If I wanted to visit a secluded island with nothing to do except lounge around all day, I can think of much cheaper options than Richies playground.

There’s always Riker’s Island I guess.

“I will have a coffee, please. Hold the coffee.” == free biscotti snack?

Hats off to “Air New Zealand”. I hope edible coffee cups will be successful.

Edible cups on an Airline? Seriously bad idea.

I don’t want to eat a cup that someone has handled even gloved (are FA they going to wear latex gloves during meals and bev service)?

Yes I know they normally give you a napkin – but people change kids nappies on those tray backs. Planes are more like flying petri dishes.

I think compostable cups are fine and also better for environment than plastic for environment.

My only concern would be the handling you mention — all food you otherwise receive is full pre-wrapped and only you touch it. Not sure how they can avoid touching the “cup”. Aside from that it seems no different than any other food (notice the picture shows it in a bowl)

I didn’t read that article, I read a different source the other day – that actually looks more like something that would be served in a premium cabin rather than coach –

it does change my perception a little seeing the biscotti image. Not a huge a biscotti fan – now a strufalewaffle cone with some Vanilla ice cream sounds yummy.

Since you aren’t required to eat those cups, just consider them compostable and there’s no problem?

Passengers will be required to eat the cups.

I did not read the article so I don’t have more details to go on that what’s been said here, but I don’t know, it doesn’t seem all that different to me than any vegetable or fruit where you eat its skin. I’m sure plenty of people have handled those things prior to my eating them, and I have (almost) no qualms about doing so without wiping them down or washing them beforehand. I haven’t ever gotten sick, and I’m not dead.

I don’t know anything about New Zealand, but in the the United States:

(1) Paper cups are made from trees planted specifically for manufacturing purposes. Less demand = fewer trees planted = fewer forestry jobs.

(2) The country as a whole has many future years of landfill capacity based on existing supply. Regional future capacity issues can be addressed by building new, modern landfills.
