Please post all images of A3's food and beverage offerings in both Economy and Business Class, both domestic and international routes.

A posting hint:
The maximum image resolution that FT can cope with is 800 x 600. Posting images beyond this limit pushes them beyond the page margins, making the visual appearance of the thread disjointed and very difficult for everyone to read.

There are on-line tools for most image storage sites which provide alternative links for reduced sized images - please use these prior to posting to reduce work in having to request users edit their posts. Thanks.

Unfortunately I know nothing about wine, but I did remember to take some pictures of the article - and tried some as well. The theme this time is the Peloponnisos, which I was particularly interested in as that's where I am living



The articles about the individual wines can be found here:
Mantineia
Sideritis
Aras
Cabernet Sauvignon

I tried the Sideritis white with the chicken dish and it was great. It's from the Axaia region (Between Patras and Kalavrita) which is beautiful and very mountainous. Aside from wine they also have the best honey - with various flavours, from Pine to specific herbs to Eucalyptus.

On paper the Cabernet Sauvignon sounded best to me for the veal dish, but I personally did not like it as much as others that I have tried before. A little too 'strong' if that is a way to describe a wine - unfortunately its the best I can come up with At the same time it was very mellow though, and not acidic at all. This was also (by far) the most popular wine - at least three bottles were emptied during this flight.

Agreed; I usually try to avoid those flights but I couldn't help it on this trip, unfortunately.

True sometimes you just cant avoid it. I just flew EK in J on two breakfast flights and have to say it actually was quite good but I still prefer lunch/dinner flights.

One of the things I like about East Asian airlines (SQ, OZ, and CA for example) is that they tend to have a non-western offer on breakfast flights, which tends to be less breakfasty and more to my personal taste.

Although, I recently flew a morning ATH-TXL in Y and with the seafood meal, got an interesting seafood omelette in a tomato sauce (Not ketchup). The omelette wasn't particularly delicious, but the addition of the non-identifiable seafood made it worthwhile.
Btw, just have to mention, I love that A3 offers a seafood meal option. And I would say that they usually do a pretty good job at it.

all the special meals (except the kosher one :P) are much better than the normal Y meal
Seafood is usually great (usually something looking like cod but I had salmon once), and halal meal is also very good (kebabs with tomato sauce and rice)

Looks nice What was in the salad besides dolmades and chickpeas?

Awesome as well for them to serve youvetsi, not so common outside of Greece (and perhaps Italy where its known as Orzo) What's next, hilopites?

I believe kritharaki is the pasta itself, while youvetsi is the name of the whole dish right?
