Lol....I don't think I had ever seen that word ("bibimbap") until I saw it on Flyertalk

You can Frequent Korean restaurants or make friends with a Korean Graduate student. This is how we discovered Bibimbap and many more wonderful dishes !

Menu card offered.

Choice between a squash and tortilla thing OR a some cut type of beef called a top notch/top tier or something on mashed potatoes served with colorful carrots.

The beef was tender. The sauce was nice. Not too salty. I also enjoyed the mashed potatoes and carrots.

Soup was served as I like it, hot.

Hit the spot for me. One of the better in-flight dinner meals of late.

AS 1469 BNA to SEA on 11/15

They ran out of the butternut squash casserole by the time they got to my row, but the flight attendant obligingly left the mushroom sauce off the soy-glazed roasted chicken option for me, so that worked. Desert was a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie

Breakfast on this morning's 0935 SFO-EWR. Menu cards were offered. Never offered the opportunity to order in the app the last 5 days, but ended up with what would have been my choice anyway.

Dinner on tonight's 1905 EWR-SFO with 9/16 occupied in F. Went for the very tasty enchilada casserole and would readily order it again. Great attentive service throughout the 6 hour flight.

Got a similar dish on MCO - SFO last week and it was terrible and tasteless.

It was absolutely delicious. Not kidding. The sauce was sublime, the polenta perfect and the Brussels sprouts just beautiful. I love Brussels sprouts and these were really, really good but I do question the wisdom of serving them in an airplane meal for 2 reasons. 1) most people are not fans, and 2) it is an enclosed metal tube and they are, well, Brussels sprouts. It was easy to tell which meal the guy behind us had after an hour or two.

Route: PDX-DAL
Flight Number: 3344 (OO/SkyWest)
Departure Time: 5:10PM
Menu: No
Meal Description: Dinner
A/C: E175

Dinner choices were the aforementioned Smoked Goad/Turkey sandwich, or a salad with "fire-roasted chicken". I had the latter, served with a decent roll. The chicken was tasty but I couldn't tell that it had been "fire-roasted".

Warm nuts served earlier.

PDB was water only, nothing else offered. Though the service in general has been above average (i.e. attentive and I've gotten my Woodford on time!)

This hurts my soul! I forget that Korean food isn't always popular in other areas. Growing up about a mile from the Korea town in Santa Clara and having a number of Korean co-workers, I'm all about Korean food.

Truthfully there's hardly any asian food I won't eat and enjoy. Would love more asian dishes offered on AS. I find curries really good on planes as all that seasoning helps with the effects of cabin pressure and humidity on plane food.

And I agree with Williwaw that a soft boiled egg would be hard to nail down on a plane.

I'm back on EWR-SFO tonight, my last Alaska flight of the year, and ordered the same meal again (butternut squash enchilada casserole) as did the 75K passenger next to me. Must be an Orlando thing as our dishes came out hot and we both enjoyed them.

AS 764 PDX - DCA on 11/19




No smoothie and no sage sumac dressing. Not sure if they weren’t catered or if they were just forgotten. Overall though, it was a decent meal
