Our friend Jim Dodd will be flying in today from Shanghai. I can’t wait to
hear what he says about the snack. Because I was just in Shanghai at a
conference (more on that later) and here is what they serve onboard:
- 1 small round bun (like a dinner roll at Luby’s Cafeteria — Texan’s would
know about this), very soft, white, and sort of sweet
- 1 pkg of dried green olives that have been sweetened and sprinkled with
cinnamon (yes, this tastes like it sounds)
- 1 pkg of some sort of crunchy baked round balls with a hint of peanut butter
- 1 pkg of gummy mint drops with eucalyptus (this would be good if you start
coughing uncontrollably on the plane) — also pictured below in silver pkg
- 1 wet wipe
Now I’m not complaining because 1) on a US airline we don’t get anything and 2)
they ran the drink service three times on this short two hour flight. By the
way, it was a MD-80 aircraft.
I’ll let you know what Jim said!
