Turtle Soup for JetBlue Passengers

NEW YORK (OCN) — There are unconfirmed reports that New York departing JetBlue flights on Independence Day 2011 will serve turtle soup to their passengers. So far, it is possible that this is in jest due to what happened recently but other carriers have been known to serve such meals.

Did Delta serve turtle soup in int’l first class between
NYC and Frankfurt in the early 1990’s?

I am in the process of coverting several boxes of old family
video from 8mm video to DVD video. One of the tapes was
videotaped when my family were flying from Frankfurt to
New York. There was no date on the tape. The only clues
are whatever were spoken on the tape. It was a first class
cabin in a two-row 2-1-2 configuration.(767?) My little
niece was sitting in the middle single seat as others family
members tried to convince to try the “turtle soup” during
lunch service.

Prior to landing in NYC, every first class passenger were
also given a $50 Tiffany’s gift certificate. On the video,
a DL flight attendant was show handing me the certificate.
(a grandma-class FA, probably from Pan Am?)

Based on this, can anyone help me determine what month/
year, this video was shot?


So what is turtle soup? It is soup or stews made from the flesh of the turtle and this dish exists in many cultures and is viewed as a luxury or delicacy. The green turtle was commonly used for turtle soup here in the United States and over in the United Kingdom. Soup made from the snapping turtle was found mainly in the United States as well while Chinese and other East Asian cuisines use primarily soft-shelled turtles for turtle soup
