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.

For an International flight with varied nationalities there should be a choice. I'd have preferred just smoked salmon or cold cuts of meat etc..
I looooooove octopus (and all other cephalopods, especially sepia) ant way it's (they're) cooked. I've even had it raw in Peru. I eat octopus at all there places I find it. Strange, I also eat tripe everywhere I find it. Mmmmmmmmm...

PS But not lamb eyes!

Peru is well known for their cuisine, personally I love the ceviche too...though I am not sure if I have tried it before with octopus.

One thing I am still trying to replicate from there is the pisco sour drink. I have come as far as using (non flavoured) tsipouro and grappa as alternatives to the (impossible to find) pisco and it is pretty close..but not quite there yet

All very tasty
Had exactly the same menu on my flight from GVA the day before you

The difference was that they served the salad together with the main (same tray). I actually had the chicken option instead of the veal- very tasty.

Still offtopic!

I did replicate pisco sour with Cretan Tsikoudia with relatively good results. Grappa isn't good for that purpose as it is often made out of more "aromatic" grapes; moreover one can't get mainland tsipouro in Crete.

I had octopus ceviche in Panama City last May. Not bad, but I prefer ceviche with fish.

I think I've seen enough of those crackers already, and I haven't flown with them yet! They look a bit cheap to me.

I don't normally eat octopus -I find it a bit tasteless and rubbery but I had the octopus starter a couple of days ago and it really was excellent. I'd recommend people to at least try it before judging although I agree there should be a choice.

Agree, their octopus is AMAZING, really loved it and pray to get it on all my A3 C flights!

Judging by the amount sent back on my flight that would certainly be a wise option. Anyway feedback already given at managment level so we shall see. Just dont blame me if they pull it totally

Does anyone here know if a 2-hour flight at 11:00 would still see a late breakfast service, or an early lunch? (and in general, at which hour the switch to lunch menu is)

I don't know the exact time when they switch and neither whether this is true for all A3 flights, but on the FCO-ATH flight that leaves at 11 am you always get lunch.

Same for MXP-ATH which leaves at 10:50. Boarding, take-off and reaching cruising altitude takes quite a while, so by the time they serve the meal it's midday (for the flights that are scheduled ~11 am).
