img_0016I do like a good beer, and I especially like not having to pay* for it.  

Question: if Air Canada can offer Harp and Sleemans in their Maple Leaf Lounges why are we stuck with sludge like Molson Canadian and Heineken in flight?


*yes, I know I am paying for it in my ticket, however I like to delude myself into imagining it is everyone else on the flight who is buying my beer so to speak…

  1. I thought that AirCan offered Heinie as well? At first I thought that the answer had to do with foregn vs domestic, but Sleemans is Canadian.

    I asked the flight attendant on board, and it turns out that the aircraft are serviced under a different contract than the lounges – thus the difference.
    To be clear – the international MLL at Pearson has Harp, Sleemans Clear, Guinness and Canadian. On board the choices were Canadian, Heineken, and one other which I can’t remember.

    cheers, Junior

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron'scruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. C.S. Lewis
