Route: HNL-PDX
Flight Number: AS 834
Departure time: 12:15 PM delayed to 1:07
Menu: Yes
Meal Description: (I preordered so not much chitchat)
PDB: No - just water. The late plane and turn around made service a little abbreviated

Choice between seared cod with brown rice, carrots, and gai lan (Chinese broccoli) or penne pasta with arugula salad. Pre-ordered the cod, thinking it was the curry flavored cod from last month. Instead it was fish and rice with a nice ginger soy sauce. Pretty good all around dish. The desert was macadamia nut ice cream from a Hawaiian company.

Route: DAL-SFO
Flight Number: AS 3395
Departure time: 3:30PM
Menu: No
Meal Description: Protein Plate or Korean Chicken Sandwich
PDB: Choice of Champagne or Mimosa

Picked the sandwich. Tasted a lot better than it looked. Think the Bulgogi dish from last summer. Was served with chips, but no dessert. Mints were served as were nuts. A snack basket was offered mid-flight.

Route: SFO - IAD
Flight Number: AS 1102
Departure time: 3:45pm
Menu: No
Meal Description: Herbed chicken or cheese ravioli
PDB: Only water bottles

I went with the chicken. Sorry the picture quality isn’t great; too much red mood lighting on the pmVA plane. Soup was a butternut squash. The star of this meal was the mashed potatoes and gravy, which were delicious. The chicken was also served with asparagus and artichoke hearts. Ice cream and the snack basket were both offered later in the flight, but I passed on both, so not sure what the ice cream flavor was

I was offered it last week about 1.5 hours before landing on a 6am PDX-MCO flight. I believe it was even listed on the menu, under “prior to arrival”.

This is a picture of the morning West to East offerings, took it about 2 weeks ago. It’s on the printed menu as offered prior to arrival.



Morning West to East snack basket.

The snack basket was brought around about 30 minutes after our snack on PHX-SEA AS633 5:25 pm flight on March 23rd. Awesome non-stop service by Martin on the 2.5 hour flight. Martin welcomed each passenger by name when taking orders for the snacks and drinks and thanked Elites for their Loyalty. I was in 2F and 1F was a MM. Throughout the flight he always spoke to everyone on a first name basis.

The snack choices were the protien plate or the Turkey & Provolone warm sandwich with a bag of chips. Seattle chocolate served on the tray. Snack Basket followed and just before landing a basket of mints were brought out with a thank you for flying with AS today.

Kudos sent to Alaska.

James in Kelowna.

On AS868, the 2:50pm LIH-OAK on Tuesday, March 26, choice of cod or penne pasta accompanied by a salad and tomato soup. Flight time was a quick 4 hours 20 mins.

This is what was offered in F last night.
DEN/SEA
8:25pm
One pass of snack basket. 2 offers for drinks. No PDB.
FA's spent most of flight in forward galley chatting very loudly during most of flight.
Expected much more for a 3 hour flight.

About the same service on my recent LAX-SFO and SFO-LAX flights. Shame they couldn't cater/offer something more for a much longer flight. Even felt some ice cream or a cookie could've been served on the SFO/LAX flights.

I agree. Really thought we would get a warm cookie , at the very least. Hoping for 1/2 sandwich but, no go. In light of AS promotions highlighting the "new and updated" First Class offerings, last night was a big disappointment. Would have been happy with "old" service standard.

I've had the opposite experience on this route, which again comes down to the FA. But on my flights we had 2-3 passes of the basket, essentially until it was fully depleted, and the FA kept our drinks filled until descent. Really just depends on the FA you get.
