and no one was turned away and told sorry none left. Now if I saw the FA stashing it waiting for the end of the flight to put it in their bag that would be something else. Heck we also arent suppose to taking food or drink off the flight, especially the beer,wine or scotch etc

There have been stories about crashpads fully stocked with minis, for probably as long as there have been airlines.

Yeah, just screw pax on the next flight if the galley was double catered. Iíve been on too many flights where in F we were told meager booze offerings as last flight was a shuttle and the liquor cart is almost empty in both cabins. And beef jerky was too expensive to keep in the basket... because FAs inflated catering costs perhaps?

I donít begrudge anyone stashing one or items from onboard snack basket or the lounge... but emptying the entire basket. Just ... NO.

Fake news.

Let the FAs and other pax take what they want. It all gets tossed anyway.

You can see who has the morals here lol. Actually you can tell who here owns the businesses, and who thinks the world owes them. I know itís a big company and they get paid well. But no one kidnapped and forced them to take the job. So what? Make you own benefits? Realign your compensation structure? You donít like your job or your pay, then quit. Donít steal.

grab a couple things, fine. Itís pilfering, Empty the plane and your a thief. Where does it end. Stuff on eBay? Selling non rev buddy passes?
