Anyway - seated in MCE and I ordered a vodka tonic from the FA. Delivered. 30 mins later, as the FA passed, I asked if I could pull another. He sort of double checked me, pulled out his phone, said - Mr Jet Ranger - Im so sorry, I meant to come and say hello and thank you for your custom. Why arent you up front tonight? I was like - no space. He said - anything you want its no problem. More drinks? Sure - Ill keep em coming. And he did.

Ive had worse drink services in F recently, than I got that evening.

It's supposed to be $9, but I won't charge you." So there's some ambiguity, at least in that one FA's mind.

im surprised to see this thread. there should be no confusion. MCE unlimited drinks. period. but YMMV based on FA mood and IQ.

1 free comp alcohol drink + snack in Y if EXP/CK vs MCE unlimited drinks, but no free snacks unless EXP/CK.

Complimentary drink & snack in economy for EXP & CK (consolidated)
