American First Class to JFK

At T-35, I headed downstairs for the short walk to Gate 42B.

Los Angeles LAX to New York JFK
American AA 172
March 19, 2018
Seat 3F

After multiple paging of passengers and 4 Concierge Key membets, boarding started at T-25 with Concierge Key, although none of them stepped forward to board.

Multiple pillow/blanket sets at each F seat.

Apparently cabin cleaning no longer includes the exposed counter tops.

Not sure if this was an FA thing or new #GoingForGreat directive, but pre departure beverages are now served in plastic.

Today's menu...

And wine list which shockingly featured two $30 bottles plus a couple of more typicAAl $10 and a $20.

And we're off...

Despite the plastic PDB issue, overall excellent service today by our NY-based First Class FA Beth, who asked whether I'd like the can.

Showtime, AA style.

Nothing says AA First Class than plastic salt and pepper shakers. Hey, at least they're not paper packets.

The sourdough roll was warm and delicious.

The Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Timbale was quite good.

The Drouhin Pouilly-Vinzelles was a meh, although its room temp probably didn't help. It actally tasted better watered down and cooled by ice from my Diet Coke. LOL.

For my main, I chose the Thai Beef Red Curry with stir fried veggies and coconut rice. Nice presentation...

... and was quite tasty despite the beef being pretty well done.

Mid flight snack from the snack basket. Panna from the Flagship Lounge.

And warm chocolate chip cookie about an hour out.

On descent to JFK on a beautiful evening.
