The short haul J sandwich

Maybe I've missed a post about it, and maybe it's already there for a while and only served at certain hours. But I had a huge and very tasty club sandwich next to the usual salad box.

Presumably the same one they serve for lunch on short flights like to CPH. There is usually a choice of two, in which case I would recommend the one with Old Amsterdam cheese. If the forget to load enough dinners, you may also be offered a sandwich for dinner.

I was offered both of these sandwiches on an early afternoon flight. I had the club which tasted good and was very filling. I will try the cheese on the way back if I get the choice. Well done KLM

On Cityhopper flights I believe the sandwich is given to the whole plane (that has been my experience at least).

Is that new? My C trips on cityhopper date a bit now but definitely got the cold tray in all of mine (typically the very same club sandwich or Old Amsterdam cheese sandwich choice mentioned above. A bit of variety wouldn't be bad here) including to LHR on a similar 'aircraft change' case and NCE which is much longer. Certainly never received the Y sandwiches in C before although some people have queried the service on super-short flights such as DUS.

That's definitely not a mainline EB sandwich, which begs the question why KLC can't serve those. Not having a hot galley is obiviously not a good enough excuse.

Last trip I did (SVG-AMS, AMS-LBA) I had the same sandwich choices offered on both legs. I'm pretty sure SVG-AMS is mainline, AMS-LBA is cityhopper.

The veggie club one is huge, tho they ran out of those on the second flight by the time they got to me.

It's a few months ago since I last had one of those sandwiches, but I have never seen them wrapped in plastic before.

On a lunchtime KLC flight today, the choice was veal or cheese. That's to say, the first five pax got a choice, the sixth and I got cheese. Nut and raisin flute with mature Beemster cheese, according to the menu. Came with a mixed salad with yellow tomatoes (I counted one. So much for the plural) and a miniscule "raspberry quark" dessert. The sandwiches were not wrapped in plastic.

Does it mean you ended up being upgraded after all (in which case, ) or was that an entirely different flight from the one you were mentioning in the other thread? Hope the former and if so hope you enjoyed!

Yep, same flight and yes, upgraded at the gate. The sandwich was fine.

No huge sandwich in J on AMS-CDG this time. Yeah I anticipated it (had no time at the airport). There seems to be some inconstancy?
