The American Airlines caterer at Dallas – Fort Worth, LSG Sky Chefs, is short on ice and blaming supply chain for the problem. Flights are getting notes, instead of ice, in their catering drawers.
The note to flight attendants suggests not only is supply chain limiting the caterer’s ability to provide ice, but also their ability to attract employees with proper grammar and spelling ability.
Due to Supply and Legestics Issues Will Not Be Able to Provid Ice For This Position. We Apologice For Any Inconvenience This May Cause.
Now, it’s surprising cold in Texas night now, though that’s going to turn around. Friday through Sunday are projected to have highs in the 80s for the Christmas holiday. In Dallas overnight lows are quite cold. Just not quite cold enough to stick ice cube trays out on the ramp overnight and then stick them in catering drawers in the morning.
Last year it was toilet paper. That made sense as – hoarding aside – consumer demand for home use skyrocketed while office demand went down to almost zero. And now cream cheese I follow, though my local craft purveyor still has plenty (along with the only decent bagels in Austin). But I didn’t have ice on my bingo card.
