Lunch
Grilled Beef Filet or Cheese Ravioli

PDB: POG mimosa
Curried ginger carrot soup was excellent, as was the grilled asparagus. Beef was more medium-well but edible with the red wine sauce. Better execution by Maui catering than HNL

Really well executed top to bottom and continuing Alaska's trend of good catering. Would've loved more of the cilantro lime crema.

Nice!

Wow....that steak with potatoes and asparagus looks like something I would actually order at a restaurant....no swiss chard, polenta, or weird tasting rice. After many, many AS flights in F, I've still never managed to be on a flight that served steak....someday.....

3/4 PHX-SEA 1235p departure: turkey sandwich or protein plate. I told the FA to give me whatever she had left and ended up with the protein plate.
3/4 SEA-YYC 335p departure: snack basket and a biscoff. Like the Hawaii flights, the bananas have to be eaten on the plane.
3/5 YYC-SEA 650p departure: snack basket and a biscoff. Same FA as the day before. She was attentive and funny.

Good to see Maui catering serving edible food now. Every time Iíve taken AS out of Maui, itís looked (or tasted) like someone left a cart in the sun for several days. Iíve begun stopping at Whole Foods or some places in Kihei to get lunch/dinner. If anyone is wondering, you can take prepared foods through the ag inspection.

Today on 764 (PDX-DCA) it was the Braised Top Blade w/ Fennel or the Vegetarian Bibimbap. Sadly, catering failed to load the bibimbap fresh veggies or sauce. (They loaded the sides and sauce for the cod dish instead.) FA very apologetic - but definitely a pretty bland dish without the chili sauce.

DAL-SFO F Breakfast


Granola with dried fruit and Alaska roll which they should start selling as branded item in grocery stores. Pretty good setup for Skywest flight.

Date: March 6
Route: MCO-SEA
Flight Number: AS 9
Departure time: 7:20 AM
Menu: Yes
Meal description (if given) Breakfast

Preordered the pulled pork bowl and quite enjoyed it. Decent food and beverage experience overall. For the first time ever, I experienced the mythical offer of a predeparture beverage on AS - coffee only, but better than a sharp poke in the eye. An offer of juice and/or a mimosa would definitely be a nice bonus on a flight this long.

The meal service dragged on weirdly long with the two courses - not a huge problem given the flight duration but it was starting to be noticeable by the time the main entree came out, and it was fully two hours after departure by the time everything was all said and done. I might choose the single tray option that was advertised on the menu card next time.

But overall the food was fabulous: the cinnamon apples were a perfect starter, and while the turmeric spiced smoothie had a curious flavor profile, I didnít dislike it. I think my only request for the future would be to serve the sour cream in a ramekin on the side so it could be easily skipped for folks who didnít want it on the dish

Compared to a year ago, ASís catering is like a completely different airline. Iíve always been a harsh critic, derisively referring to AS F as ďpotsticker classĒ for years, but theyíve definitely turned over a new leaf and I like it. Still a long way to go in refinement of inflight service from the cabin crew and amenities provided (come on, folks, pillows for red eye flights!) but this is a great start.

It would seem the Flight Attendants have some say in how the meal is presented. Just a couple days ago the sour cream was on the side and the pico was on the dish.

I flew that same flight just two days before you and we had a choice of OJ, Mimosa, coffee, or champagne for our PDB.

AS 2867 - LAX-PAE 7:55PM departure.

Flight attendant reported her inbound, dinner flight, was catered with breakfast.

Service was outstanding - I've found the Horizon F/As working F to be excellent. She offered sparkling wine for a PDB, which I gladly accepted.

Choice of Turkey Sandwich or Protein Plate ... I recall the LAX-SEA "dinner" flights have more substantial options in the past.

I haven't been on QX E175 yet. Is that really how they serve the mixed nuts? That seems incredibly tacky

F/A indicated they failed to load the ramekins.

Same two choices of the clementine chicken or the bibimbop (vegetarian rice bowl). I had always chosen the chicken.

Today changed it up and got the bibimbop (vegetarian rice bowl), the FA added the “hot sauce” on after. This dish was a nice change. However the “sauce” is the same as the sauce they used last year to pour over some Asian chicken type of dish I’m pretty certain.

No menu

Choice of omelet with cheese and kale, roasted potatoes and chicken sausage or something else (which sounded so uninteresting that I forgot what it was). Scone and fruit offered with the first drink, then the breakfast entree's were brought out. PBD of bottled water, coffee and OJ. The FA was very nice, efficient but not intrusive. Great flight overall. Arrived 20 minutes early.
