Crew Meals

Flight Attendant Monthly Crew Meal Schedules is located on Wings under the heading
Home > Workgroups > Flight Service > Bidding

On Friday, September 19, 2014 Flight Service issued the following:

Question: What can I do when I don’t receive a scheduled crew meal?

Answer: Should you not receive a meal, you should contact Flight Service Daily Operations at 888-222-4737 (available 24 hours a day). They will take the key information such as date, flight number, city pair and crew member information. This team will then coordinate with the local catering department to arrange a meal at the scheduled or a downline station.

In a case where you are not provided with a scheduled crew meal and Flight Service is not able to arrange one, you are permitted to secure food from an alternative food provider (airport vendor) and submit along with a receipt for actual reasonable expenses. You can also report missing crew meals through askinflight or via the FACE reports on the HHD. These venues will not provide the opportunity to correct the immediate situation but will allow you to document the issue.
