Moderator Note: The mods periodically receive requests to limit this thread to food-only posts and/or limit the off-topic discussion. History has taught us that a food-only thread would require too much editing. Members see a food post and many want to comment.

On the other hand, we can try to limit off-topic discussion. This thread is one of the most read and commented on each year. Staying on-topic keeps it manageable and increases its value and utility.

A few off-topic posts have been deleted to help start us off on the right foot. Please try to post and comment only on the food served in AS F. Thanks for your cooperation.

Flight Number: 655
Departure time: 15:10
Menu: No
Meal description: lunch; baked cod.

This was really quite good. I chose the cod over the veg pasta option. Entree was served as a second course, separately.
Crew was great.
We had water bottles handed to us at the end of boarding.







The carrots were curried. Yum!
Dessert was a chocolate chip cookie, which the F/A offered as a snicker doodle..... ok...

It's supposed to be a snickerdoodle. All of the paperwork would have said snickerdoodle. Odds are catering just gave them the wrong cookies

I must say that I was really quite impressed. I would have PREFERRED a more luxurious dessert, if I must complain. But as for the actual meal itself, from bread (and hey! They even catered butter this time!) to salad to entree, I was really very pleased with both quality AND quantity.
Alaska needs to keep up this good work; I was flying on an MVPG elite upgrade, but it made me reconsider whether I'd be willing to actually pay for AS F.

I figured it was something like this.
I'd had a snickerdoodle on the outbound, PDX-DAL leg, and while it could have been good, it was actually undercooked, and had raw cookie dough in the middle.
Being a big fan of cookie dough, I wasn't particularly upset...!

Route: BOS-SFO
Flight Number: 1357
Departure time: 7:25pm, but delayed to 8:58pm
Menu: Yes
Meal description: Dinner

Water bottle at the seat upon boarding, but no PDB. At take-off: hot towel, menu, beverage, and warm nuts. Entree options were roasted cod or veggie spinach bolognese ravioli.

This was the first Airbus flight I've taken where I was able to pre-order a meal, and the FA noted my order. Starter + main dish came out at the same time (salad, bread, and entree -- they did not serve the soup listed on the menu).

After the meal service, the FA asked who wanted ice cream. I was served cinnamon snickerdoodle in a Salt & Straw-branded cup. The passenger sitting next to me remarked that they forgot the ice cream on his last flight; the FA agreed that catering has been inconsistent recently.

The menu started in December. Looks like they forgot to put the yogurt sauce on it, or it wasn’t catered.

They are roasted grapes (on the Cod entree). Interesting add of texture, with a ‘burst’ of sweetness.

I had no yogurt sauce on mine, either. Seems like several things on AS's menu are figments of someone's imagination.

To answer the grape question, yeah, they were nice, and added something to the dish.

Meal description: Lunch- Roasted Cod with Cucumber Yogurt. Seared Alaskan cod seasoned with coriander and cumin, with a savory saffron basmati rice pilaf and cinnamon-paprika roasted carrots. Served with roasted red grapes and a cucumber-garlic yogurt sauce.
*Preordered 14 days in advance


I asked for the cucumber yogurt sauce to be left off and this didn't seem to cause too much trouble. The result was a very tasty lunch. The highlight of the flight was an incredibly delicious snickerdoodle cookie.

I'm actually a big fan of the turkey burger. I agree that it's a little bland, but mine at least had good tomatoes and some guac to moisten things up a bit. Plus chips and the raw cookie dough snicker doodle I mentioned upthread!

Mine yesterday was "raw" as well. I just assumed this was intended as it was so good...
