Just got off flight #007 from YVR-HKG after a two hour delay and I have to give credit to the Company for revamping there meals in the J Class cabin. The quality of the meals were better and the selections as well. The snack basket remains the same and it needs some work still.

A Selection of warm fresh Breads with Butter

No, I believe the Croque Monsieur is still offered as an anytime snack similar to the dim sum.

No but had no camera on me since it's a short trip and had amazingly a lot of energy after travelling almost 20 hours from YUL!^

Do you happen to know which flights have a mid-flight snack available?

I know the Canada-Asia flights do, but how about YYZ-EZE or the longer TATL flights like YVR-LHR or YYZ-TLV?

No they use to have the Snack Basket on YYZ-GRU and YYZ-SCL-EZE and also on YYZ-TLV but took this away as of 3.5 years ago. YYZ-TLV has short list of hot/cold snacks though.
I wish they would bring it back along with the smoothie for breakfast which also dissappeared at around the same time.

Only Asia flights and the Syd flights and YVR/YYC to Europe have the snack baskets.

new menu is good

I had the roasted chicken and then the lasagna yesterday yvr -pvg, both very good. I was pleasantly surprised by the smoked salmon appetizer, great presentation and very tasty.
I have been eagerly waiting for the pecan pie after reading EZESE's comments, and yes it is very good (no ice-cream here either), but I was stuffed and couldn't eat it all! That's a lot of food for lunch.
No need for a snack for me.
I managed to break 9A on this flight, so I hope they fix it quick. The foot rest section essentially fell off...
Looking forward to the trip back (as long as an upgrade comes through, that is)

Toronto - Asia, YVR/HKG, YVR/SYD have the long list of mid flight snacks (hot/cold); other YVR/Asia and YYZ/TLV have a shorter list of mid flight snacks (hot/cold); YVR/Europe and YYC/Europe have snack basket.

I took AC7 last week and that looks all the same. Steak wasn't bad, but not great either. If only I didn't eat the smoked salmon..

Just got off AC18, but instead of flying on the 13th as I was supposed to I had to make a last-minute change to fly today. All they could get me was a middle seat in Y... (Not only middle, but an E seat ) At least I made it back to Canada... nice to be home for the first time in a month.

Welcome home even if it was in a middle E seat!
