    Reminds me of the cafe attendant on the CZ a couple years ago who kept on reminding passengers over the PA to "come on down to the lounge car" and buy his "infamous" Bloody Marys. He also did some drink trivia about the Big Lebowski over the PA, which segued into a reminder to buy that drink from him.

    Nanette and Harald probably the two PPC attendants your thinking of. Regardless it does show what could be done with one employee.

    You’re welcome to become one.

    The short version is “not good”.

    came in on the CL this afternoon from Chicago and totally agree. We were 3 hours late into DC and I was so hungry / devoid of protein by the time we got there that I inhaled two meals' worth of cheese as fast as I humanly could to avoid passing out. I don't particularly like eating sugar in the mornings but there were no other options I was aware of...

    The veg dinner was fine, though. The wrap had lots of fresh veggies and hummus and there was a quinoa/edamame salad too. Airplane-like but totally serviceable and I went to sleep content.

    How was the "vegan dessert bar"?

    Thanks. I'm a pescatarian (can eat fish but no meat), and I'm pretty annoyed that the new menu has literally one option I can eat. It's especially frustrating that I can't even choose my dessert, considering the salted caramel cheesecake sounds a hell of a lot better than that dessert bar.

    Maybe they should get their vegan dessert from Eureka Compass Vegan Food (here in St. Paul!) I had a vegan chocolate-chip cookie, fresh out of the oven, along with some cool brew coffee. It was delightful.
