Seriously??? 8 vodka minis served by FC FA to one Passenger?
 
Just got off a flight (that I will not reveal the flight #)... The FC FA served a passenger 2 minis PDB and 6 during a 45min flight.

The passenger was drinking them as shots and the FA knew it / witnessed it, but kept serving...

When I approached the FA and asked if that was too many, he said the passenger wasn't driving, but rather going to a NFL game this weekend... How the hell does he know this????:confused:

I know there are technically no rules, but rather the FA's make "judgement calls" on what is too many, but again... 8 minis in approx 1hr 15min? I have seen over service, but this takes the cake...

The next thing you know we will have another drunk shut off alcoholic service like the ABQ route for a few years and ruin it for everyone that is responsible.

I know many flight attendants personally. Some follow the one drink per hour rule and others hand it out like candy, but this was pathetic... It was as if the FA was asking the passenger to get in a car, hit the highway and kill and innocent family. Sick in my mind!!!

Curious on what others think about this irresponsible action by a FA...

"Irresponsible" assumes info that wasn't in your post. It's possible that the FA did have a good indication from a brief conversation that the passenger wouldn't be driving, for example.

Just because you, based on less than complete info, consider it "irresponsible" doesn't necessarily make it so.

LMAO

Jim - 8 in a little over an hour is pure stupid.

Why defend a FA that is irresponsible????

If it bugs you, report it to FAA. Alcohol abuse isn't just about driving.

MYOB

If that's your biggest concern in life, you have it pretty well.

In your opinion.

Or you can mind your own business. . . If the pax did nothing to disturb you, why would you even notice what and how much he was drinking? Being a neighborhood watch grandma is not pretty.

Nutzz Oct 26, 13 4:28 pm

You are all correct - It was none of my business and it shouldn't be my biggest concern in life now or ever... as I don't abuse alcohol.

I will drop it and sorry if I offended anyone.

My only point was it was excessive drinking in any setting (from MPOV)... Condemn me for being alert / concerned.

Yes 8 shots in one hour is excessive. Stating as such to the FA is appropriate. Thank you.

Do you also check if FA washed her hands after attending a lady's room? Because, you know, hands must be clean!

Its really sad when I meant to post a message regarding excessive drinking and then .......s like "burlax" takes it way off the beaten path.

MOD - Please delete posting... It isn't worth the dumbASS comments.

The 'dumbASS' comments are about one's attempting to police behavior that doesn't harm that person but of which that person ( for whatever reason ) disapproves. Before you go down that path, please consider whether you really want other people to do the same to you.

Eight vodka minis is 2 or 3 Martinis. Good sized drinks. But I've done that lots of times.

As for complaining to the FA about it? I'd say either report the FA or MYOB.

Cheers,

I've seen far worse at suburban bars on an average Friday night, and in the place I'm thinking of, there's no local taxi service and the nearest bus stop is about a mile away. Everyone is driving. It's indeed a lot of booze, but if the passenger was behaving and wasn't driving, then it's nothing to be alarmed over, in my book.

Wow...what a busy-body. Counting drinks? You must be very bored.

Look at your smartphone, a good looking pax, or read Skymall.

Otherwise you need to participate here http://wctu.org/

And unless it impacts you, MYOB or join the NSA.

Sorry for the rant, but this is nuts!
