EK Flight Deck Snack Box

How is it possible for a sandwich to appear in the Flight Deck snack box without some wizzard announcing a two year review prior to a decision of this magnitude? The previous two year review resulted in a cardboard box and cheap yoghurt, the latter of which was quickly withdrawn, sadly without its well deserved review. Perhaps said Team is otherwise occupied reviewing EK's all widebody fleet choice.

The sandwiches are there because they had to cancel so many Doha flights and had no one to give all these lovely things too.
Savings lol
Also guess how much they spend on these boxes
9mil AED 😳😳😳😳😳😳😳.
That's the yearly approved budget. With managers making decisions on how to spend 9 million AED, it's no wonder why they don't make the money they think they can make #geniuses #savemoneybyavoidingtolls

Most of that food goes in the bin.

We should fill a box with just the things we want at HQ before going to the bus

Yes. Lufthansa did this years ago on their domestic flights - for passengers at the gate.
You just helped yourself to the fruit and sarnies you wanted before boarding and put in a branded bag
Decent food it must have been because my BMI is still perfect.

My God is that all you guys get, a snack box!!! Not even what passes for a pax meal on EK. I knew things were bad but not that bad, you poor, poor souls.
Rise up and demand chicken or beef! its your right.

Give me beef, mezze, pita, and a salad and I'm happy.
