Just curious... UAL, AA, Spirit, UPS, other carriers, etc... does your company provide a holiday meal (i.e., pay for one at the hotel, a stipend, etc.)?

AA does a very good job of putting on a good spread for those working over the holiday. No one is working the holiday this year though!! ;)

Spirit usually has some sort of food/meal dropped off at bases on a holiday. Great for those working through a base, most pilots wonít see any. But thatís fine, Iíll skip the food poisoning from turkey left at room temp, in a break room, for hours.

SWA has all overnight hotels provide a meal on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day. It is hotel dependent but I have had some spectacular feasts working the holidays.

All of our layover hotels offered Holiday meals. Sometimes the machine required exact change, but the front desk would usually break a $5 bill.....:D

The best "holiday meal" that was provided by a hotel on layover was in Amsterdam where the hotel held a free outside "cookout" with adult beverages and all the BBQ fixings they could find on the internet for free on the 4th of July!

I got a leftover dinner roll sometime around midnight in a crew room last Christmas.

At K4, we can charge up to $50 on our company credit card for wherever we wanna eat, up to 30 days after the holiday. As long as we donít buy booze or gift cards with it.

Don't know if it's the case anymore with the AS merger, but VX used to cater inflight holiday (eg, Turkey) meals for crews flying on Thanksgiving and I think something similar for Christmas as well.
