For those who got the email, are your reservations still there when you check online?

Both of mine are still on the Accor website, but not on the Angsana website. I couldn't pull them up on the Angsana website when I tried yesterday before I got the email, either.

You flew ELAL F?  ;)
Been told by many here don't ever fly ELAL unless I want some more PC.  :)
I just found a new supply of forks!

I think many here are at a big disadvantage rating F service. Wouldn't one of the major factors be food?

The major factors are:

-Hard product
-Service
-Hard Product bonus perks like a shower
-Food
-Booze
-Lounges

Random thoughts:
-US airlines F is dead due to poor service.
-The ME3 don't have consistently good service, though I found EK to be better than the rest. Service is a huge part of the F experience and bad service will kill the whole thing.
-Asian airlines like JL, NH, and SQ have out of this world service. CX service can be more robotic and less warm than the rest of the Asia carriers.
-SQ suites are a step above the rest for privacy and the new suites look amazing.
-CX has by far the most comfortable bed, bedding, and seat.
-EY's seat and bed are spacious, but not particularly comfortable. Seat recline is also poor.
-EYs shower room is tiny and dingy. Its' not nearly as enjoyable as the EK shower spa which is much larger and feels more like a Park Hyatt than a Holiday Inn.
-You won't find food and champagne/wine reviews here, so look to FT if that's important.
-Lounges like LH FCT are nice to try out, but in the end of the day I can lounge at my home as well. It's not what makes or breaks the product.

Pretend to Jewish so they'll warm up your own food for free :D

Seriously though, the food and drink prices there are obscene.

The airline? Sure, they have a long fishing rod to pick a fresh one out of the ocean below.

You know the lingo by now, I'm sure you'll do a fine job.
The only problem will be when they see the lobster when you open the double wrapped packages.
