While flying back from F2B’s Charleston Sessions last week I was stuck in economy class. Partly this was my own fault as I gave up my First Class seat and took an earlier flight home. The only Economy plus seat was a middle seat in the exit row and I chose the only other empty seat on the plane. The last row aisle seat.
I am not complaining because this gave me ample time to get up and talk to the flight attendants. One of them leaned over and wait “I will tell you a SECRET” and of course my ears perked up. This usually would not be a benefit to me as I am usually upgraded to First Class, but she proceeded to whisper to me that unedr new United Airlines rules they are not allowed to give out the can of beverages to passengers unless they specifically asked for the can. They are only allowed to fill a small plastic cup with your beverage choice.
So the lesson learned is to ALWAYS ask for the can when the beverage cart comes around. They would personally prefer to just hand out the cups of ice and cans, so the passengers can fill the cup them selves. She said “It is ridiculous to try to fill 18 cups with one can!” I would say that would be a miracle. I hope they keep the 12 oz can and never change to the mini or sharing cans.
So if Lucky ever gets stuck in economy, he better ask for the can!
