  1. I always enjoy my flights on Delta. Coming from the UK, I enjoy the US style of service and almost all Delta crews do a good job.

  2. I like all of those additions except for the change in Coffee. I remember when AA served Starbucks on their flights (years ago, when I was but a lad). It was horrendous.

    I have a friend who is fond of saying that “Starbucks has only one roast…too much” – though now they technically have two: Two much, and not enough (blonde roast?)

    Anyway, something about the dulled sense of taste in the air brings out a lot of the burnt, nasty flavor of Starbucks coffee. Seattle’s Best, in my opinion, actually puts out a decent cup of coffee in the air.

    Of course, if you really want a great cup o’ joe on the plane, you can always take matters into your own hands:
