This is late in 2018 but the menu item is "new" so I am posting in 2019.

Date: Dec. 26, 2018

Route: SEA-DEN
Flight Number: 682
Departure time: 5:45 p.m.
Menu: No
Meal description: Snack


After many turkey (hot) and roast beef (cold) sandwiches, this turkey burger tasted great and was a nice change. Protein plate was the other choice. The turkey patty was thick and juicy. I would have liked some mustard and a bag of chips but that is a small quibble. Seattle Chocolates peppermint/dark was dessert. Service was a bit slow/disorganized but not bad.

Route: JFK-LAX
Flight Number: 1411
Departure time: 1:00p ETD (4:00p ATD)
Menu: Yes/No: Yes
Meal description: Dinner

Starter was the leek and potato soup, which was good. Main course choices were the cod or spinach ravioli. I went with the ravioli. Kale seemed a little undercooked but it was probably for the better as it kept the pasta from being overcooked. Came with diced/grilled sweet potatoes and was overall tasty as well.

I'm digging the new meal trays they're using too. Much better than the old cafeteria trays and a good alternative to VX's linen service.

Currently on board AS1106, the 10:30am Airbus departure SFO-RDU. Pre-ordered chicken with clementines and that came with a gooey chocolate chip cookie for dessert. Wasn't provided a menu being that I pre-ordered. Many Clemson fans on board and we had a school cheer at the gate before departure.

THAT looks FANTASTIC.
Perhaps a little bit small. But presentation is very good!

Menu: No. Tha FA had to make do with a printout with tiny pictures. Fortunately, being Korean, she was able to explain bibimbap in detail.
Meal description: Dinner

I preordered the bibimbap, for which I was praised by the FA. The portion is on the small side and it's been adjusted significantly for an American audience. Example: the egg was cooked to over medium. But it was good and the sauce really was spicy. Some of my fellow passengers did not enjoy the sauce as much as I did. Fancy ice cream afterwards, good as always.

I also love the new trays. Though I wish they would go back to the butter in the wrapper instead of in the dish. I liked warming it in my hands before use.

I had this meal the other day on PDX-ORD....I only wished it tasted as half as good as it looks.

On last night's AS1107, the 7:20pm delayed to 9:30pm RDU-SFO Airbus flight, I had spinach bolognese ravioli. Cheese and extra sauce were on the side. The menus were presented with a plastic cover as if they were just pulled out of a binder (and taken back after our selections were made). The on-line menu showed cod as the other option, though unable to preorder meals on this flight.

AS 764 from PDX to DCA on 1/10

Choice of sweet potatoe hash or a Montamore tomatoe omlette. I pre ordered the omelette and was very happy with my choice. Flight attendants were excellent, with offers of pre departure beverages and very attentive throughout the flight.

My unscientific observations are that the turkey burger served as a dinner includes chips and guacamole. Served as a snack, it does not.

Those are our choices for SEA-HNL next week. We have currently picked 1 of each!

The person next to me chose to skip the meal, so I didnít get a good look at the hash option. Interested to hear what people think of it

I know that airline food is a punching bag and complaints about AS' food go back decades. That said, I think AS' F food has gotten better in the last year or two. More imaginative, a bit healthier and it certainly has more eye appeal. Look at the all the colors in the posted images.

Of course, YMMV.
Flying for Fun likes this.

I only started flying Alaska transcons 25 months ago, and I've been pretty happy with Alaska meals. Any recent sightings of my two favorite desserts, though: the Chuckanut Bay cheesecake or the huge, calorie laden brownie?

Since the Turkey Burger seems to be currently present on LAX/SEA routes, I looked up what flights have S (snack) and/or B-L-D (breakfast,lunch dinner) designation for F meal.
Looks like all pmVX flights have meal designation. Our flight is listed as Lunch. All other AS flights have S for snack . Will be interesting to see what is offered, will probably be just plain turkey burger.
