Itís funny, when they used to serve a warm cookie on late evening flights, a lot of people would say ďI canít believe all they offered was a cookie. How about at least a snack basket?Ē Now that there is a snack basket, I suppose itís inevitable some will miss the warm cookies.

Steak sighting:

My upgrades BWI-SEA-DEN popped four days out so I was able to pre-select dinner on AS765 BWI-SEA:




I chose the steak - description indicates mushroom sauce, fingerling potatoes and beet micro-greens. I hope it looks good like post 241 OGG-ANC. I'll post photos post-flight.

SEA-DEN is at 9:20 p.m. so snack basket only, but at least it's an Airbus so I can sleep before a 12:59 a.m. arrival.

Westbound breakfast offerings

Iím flying BOS-SEA in a couple of weeks. Iím in 3A on the 738 so I want to pre-order. Choices are shown as a breakfast bowl w/ veggies, sausage, eggs, and hash browns or a spinach omelet with bacon. Has anyone had experience with this menu yet?

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.
I was on your flight...one week earlier! Stuck in the back though. I was wondering, did you get upgraded to first or buy? I am just curious how "easy" upgrades are for elites for HNL to PNW. Apologies if my inquiry is not appropriate here.

For this trip I used a GGU coming home to upgrade. Iíve had real hot and cold experiences with upgrades out of Hawaii. I think generally itís elite light with more leisure travelers. I travel three or four times a year. In January my wife and I were upgraded at the gate. But no luck home. In November I flew out of Maui upgraded and an empty seat next to me! The. Other times it looks like a lot of purchased F or at least instant upgrades since itís full well before the 120 hour mark. Long story short: hard to predict! We can take the chat to another new thread if you want!

Preorder is finally up for my upcoming 4/13 AS 771 flight (DCA - PDX). Why did they have to put mushrooms on both choices? 😩 I guess itíll be a fruit and cheese platter for me

It doesn't have to be.

FYI, the sauce is heated in the oven in a small aluminum tin separate from the steak, and you can ask to have it not included.

Not very hot when it got to me, but enough flavor in there to order it again. Looked like the person who had the cod next to me actually had a bigger plate of food compared to the pasta.

Date: April 2, 2019
Route: BWI-SEA
Flight Number: 765
Departure time: 5:05 p.m.
Menu: Yes
Meal description: Dinner


I'm happy to report that my "steak expectations" were not unfulfilled

We departed right on time; my pre-order was acknowledged by the very sweet flight attendant working the F cabin.




Warm nuts and drinks; I chose a Woodford Reserve. Seconds on the nuts were offered, which I gladly accepted. A new round of "city" napkins seems to be in circulation now; I also saw Nashville and Puerto Vallarta and a fourth city that escapes me at the moment.



Dinner arrived on a single tray and was exactly as described in the menu. The soup was "creamy roasted red pepper and smoked gouda." It had a very nice, smoky pepper flavor. The salad had three kinds of carrots, including purple. The greens were fresh, although the balsamic vinaigrette was a bit sharp for my taste. The roll was perfectly chewy and also tasted fresh. I switched to red wine, which was Battle Creek Cellars 2017 Unconditional Pinot Noir. I enjoyed it as well.



The steak was excellent; a bit less tender as sirloin isn't a filet, but the flavor was nice and the meat was still a bit rare. The mushroom sauce was a nice complement, as was the asparagus (very tender) and the fingerling potatoes.



Dessert was the Strawberry Rhubarb with Cinnamon Crumble from Salt & Straw. Delicious as well. The snack basket came around a couple of times a bit later.

This was one of the best meals I've had on Alaska - nice service as well.

AS 652 PDX - DFW on 4/5

started with a smoothie shot and then was given a choice of the cheese, onion, and tomato omlette or a spring breakfast bowl. No menus today. Iím having a meatless day, so the flight attendant obligingly left the sausage off my tray; might be a good breakfast option for a vegetarian. After breakfast they came around with a pass of the snack basket
