Re: Irish 5/19: Summer is a comin' in!

Running out of BOB is silly and shows a lack of professionalism. By now EI should know route requirements and stock accordingly. It is not a case of a lack of space! They probably pack all trolleys with the same stock no matter the route!
And Aer Space is going to add to the problem

Re: Russia's Utair in trouble

I have rarely, if ever, been delayed on an Aeroflot flight.
