Coffee in a Thermos and security

Post by FighterPilot » Mon Aug 05, 2019 5:45 pm

Getting really sick of the on board coffee and I'm looking at taking my own Thermos to bring my own coffee with me. I have a 1.9L Stanley, so it's a little on the large side and completely metal. Anyone have any problems with security, specifically internationally?

In Canada and in most countries, no problem working/dhing/commuting in uniform.

In the UK, it's a problem.

Interesting idea but unfortunately you'd still be using airplane hot water :vom:

Interesting, I may give that a try. For $25-30 its not a bad option. Like YYCFlyGuy said you'd still be using the aircraft water, but the option of having your own fresh ground beans might mitigate that. Each FIN seems to be different, some the on board coffee/water seems OK, others it's completely undrinkable.

Duly noted. Since you cockpit flight crews mentioned yer company coffee I have to say as a passenger noticed over the past few years AC coffee is putrid at times. Tastes and smell burnt like it has been recycled for a great number of hours. As the sign says in the aft lavatory on yer B767ER “ only need to flush once it’s a short distance to the galley” :wink: :wink:
