Did a lunch stop at a frog air force base. In the OM all the pilots were drinking wine and then flying. I don't think that they consider wine as alcoholic. It is just something you drink with a meal.

I think that I will adopt that attitude.
It will help me cut down my "alcohol" consumption. :))
I feel much better now. #:-S :ymdevil:

Slight thread drift. Up-country in Spain, after asking for a Ricard and a G&T, answer in the restaurant was "we don't serve alcohol here, only beer and wine".

So what do the pilots on the flight deck have with their lunch?

I've seen AF crew enjoying a bottle of beer and a sandwich in the cockpit while waiting to depart C d G. Might have been alcohol-free beer. Who knows.

My experience flying with the French Aeronavale was, with a meal came half a paper cup of vin very ordinaire in 12 hours. I'm talking the old RAF paper cup size ie not very much. The image of pissed crews is so wrong it ain't true.
