Let's see....48 hours after the Pilot union gets its ass handed to it by an arbitrator.

Gee, I wonder....

Air Canada- we're not happy until you're not happy

How do you screw up a foil packet with 8 smokehouse flavored almonds in it?
 
2012-08-01 12:26:57 AM  
Atleast they got a sandwich
 
2012-08-01 12:27:11 AM  
It sounds more like tampering than anything else. How likely are you to find sewing needles in a "kitchen" that puts out airline food?
 
2012-08-01 12:27:56 AM  
Great. Now everybody is going to want one.

First Delta stops the "free needles with sammiches" program, now Air Canada's following suit? What's next, airlines? Take away the seats and make all airline passengers into straphangers?

/stupid recession

As someone who is currently sitting in the Toronto Airport for the last 6 hours, and the next 6 hours, because Air Canada is completely incapable of handling the rescheduling of flights and general well-being of their customers when something like a weather delay pops up, all I have to contribute to this conversation is that they can DIAF and EABOD.

Wait, Air Canada will give you an actual sandwich on a domestic flight?

Quick! Someone pay Celine Dion millions of dollars so her creepy nauseating husband can record a gloopy pop song for Air Canada!

"Air Canada spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick said the airline contacted the catering company which had prepared the meal immediately after the discovery. He said a passenger had reported finding the object."

"Pat, Id like to buy a comma."

Guess "english" is optional in Canadia as well.

Probably easier than trying to find one in a haystack.

You used your phone on the airplane! YOU TERRORIST! Don't you know you could have reverese blue-tooth hacked the Plane's Fly By Wire system, and flew into the ground! It would be like 9/11 times 2012!

DONT LAUGH AT ME, IT'S THE PLOT FOR THE NEXT DIE HARD MOVIE: DIE HARD 7, DIE HARDEST!

I know this is Fark and all, and people like to make dramatic headlines, but there's no possible way for the food on an Air Canada flight to get worse. There's also no possible way for Air Canada flight attendants to get older or more bitter and self-entitled. It's the very definition of divide by zero.
 
2012-08-01 12:42:08 AM  
Since this was a domestic flight, I don't think it was actually "Air Canada" food... they only resell stuff from local vendors at each airport they take off from.

Personally, I don't buy anything but alcohol on Air Canada... I bring my own food usually. I'm sure Air Canada will find some excuse to make the Government outlaw this practice to protect their crappy service monopoly.

So, what you're sayin' is, I shouldn't take off to the Great White North? That it is, in fact, not a beauty way to go?

You can take off TO the Great White North... you just shouldn't take off FROM the Great White North...

Clearly you haven't flown United lately. Makes Air Canada look like Cathay Pacific first class by comparison.

Actually, you might want to save that bowl of dicks, it would probably be better than the airline food.
And you can sell it to the other passengers for a profit!

It's not a security measure as stated in the article...it's a hygene measure..

In Cathay Pacific first class right now, getting a kick out of this.
And boy, do I have space to kick.

It starts with a slight fever and dryness of the throat. When the virus penetrates the red blood cells, the victim becomes dizzy, begins to experience an itchy rash, then the poison goes to work on the central nervous system, severe muscle spasms followed by the inevitable drooling...At this point, the entire digestive system collapses accompanied by uncontrollable flatulence.

Is that scotch and a bag of peanuts?
 
2012-08-01 01:42:10 AM  
With Air Canada you just have to count yourself lucky that you weren't put on standby and that your flight actually was allowed make it to the runway and take off...and only the very wealthy can afford AC sandwiches...in coach you don't even get peanuts with a needle unless you have a valid credit card.

You should have had the Lasagne! ;-)
A hospital? What is it Doctor?

Oh great, I prepaid for a sandwich when I booked my ticket home from the family vacation I'm on at the moment.

I guess I'll have to inspect my lunch before I chow down.

As long as I'm not sandwiched between two giant land-whales like I was on one flight, I don't really mind. Stabby-sandwiches are actually preferrable to being squashed by sweaty ginormous blobs of human skin and fat tissue.
 
2012-08-01 01:49:58 AM  
If you have ever eaten on an Air Canada flight you know that having needles in would in all likelihood improve the flavour, as the blood would add a bit of salt, kind of like soy sauce.

Certainly it would be more convenient if they could just give bloody soy sauce to you in small packets, but at least they're making an effort.

On a 6 and 1/2 hour trip to Hawaii, Air Canada graciously offered us one-half of one can of Coke as a refreshment. The movie was Bruce Almighty.

Never again.

Don't forget fatter. The average weight of an Air Canada Sky Waitress is well north of 200 pounds. You can't fall asleep on an AC flight in an aisle seat, as you'll be bumped awake by one of them as they ooze their surly bulk down the too narrow for their mass aisle.

I wonder how many millions of dollars a year Air Canada has to spend on extra fuel to transport fat around the Country.

You wish. That's ginger ale and, uh...something worse than peanuts. Boiled peanuts, maybe.

How can something which is infinitely better than plain peanuts be worse than plain peanuts? Does not compute.

Would I be required to share my straphanger with an obese person? And wouldn't there be some kind of ban on children being strapped in? Sign me up! Well, unless you could strap the kids in really tight and let me laugh at them. It would be worth the noise.
