Vodka: A Legit Reason to Hit the Call Button


Delta has been so good to me lately. I’m upgraded to Comfort + so regularly that I have forgotten what it’s like to be Delta Uncomfortable. On this short flight from PHX-SLC, I got the friendly acknowledgment that I’m still a part of the club. The ticket scanner flashed red and a new boarding pass was printed. I boarded the plane and waited for us to reach cruising altitude while contemplating what cocktails I would enjoy. During takeoff, the captain came on the loudspeaker and said that drink service would be momentarily suspended. We reached cruising altitude but the drink cart never came. I began to wonder if it ever would. I tried my best to wait it out because ringing the call button is only for emergencies. In withdrawal, I decided that this was an emergency. I rang the call button and the flight attendant said only water was available. I replied, “How about vodka?” She said, “How about a double?”
