Cool! Thanks. That works.
Might as well call them leftovers. I wonder if Aramark has to spray them with something to keep the "fresh" selections from looking stale and wilted days later.
Most flights are short enough to wait for a drink when you land, longer flights can often be booked on airlines with free liquor, and nearly every airport I've visited had a bar of some sort. On the other hand Amtrak is a long and drawn out affair that can last multiple days each way and most train stations haven't had a functioning bar in decades. $8 for a single shot of low grade liquor is a turnoff to me. Either stock better brands or reduce the price to something easier to stomach.Cocktails have gone up to $8.00; right in line with the airlines I fly.
If you book a roomette or bedroom then you're paying first class airfare prices where the airline would be providing these drinks at no additional cost, even if you were flying a no-frills operation such as UA, DL, or AA.However, Amtrak does allow you to bring your own liquors, wines and beer. So give them some credit there. Not likely to find that on United, Delta or American.

<Boo hoo> What about us folks that don't drink? <sniff>If you book a roomette or bedroom then you're paying first class airfare prices where the airline would be providing these drinks at no additional cost, even if you were flying a no-frills operation such as UA, DL, or AA.
Wasn't the plan to return the dining car to the Star as of the first of the year (January 2016)?BTW - We just booked two Roomettes in April and they mentioned that the dinning car is back. I hope that is indeed correct. The rate was a bit higher, than the current roomette rates without the diner. I think it was about $64 difference.
