The satisfaction with the airline industry may be in a number of large studies, but a travel blogger online run-in with a reported flight attendant proves there is still much work to do.

According to the editor-at-large of The Points Guy, Zach Honig, he was on a United Airlines flight from San Francisco International Airport to Newark Liberty International Saturday afternoon when he tried to make a “old-fashioned” alcoholic beverage.

Honig claims that the supervisor told him of the flight, not about the old-fashioned, but was forced to give him the drink after the journey the writer pointed out that on the menu. When Honey asked for a second cocktail after takeoff, the crew member said that she only has an old fashion per fight.

First “premium domestic” (biz) flight since @United started with an old-Fashioned. I was looking for that one, so that is what I asked for. The Flight attendant immediately said, “no,” and when I asked why, he insisted that “we don’t have that” until I showed him the menu. ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿฅƒ pic.twitter.com/lNuho5iJrd

Asked for more, this time specifically requested the candied orange peel skewer. It is wonderful! I can certainly see why the crew wanted to keep this for themselves… pic.twitter.com/x3enN1pXXN

After openly questioning the attendant, Honey got his second drink, but saw that it doesn’t have the candied orange peel skewer the menu described. When he requested his third old fashion, Honig also asked about the orange peel, which he received.

In addition, Honey complained about the coach wearing headphones and eating a business-class salad during the flight.

In a response to a report of a United flight attendant responded to the Twitter thread by calling in the question of Honey’s etiquette in the situation and how much responsibility the supervisor has to take for his actions.

The woman has since deleted her Twitter account, but Airliners.net the screenshots.
