The midflight snack is pitifully small, but crews always end up with extras which are available in the galley. Don't be afraid to ask for two, or get up and grab a couple extra from the galley after...

If it's any consolation, those birds (747) are being retired in the next few months. Replacement 777-300ERs do have PTVs in economy.
