The one that always miffs me is ORD-LAX in the early afternoons. It says "snack" for F meals but I always remember these flights offering fairly substantive meals even during snack hours in the afternoon.

I think "lunch" is a term that is used very loosely by AA with respect to transcons. I took one a couple months ago from SFO-BOS that left around 1pm that was definitely categorized as a "lunch" flight. Lunch was a salad with either a soggy sandwich that you might get in your lunch box in fourth grade, or a plate of cold cuts. I suppose what they served could technically be called "lunch" but it was certainly not the lunch you would expect on a first class transcon.

I don't know why, but of late, I've found the transcon lunch meals, and sometimes even the dinner meals, to be less appetizing than what you get SFO-DFW, or SFO-ORD for lunch/dinner.
