AIRLINE REUSES PLASTIC CUTLERY
If you’re flying Qantas Airways anytime soon, we have some good news: The air carrier still serves in-flight meals. The bad news: They’ll be serving up used plastic cutlery with the plane food. According to a story
in the UK newspaper Daily Telegraph, Australia’s largest international airline admitted to reusing its plastic forks, spoons, and knives “multiple times” before throwing them away. In its defense, the airline said that the plastic serveware was made of sturdier stuff than your usual disposable tableware, and subject to a strict cleaning process. Oh, and if as if you need another reason to pony up cash for a premium seat: Those in business and first class get metal with their meals. Or you could always pay for the cheap seats and bring your own fork.
