Alaska’s “midcon” meal service is truly subpar.
Houston-Seattle is 1,874 miles. It departs at 6:25pm. The flight is scheduled at 4 hours and 45 minutes. First class gets a ‘snack’ — on Friday is was mushroom ravioli (5 large pieces) with a salad on the same plate. No meat or fish. No side(s). No dessert. Not acceptable for first class service.
On the other hand, the flight was wifi enabled (well worth it to me to catch up on days worth of work), and I had only paid $129 for the one-way ticket, confirmed upgrade at booking with an MVP Gold Guest Upgrade certificate..
Usually I just complain about never seeming to get pre-departure beverages on American. Last night I added something a little more substantive to my usual complaint:
On United that would have warranted a $250 e-cert.
Alright, Wing and a Prayer Blog, flame away…
