It’s a good thing you don’t rely on TPOL for a CSI investigation of every aspect of every flight. I take photos of what I consider to be interesting and try to present a flight review that isn’t like every other blog. Having said that, I do think it is important to document what meals an airline serves onboard. Apart from the type of champagne and comfort of the sleeping arrangements, there’s nothing more important than food.
So why did I not take photos of the food for my Iberia flight from MAD-TLV? The answer is simple: I chose sleep over chicken, a less than desirable dining choice. And despite failing as a blogger, I have no regrets in doing so. Unlike my SAA DAR-JNB: I Don’t Remember It which received so many hateful comments, I managed to take a few photos to capture the identical cabin I had just flown from SJU-MAD.
Here they are for your viewing pleasure:
Once again I was in the front row, but unlike the SJU-MAD flight, I was not bothered by the bright lights.
Unlike the aforementioned flight, this time I received an amenities kit which included shades.
I tried to stay awake but wasn’t motivated for rocket salad stuffed chicken fillet.
Overcome with blogger guilt, I woke up and scrambled to find a flight attendant before we made our descent. I ordered the only snack available: a tuna wrap. Judging by the photo, I should have continued to zzz.
I do not regret booking a business class flight from MAD-TLV using Iberia Avios instead of flying coach or flying Pegasus through Turkey (see Points or Cash? Business or Coach? My Flight from Madrid to Tel Aviv). I also don’t regret not staying awake for the pollo, but ultimately it’s my readers who will determine my culpability.
What do you think? Does TPOL have a responsibility to stay awake for the damn chicken? Comment below.
