En route to Singapore on BA11, lovely crew. 1h30 into the flight was told no more LPGS left! How am I going to survive next 11h?!

Was just going to post something quite similar and there probably being a reason why it's all gone so quickly;-)

Could have been worse, I am 3 hours into my meal and still just eating course 6 of 9.
Bloody hate the Jal F and their food banquets

Why does the OP think we all need to know this? Save it for your friends on Facebook or WhatsApp (assuming you have any!)

I assumed it was a prelude to an enquiry as to how much compensation he can expect and how to go about negotiating more...
