The 11:30 JFK-LAX flight today on Boeing was a little different. Coffe & Orange Juice offered as a PDB. After takeoff and the 10K bell the first round of drinks were served. Nuts came with the second round before lunch was served. The Cod was excellent. About 30 minutes later the snack basket came around. About 90 minutes before arrival, ice cream was served and then another round of the snack basket about an hour out. Drinks were proactively kept full throughout the flight. Excellent service.

James in Los Angeles.

17 March

Choice of Tumeric Chicken or Mushroom Risotto. I got the chicken which was pretty decent. A hair overcooked. The salad had significantly more crisp veggies in it which was nice. Standard AS bread roll.
Desert was the warm chocolate chip cookies....yes they are back.
The Snack Basket came through 2 times.

Route: JFK-SJC
Flight Number: 665
Departure time: 1655
Menu: Yes
Meal description: Dinner - Creamy roasted red pepper and smoked gouda soup. Mixed green salad with grape tomato, sliced cucumber, sliced heirloom carrots. Seared Top Sirloin w/creamy morel mushroom sauce, grilled spring asparagus, and herb roasted fingerling potatoes or Asparagus Risotto w/fava beans, roasted wild mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and fresh pea shoots and parmesan cheese.

I had the Beef and it was good, the morel sauce worked very well with it.

Presentation was in the order of drink(s), and warm mixed nuts. Then the meal tray was presented with the soup & salad, then the bread & butter, and then the entree. Trays were picked up and then Salt & Straw ice cream sea salt with caramel ribbons. Approximately 1 hour prior to landing the Snack Basket came through the cabin w/bananas, Pop Corners sea salt, Oberto beef jerky, Sahale mixed nuts, Be Kind Breakfast Bar Oatmeal & Honey

and THIS was the service done correctly - in case anyone here wonders how a transcon service should be presented. It seems like people do it a variety of ways but this is the correct way order of service.

Absolutely agree with that, I had that exact same meal on SFO-DAL last month. So much that I asked the flight attendant to check with their kitchen on where they sourced this bacon

Route: DTW-SEA
Flight Number: AS 793
Departure time: 3:20 PM
Menu: No
Meal Description: none given
PDB: No
Plating/Serving Order: Salad, roll, & entree delivered all at same time

Turmeric Oregano Chicken Breast - Boneless chicken breast marinated and roasted with olive oil, turmeric, lemon, and fresh oregano. Served with a Vadouvan curry infused lima bean puree, tender roasted radishes, thyme jus, and micro basil.

Asparagus Risotto - Creamy risotto with crisp asparagus, lava beans, roasted wild mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and fresh pea shoots garnished with cherry tomatoes and shaved parmesan cheese.


I had the Chicken, partner had the Risotto. We each tried a bit of both and both tasted great. Chicken was a bit overcooked but I’ll likely stick with this choice for future flights as I have concerns about how consistent the risotto will be (based on the rice w/ fish dish from earlier this year which ranged the gamut for me from borderline oatmeal/potato mush to dry as a crisp).

As others have noted, cookie appears to have been switched to Chocolate Chip. Ours was delivered immediately after dinner (by far the fastest post dinner to cookie delivery time I've had) and was an absolute mess (but delicious!) - could only imagine how tasty it would be if eaten alongside some ice cream.

Overall, much better than the Delta One food we ate flying AMS-DTW that same day.

I too had a “...?” moment, but it tasted just as described. Personally love lima beans though, so ymmv. I wish they were a bit “wetter” (if that makes any sense) to compensate for the chicken that wasn’t on the drier side, but no. Also thought the radishes were potatoes at first - they were great.

I too like lima beans, but would prefer to have them whole rather than mashed up like baby food....honestly, I suspect a lot of folks don't care for lima beans or stewed kale/chard, etc. which makes it an odd choice for an airline meal in which folks generally only have 2 (maybe 3) choices to pick from. I pre-ordered my business class meals the other day for some AA flights and appreciated seeing options I would actually eat at home....mashed potatoes with bacon, asparagus, southern bbq chicken, shrimp/crab pasta, etc....

Glad to hear. Personally, I was more wary of those than the Lima bean purée from the meal description. Roasted radishes aren’t something I see much of on the menus of restaurants I frequent

AS 391 PDX to SFO 11:30am departure on 3/24

Snack basket

Another passenger inquired about purchasing a fruit and cheese plate from the back and was told they weren’t stocked on this flight
