AS849 IAD-SEA, Fri 19 Apr
  • nuts
  • roasted red pepper & smoked gouda soup
  • salad
  • choice of Seared Top Sirloin or Asparagus Risotto as described earlier (I pre-ordered the risotto; it looked more like a salad when the FA delivered it, and tasted more like a featured offering at an avant-garde vegetarian restaurant)
  • Salt & Straw (I was asleep, don’t know what flavor was offered)

PDB of coffee offered, plus the following inflight. Very good for a 34 minute flight. When did the E175s get glassware?

glassware is dependent on whether you’re on a Horizon operated flt or a Skywest operated flt.

4/12/19
BOS-SEA
AS741 (737-800)
8:40AM departure
Menu: loaded, but not distributed
Breakfast

Menus were not offered. When I asked if they were loaded the flight attendant said that they were but she didn’t distribute them since verbal descriptions were more personal. I can appreciate that on the surface, but being asked “omelet or breakfast bowl” vs an actual menu I’ll take the latter.
First class was served by an ex-Virgin American flight attendant, as evidenced by both pre departure beverages and all meal items being served at once. Breakfast consisted of plain yoghurt and tasteless granola, fruit, and a choice of an omelet or a breakfast bowl. I ordered the omelet, filled with cheese and supposedly artichoke and spinach. The highlight of breakfast was the crispy bacon served with it; I also enjoyed the potatoes. I was in row 3 but had pre-ordered my choice. My travel companion ordered the breakfast bowl, which I believe had sausage, egg, hash brown, veggies, and hollendaise.
After the meal the flight attendant disappeared into the galley. The snack basket was offered mid-flight and again before landing. Otherwise service was entirely reactive. It has been a long time since I’ve done a trans-con in Alaska first class so I don’t know if this is normal or not, but no crew member ever came though refilling water like on United. As a result I pressed the call button a few times

Pdx-Pvr same thing without the yogurt and granola. Pretty tasty. Even got pre departure coffee.

I chose the chicken; can’t recall exactly what the other option was, but think it might have been risotto. One of the people I was traveling with is highly allergic to artichokes and they were featured on both dishes. Bad luck for her, but she said she enjoyed the fruit and cheese plate that she preordered

Haven’t seen these for awhile on my flights. They all seem to have transitioned to butter mints

AS7 JFK to SEA.
Choice of “Farmer’s market breakfast bowl” or Spinach and Artichoke Omelette”. Decided to pre order the omelette.

Was very good. Service was on point.

The lack of menus or nutrition/ingredient information is extremely frustrating for someone with dietary restrictions or allergies. I much prefer to see a detailed description of what is being served than to ask "can you tell me if XXX has dairy/wheat/nuts, etc." or just roll the dice, order, and then waste food. I bring plenty of food/snacks for myself on all flights (Y or F) so I'm not asking AS to provide a DF/GF meal just for me but I REALLY hate having to ask what's in everything and most of the time the FAs don't know. Same goes for Y offerings - the menus should list common allergens just like the labels do on the food item. It's pretty standard fare in food labeling these days. And yes, I have suggested/requested this to AS Customer Care numerous times and continually get the response that I can request this information from a FA. IME, this info is either not available to the FA or they have no idea what I'm asking and I really hate holding up service for others while the FA digs around for ingredient/nutritional info. In lieu of menus, a detailed description or addition of ingredient info on the app would more than suffice.

4/25/19, AS 421. BNA - SEA, no menu offered.
I chose the Turmeric Oregano Chicken Breast, because I had never seen this before. It was served as the standalone main plate after salad and dinner roll.

It was surprisingly good—the curry sauce was mild and not overpowering, and the chicken wasn’t over-cooked. The cooked radish was a surprised replacement of potato or rice.

I think AS F catering has been improving lately. I had the beef dish three weeks ago on the BWI to SEA flight, and the farmers breakfast bowl on the JFK to PDX a couple weeks ago. Both were also very good. Kudo’s to their effort!

How far in advance are you supposed to be able to pre-order food? I have some F flights in May (part of a JL business class ticket) and I don't see the option yet.

Edit: nm; found the answer (2 weeks in advance) on the website. For some reason I thought it was a month (which is why I was surprised not to see it yet)
