I, too, feel the removal of food service to Hawaii is unfair. JFK-LAX is 2475 miles with a meal, while LAX-HNL is 2556 miles, yet no meal service.

I am traveling to from JFK-LIH in February with my wife and three young children. We are
overnighting in LAX, and taking the 9:05 am flight to HNL, then on to Kauai. Since we'll have to check in at LAX around 7:30 in the morning, it doesn't give us a lot of time to seek out food options for the flight to Hawaii. And if I remember correctly, there are no supermarkets at LAX. Plus,I'm not happy about the idea of paying three times the going rate for a croissant at Au Bon Pain.

I could see eliminating coach meal service domestically to cut costs, but not to
Hawaii. This makes no sense.

Maybe AA wants to emulate JetBlue. But on those flights, at least you get satellite TV.
