Lol forget about the drinks, you’ll be lucky if your plane takes off on time nowadays

@Director that was true prior to COVID but not anymore. Delta fired way more employees than needed to during COVID and as a result they have lost the on-time and flight cancellation / delay advantage for which they used to charge a premium (which you can see with the summer meltdowns and cancellations they’ve suffered like the other airlines).

Looking at the BTS airline performance stats, it’s the luck of the draw with each of the Big 3 alternating meltdowns, and this will not get better for a while - thank Bastian for ruining what was the best ground operations for a U.S. airline.

For all the American hate - I only ever have a problem if I am the last flight in the day and crew will time out. If you keep it to the mornings you will rarely have an issue, or maybe itd cause I'm at a hub.

Yes, MCE gets them. Main issue could be, and I’ve flown ~10 segments the past few months as an EXP, is they won’t give you doubles. But I’ve had no issue hitting the call button or telling the FA I’d need another one even without a drink cart and getting it. Just be assertive, there’s no limit by TOC of MCE.

Update, flight was only 30 minutes delayed and the crew gave me a double off the bat - not a bad night. For all the AA hate in this thread, it wasn't half bad.

Hi guys I have an offer from Accenture and no issues in terms of CTC, job profile or other things. The only thing I am skeptical about is the job security.
