Ok, It's been less that a week since the PAYD system went live in MW. I swore to myself I would give it at least a couple of weeks before making any rash judgments but I finally caved today.[marq=down] Whilst eating my (core) defrosted rubber baguette with cheese I decided to refresh my pallete with a second (not a 102nd) glass of orange 'squash' from the 8 million litre cooler/dispenser. I was pounced upon and forced to cough up 15p.[/marq] I am not permanently stationed at MW so I have a book of free core meal chits. Now my gripe is that whilst my parent unit is not on PAYD I am still paying for food under the old system which entitles me to as much crap orange as I can force down my throat. Why then, should I be punished. The rant doesn't stop there either. Gravy cant be provided to lubricate dry pies because it's not budgeted for, slices of bread are 15p a round and you cant have a pot of tea on your table unless the table is full.[marq=down] Now I understand there will be teething problems, and I have made my feelings clear in the appropriate comment books, but I thought the idea of PAYD was that there would be NO, and I say again, NO drop in standard if one was to opt for the core choice.[marq=down] I pass this one to the floor.................[/marq] PS. I know this is a very tenuous link to the aviation forum.. but it is about MW after all.
