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.
I believe the trade off is that on the transcons you get that very nice gloss menu instead of a real meal.
