Onboard a US Airways regional jet (though painted in the American Eagle livery), something caught my eye in the pre-departure beverage service.
It looks like American is using bigger plastic cups for their pre-departure and select in-flight service! For those of you in First Class, don’t worry. Your in-flight drinks are still in real glasses, and still with the etched American logo on the side.
I was always amused with the half sized cups, as I know many airlines use them. They barely hold a quarter can of soda, when combined with ice, and you can pretty much down one in a few seconds.
This is the first I’ve seen these larger cups aboard American, so I apologize to those of you that have noticed this before. For me, this is the flight that is allowing me to be Executive Platinum for the following year, so after 100,000 miles of flying, with a majority being on American mainline jets, and some US Airways, this is the first I’ve noticed this cool new feature.
Sure, it’s small, but it’s an earmark towards customer service, which I like. Plus, it requires less refills on the part of the flight attendant. 🙂
Has anyone else noticed this new feature?
