Being airborne approximately thirty minutes on an outbound evening Air Lingus flight from Dublin, the lead flight attendant nervously made the following painful announcement in her lovely Irish brogue:

"Ladies and gentlemen, I'm so very sorry, but it appears that there has been a terrible mix-up... one minute prior to take-off, by our catering service..., I don't know how this has happened, but we have 103 passengers on board, and..., unfortunately, we received only 40 dinner meals... I truly apologize for this mistake and inconvenience.”

When passengers' muttering had died down, she continued,

"Anyone who is kind enough to give up their meal so that someone else can eat, will receive free, unlimited drinks for the duration of our 4 hour flight.”

Her next announcement came about 2 hours later...

"If anyone would like to change their minds, we still have 40 dinners available."

Damn.... why don't they ever do this mix-ups on my flights? :D
(Although I did get a lucky upgrade to 1st class about 10 years ago)

And then at 37,000 feet a bar room fight broke out.
If the cockpit crew had any sense, they'd raise the cabin altitude to about 12,000 feet (drop the cabin pressure). I doubt they'd see many fights, and those that did break out would be weak and short-lived.

That's a trick I learned from a charter pilot.
