Back to LAX...

Honolulu HNL to Los Angeles LAX
American AA 284
3:40p-11:29p (sked)
3:35p-10:55p (actual)

Seat 1C (moved from Seat 3A)

I had originally selected the same 3A as my inbound, but I was concerned that AA could repair the collapsing tray table issue. I didn't want some overzealous AA employee taking 3AC out of service for the return. So on the taxi in, I changed seat assignment to the only unassigned seat... 1C, the worst seat in then cabin. Actually, not sure it even qualifies as in the cabin. More like "in the galley." Yeah, that's really pleasant. Fortunately, I know travel with a baseball cap to block out the harsh overhead lighting.

And then there was our crew tonight. I've seen senior FAs before, but this duo took the prize. When they talk about their great grandkids, you know they're old. Yikes. And with enough seniority to only work LAX-HNL.

Decades of service and you'd think someone along the way might have thought... "you know why don't I draw the curtain to hide the crap going on in galley" from the customers. LOL. Ya right.

Showtime, AA style.

OK, the meal actually looks good,

Absolutely, no idea what this was. Olive, ginger and maybe pork? Whatever it was, it was pretty tasty.

Small salad with pineapple dressing was nice.

For my main, I had pre-ordered the braised short ribs...


...which we very good.

Yeah, that makes a really nice impression.

We arrived 30 minutes early at Terminal 4, so I had a hike to the T5/6 garage since the T4 garage was full this morning.
