I am happy to report (from NYC incidentally!) that "the Americans" are becoming more reasonable again! You are now allowed to use full metal cutlery again in the airplane, even for knifes! It just wouldn't do to have to cut a nice filet steak with a plastic excuse of a knife when you have a nice 1997 Cantenac Brown and immaculate linen 12000 meters above sea level ... yes, you guessed right: I did enjoy my flight! But no, wait, there was one glitch! They stopped serving Martini!! They can't do that, I'll have to complain!
