Dinner

As expected, it was a choice between the Protein Plate and a "Chicken Bacon" sandwich and chips. I had the sandwich which was better than expected. Later in the flight, the FA came by with the snack basket. Overall, it was a bit disappointing for a 3 hours flight. It reminded of the BoB menu in coach, rather then something special for F. It was definitely a step down from their previous F meal service on this route.

Lunch

The meal service was a choice between the Protein Plate and a Roast Beef and Cheese sandwich with chips. For a 3:30pm flight, this snack was sufficient. I had the protein plate, which could have used a package of crackers along with the pita. The hummus was actual good. Later in the flight, the FA came around with the snack basket.

Overall thoughts: Service was so-so on the outbound, much better on the return. The meal service was fine for a light snack service or a Bay Area-SEA flight, which was fine mid-afternoon but not for "Dinner". Dinner should have another component to the meal, maybe an enhanced dessert (such as a hot baked cookie like AA) for 3 hour flights.
