In J:
CDG->SIN had croque monsieur.
SIN->CDG had "some warm snacks" that I'm still waiting for

For both legs, you could get instant noodles too.

In Y:
Cookies, candies, and cheese sandwiches

Just a heads up , I had the shrimp Tartare on one of my flights from CDG to YYZ. back in November. I suspect that was the culprit that made me nauseous the WHOLE flight and even when we landed. The nausea subsided around 4 hours after landing...

On what planet does anyone think raw shrimp is good airplane food? Even cooked fish can be problematic.

The alternatives such as LX, and certainly LH, AC, and the US carriers are a far cry from AF gastronomically.
I would agree. I flew business class on OS, KLM, AF, BA, SN and LH TATL last year. I liked AF food the best, though I enjoyed the SN beer menu for a daytime flight. BAs Do&Co catering is underrated. The US airlines on AA and DL are at best edible. UA is literally inedible - not an exaggeration, just look at their Polaris onboard dining thread.

Menu for BOS-CDG on the 19th

Appetizer: Maine lobster and tangy fennel salad
Red meat option: Pot-au-feu style braised beef
White meat option: Chicken supreme, chorizo and Espelette pepper emulsion, potato puree with garlic and bell pepper confit
Seafood option: "Souvenir from Camargue" (cod, red rice, beurre blanc sauce, turnips)
Vegetarian option: Orecchiette pasta with creamy butternut squash and zucchini

Leaning beef for myself. May order a CHML for my 7 yo traveling with us (any datapoints on what that will typically entail)... are there typically enough extra meals catered to allow him to decide on the plane that he'd rather have a regular meal?

Same menu on my upcoming SEA-CDG flight. I haven't seen those posted here yet. I was also wondering the same for the child's meal. I suppose whichever one of us gets it first can post about it

They had the same menu ex-US last summer (see posts 68 - 88 or so in this thread) mixed reports of the cod ex-BOS, here was the one I got which was not particularly good, should have gone with the beef or chicken instead:

CDG-BOS on the 23rd is this menu for the lunch (expecting the standard egg salad on brioche sandwich as the pre-landing snack)

i ordered CHML for my 3 and 5 years old kids on ORY RUN in J. A disaster. Grated carrots as starter, plain white rice with a few slices of carrot and zucchini, zero protein, plates on J plate but that could have been a vegan+kosher+muslim+hindu+glutenfree Y meal, or something that is served in school canteens to punish misbehaving kids. And no spare usual J meals available although I could see a couple of trays left, antipathic chief purser trying to bu11$hit me (crazy puritan censorship by FT!). For the way back, I preorder regular business meals for them, and made sure at check in and boarding that there would be no child meal for the kids. That made me less likely to buy 4 J tickets on AF for a family trip in the future.

Have you travelled yet? We are looking at this same menu for me and my son, JFK-CDG next week. Curious what the children's meal is so my son can decide. He's 10 so sort of in between wanting a real adult meal and a kids meal.

I took my daughter (11) on CDG-LAX in J and she took the beef option. She loved it.
Usually that is the most safe option with potatoes and regular vegetables as a side.
I believe that gives more value than a kids meal. As a back up there are always croque monsieurs and cup noodles available, plus often a spare meal.

CDG-SIN forgot to take a picture of the menu🙈

meal was really good. A blessing compared to my CDG-LAX flight in December 22.


Amuse Bouche with beetroot and cream cheese plus a package of the regular cheese snacks.

Delicious shrimp with ginger and pea mousse

Cod steak with caramelized fennel and creamy koriander sauce. Cooked to perfection.

The traditional pastry trio

Delicious salmon muffin and warm pastries. Excellent.

No photos, but the pot-au-feu style braised beef ex-BOS last night was a small portion but delicious.

CHML starter was a couple of sandwiches and the main was chicken, mashed potatoes, and broccoli.

Another set of pictures of the starters + beef cheek.

"Just because everything looks better in blue atmospheric lighting"

I can confirm it was a delicious beef cheek, despite being a bit...blue.
