Obviously I don't mean BUDGET airlines where you gotta pay for that shit.
Me: gin and tonic. Always.
or if i'm getting a hot meal, the red wine if i like the look of it.
SOMETIMES brandy and ginger.
(obviously if business/1st, the champagne as it gets you drunk faster with less peeing trips.)
Hardly ever anywhere else. Unless hungover.
Will go for a Red Wine with the meal though.
A Bloody Mary is the best hangover cure.
not in the mood for owt special when i'm in the air.
always have a brandy before flying though.
But fair dos. I spose larger goes better with a savoury snack,
fucking hell niki.
I never drink it anywhere else, but wouldn't hesitate when on a plane. Light, refreshing, decent alcohol content.
i don't really wnat an alcoholic drink when i'm flying, just want water really, but it's 'free' so I feel complelled to get my moneys worth.
after really going for it.
can't help it though. free champagne? rude not to.
to get drinks. in the end I stopped bothering but when we landed, boy, was I grateful.
and they basically insist on giving you Champagne while everyone is still boarding. It's amazing but you do feel like you're rubbing it in hugely.
Or a whisky with some ice. Yay. You've made me want to be on a plane going to holiday though now
Or a Fosters.
don't think i've ever heard it included on the "list" of drinks.
they have a danish and stuff for breakfast don't they. maybe milk isn't allowed on a plane
imagine filling up a glass with them bursting over your thumb every time you open one because of the pressure, with cat_race just sat there holding his glass and going 'a little more please'
Although these days you just get a roll and that, or pastry.
They have milk for tea and coffee. Maybe they'd give you that.
when I was younger going out to visit my Dad.
it separates due to the cabin pressure
Planes are weird enough without adding alcohol into that mix.
The problem with planes is they're either in the sun and fucking ludicrously hot or it's night time and you're freezing to death. Either way you seem to dehydrate at an accelerated rate.
NOT BECAUSE ITS BAD. We've switched to rolls.
I'm going to avoid it forever.
Have you ever been to Pod? They do a nice thai red chicken curry with brown rice.
They also fooled me into thinking a yoghurt had chocolate in it but really it was cocao and tasted like earth.
but looking at a map there are several right near me.
still gonna avoid.
but then again they do do toasted bagels.
ANYWAY fair dos meow.
Just ended up having to leave the office chuckling
...they serve Singapore slings, which can prove fairly dangerous. Last time I flew with them I was in a baaad way by the time I arrived.
i get to fly *and* have a drink?? this must be what heaven feels like.
p.s. i'll just have a beer please
One time on an easyJet flight to Rome we ended up using the trolley like a bar, we were continually back and forth getting drinks. Ended up hammered.
Once had a lot of red wine on a long flight. First ever long haul flight. Couldn't believe I could just have free drinks. As many as I wanted. Felt like shit by the time we landed. Think it briefly felt good though... like a glimpse in to another world where I just sit around on transatlantic flights whilst nice ladies bring me free drinks.
I got shitfaced on sparkling Rose. It was good.
Ususally a beer, or maybe ginger ale.
I was coming back from the US last week and I asked for a coffee. The woman gave it to me with irish liquor in which was pretty good.
usually, because my dad always used to have this when we went on holidays. Although he used to say 'Scotch and American please' and then the hostess went 'pardon' and he said 'scotch and american please' and the hostess went 'sorry I'm not sure what this is' and then he said 'scotch and ginger ale' and she went 'oh yes sir.'
I just end up feeling really sick if I have alcohol in a sealed environment like a plane.
Gin and Tonic......especially important when flying to scotland and the 'locals' are drinking JD and coke or rum and coke etc.
One must keep up appeaanced
Failing that a vodka tonic! Sometimes beer......actually i'll pretty much drink anything! ;)
but only on the way back from a business appointment. Then crisps and the mile high club.
Don't think I've ever been on a flight with unlimited free drinks. Just been on a long haul flight from the states (US Air) and the only complementary drinks were soft ones - you had to pay for booze.
Don't know who you are, pal.
Alcohol on a plane makes me feel wrong. Nothing carbonated as it bloats me.
I'm fun to be around.
no only joking who actually takes the tomato juice option
i'd just ask for whichever drink i wanted
you couldnt get beer or anything. The TVs were cathode ray tube as well and it was 2012. It was sick. Almost hoyed a wobbler
don't remember if my mum bought it for me though
Clean, fresh and sparkling, it's the only thing that alleviates the feeling that you're sitting in a giant air-conditioned toilet.
