Trip Report: DL 207 (ZRH-JFK) and DL 206 (JFK-ZRH) on 06/26/2012 23:57:07 MDT Print View

I recently completed a TATL R/T in BusinessElite on the old 767 metal.

The flight was fine and the FA staff were also terrific... One issue though:
On the flight to JFK, the wine was never offered with the main meal. All meals were delivered to the passengers, and then there was no wine offered. Only after a 20 minute wait, I had to ask the FA for some wine.
A wait of another 10 minutes to actually find the bottles, and I finally received a glass of wine.

To be fair, wine was offered with the first course, but when the main dish was served, there was no wine offered.

Before the snack, we were asked if we wanted something to drink. However, I was not informed that a snack was immediately pending.

Suggestion: Serve the wine with each course of each meal.

BTW: On the return trip, I indicated to the FAs that I would like wine offered when the food is served. The FAs had no problem meeting this request.

I am astonished that FAs would not know to serve wine simultaneously with the meal.

Not to be rude...but this is a backpacking site (specifically focused on lightweight backpacking at this).

This trip report doesn't even mention a pack used for air travel...much less getting out of a city. This may not be the best place for a "trip report" of this type. Look at some of the other threads to see what is usually expected from a trip report. The following link is a pretty good balance of city and wilderness in a trip report:

At the very least tell us about your time in the wilds! =)

Glad you got your wine.
