I totally agree on the food waste aspect of no trays. HAL still has trays and I see people with huge tray loads of food, that I know darn well they are never going to eat. If you dont have a tray, you may think twice about getting that extra something that you may or may not even eat. When was the last time you seen a tray at an upscale land based buffet? And I'm not talking about Old Country Buffet or Golden Corral.
Its really quite simple to go back for what ever else you want to eat. I dont see it as much of a problem. But hey, this is the gripe forum, so gripe away. 8)
As a child, a library card takes you to exotic, faraway places. When you're grown up, a credit card does it.
