A disappointing start to 2021. No F&C or breakfast sandwich offered and no cookie... This was pitiful for a 4.5-hour flight. I'm assuming this is now standard fare for early AM departures from non-hub cities (with the plane sitting overnight). The crew were great though and it seemed like the FA was disappointed to be serving this.

I'm not sure this has to do with lack of catering at an outstation since the yogurt would still need refrigeration like the breakfast sandwich....and the cookies don't need refrigeration at all. I'm thinking more meal options have been added in January.

Assuming this was loaded in SEA and sat overnight on dry ice, I agree. If the yogurt can be kept safely I'd assume the F&C would be fine too. I was also confused by the announcement saying that food would not be offered for sale, but that if you had pre-ordered it, they would bring it to you. I assumed that this was just something said from memory and that they didn't actually offer pre-order F&C to main cabin.

I have heard this several times recently. Sitting in F, I did not see if any food was passed out in Y.

Pre-order of the F&C platter has been available since at least early November. I have ordered it multiple times on flights since November 5th. They won't accept payment during the flight so pre-order & payment details need to be provided before the catering cutoff time. I say payment details because you aren't charged until it is served to you on the flight. A miss-cater which happened on one flight or an upgrade to F means you won't be charged.

On my recent SJO-LAX flight, the only pre-order option was the protien platter I mentioned earlier with Ckicken, Cheese, Humus, Pita Bread, Carrot Stick & Almonds.

They are distributed just prior to drink service.

I decided to give the ham and brie wrap a try; I am not a fan. While itís nice to have a change from the chicken curry wrap, the H&B wrap was essentially a huge block of cheese and a wrap.

Definitely going to stick with the F&C platter for now.

We get this Denver-Seattle sometimes. Absolutely hate it. On a 4-plus-hour flight I would be very unhappy.

FlyFit yogurt doesn't require refrigeration. (Yuck)

Meal description (if given) Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack:

Options were a "turkey bacon wrap" or the fruit and cheese plate. Everyone in F went for the F&C plate but I did see the wrap, it looked to be in a red tortilla. Haven't seen this option before but was on a turn catered out of SEA.

Warmed chocolate chip cookies presented on descent. No snack basket.

Did someone say BACON???? Yum....talk about the perfect combo...turkey/bacon sandwich with a chocolate chip cookie! There have been enough reports of different meals being served in F than what's posted on the website so I think there are probably 2 or 3 options floating around now besides the standard fruit and cheese plate.

Now, does the wrap have turkey & bacon or bacon derived from turkey? Either way, Turkey is a long ways away. I anticipate it is catered overnight from Istan(turkey) and that's no Bul... The chocochips cookies are good once cooled but too many chips to be "rolling in the dough!"
