12/24 LAX-HNL and 12/29 HNL-LAX: Water, prosecco or OJ. Nice crews, especially on HNL-LAX (much younger than the median, attentive and efficient).

Last three Polaris TATLs in December: zero PDBs. I asked about it on the most recent flight because I genuinely wondered if it had gone away. "Late boarding" was the reason given, though there were a bunch of FAs hanging out in the galley chatting throughout the boarding process.

Last Friday IAD-xxx ERJ175 I got a PDB of my choice. First time ever since they brought back PDBs that I've gotten my choice on an Express flight. Great FA and she offered another drink in air (as expected). Flight was only 58 minutes.

99% of the time ERJ175 Express flights offer zero PDB for me - not even water. The return flight to IAD had zero PDB and almost no service in the air "due to turbulence" which was non-existent.

EWR to MEM 1/13/23. Water or sparkling. Sparkling is Gambino Italian champagne. Just what you would expect leaving out of NJ.
