We acknowledge engine failures, hydraulic problems, and the like can be minor, everyday occurrences that do not require mention. But an exception should be made to last Saturday’s jetBlue flight 757 from New York JFK to Aruba.

The A320 experienced a bird strike and safely returned to Kennedy, where passenger comments were, surprisingly, not of the scare mongering kind but rather reflections on today’s in-flight service.

As passenger Gina Vicinanza said: “Suddenly the plane smelled like chicken…I thought, ‘Wow! They have hot food on this plane.’”
