Any flight I have ever been on that flew to Europe from Canada always provided fee meals ( up to and including about 6 months ago ) I never drink on airplanes but I'm pretty sure you can get wine with your meal if you ask

When I took 30 days vacation time (leave) in the Army, I flew home to Georgia in a Lufthansa flight. This was in 1986. All the beer was free. So I stuck with beer. I forget which brand, but it was a good German brand.
The issue is not p*ssy. The issue is monkey.

Nixer, just curious as to the gender of this "17 yr old surf kid from CA" (and please pick from the 2 major ones or you'll confuse me).
EDIT: Oops, sorry. I gotta Winger song stuck in my head. I see "FIVE stewardesses." So you're a member of the mile high club, and then some?

I used to fly business class Glasgow to/from London quite regular and we always got a complimentary 33cl bottle of champagne, I had quite a stock of them as I didn't drink it, gave them to my mum when I used to go visit her. Breakfast was served on the way down and dinner served on the way back to Glasgow.
Then company policy changed, from flying Business with British Midland to flying cattle class with Sleazy Jet, Ticket for Business class on BM was around £135 each way took off from Glasgow 07:30, landed at Heathrow 08:45 and in the office at 09:05, Easy Jet, at airport for 05:30 to queue for a seat, got into Stanstead Luton at 09:00 then bus to train, train to London change station and out to Sunbury (beside Heathrow) in office for 11:00. When I pointed out to them that it was costing more to the company and getting less work done in a day they shrugged their shoulders and said new rules from the American head office, we had to use the cheapest flights. They saved £60 on the flight then spent £40 on the bus/train and then there was the lost manhours on top of that not including the fact that you had almost put in a full work day just traveling. Policy was changed a week later and back to flying BM Then I was promoted and moved to head office in Sunbury.
Edit: Miss that, having a chauffeur waiting for you at the arrivals and a Mercedes limo to take you to the office, we did try one of the sales men picking me up from Luton airport but it took even longer to get to the office.
