No Ice Cream Sundaes/no warm chocolate chip cookies--both things I like about AA but they're only available in 2-class J or 3-class F on the international routes

dfw - eze

I flew DFW - EZE in J last week on a 777. Overall service was Ok but food was poor.

Starters: Just mixed nuts (not option of marinated cheese antipasto)

No appetizer.

The Ice cream was rock-ice.

Chicken provenzal main meal was Ok, nothing to rave about but quite small though.

I flew DUB - ORD also on the 17th. A much better service on the 757L surprisingly.

WOAH! Hummus?!?!?!

What happened to the marinated cheese antipasto?

Somebody PLEASE reassure us that this is unique to the NRT market.....(although I had the cheese as normal on my NRT flights last year)

Another thing I notice about the LAX-NRT menu is that they moved the fruit salad up and are now offering it as an alternative to the sundaes, INSTEAD of as the accompaniment to the baked-on-board cookies with the pre-arrival meal.

Presumably they are loading fewer fruit salads then?

I always thought that the fruit salad WITH the cookies really hit the spot before landing. Do others agree?

I liked the hummus, nice and garlicky for a 12+ hour flight. I made good use of the tooth paste in the amenity bag.

I always wash both down with a Coke. I never like to land with my glucose below 300.

Flew CDG - MIA today in J

I have to say that I think AA really keeps improving their wine selections on the CDG route in J. The bordeaux, Chateau Belgrave 2003 (Haut Medoc) was excellent and is a wine I already know and love. I like the fact that they always serve a 5th growth Bordeaux on the Paris route in J - over the years I have seen Chateau Cantermerle, Lynch Moussas and most recently (last year) Batailley. Belgrave is my favorite so far.

I had the same first course and main in J on LHR-JFK last night. The steak was nicely rare and very tender and flavorful. It was quite nice. I opted for the fruit and cheese rather than the sundae, however.

I flying JFK-NRT in J in early April. I was trying to decide whether to order the traditional Japanese meal in J. I always did that on UA on flights to and from NRT but havent tried it on AA. Any comments on what is currently in the Japanese meal and the other options for early April? Thanks.

We ordered the Japanese meals in J last month ORD-NRT-ORD and found it to be a nice chance of pace. As you would imagine, the return meal was better than the outbound

Ditto - had the same entree on the LHR-JFK a few hours before you. The steak actually looked medium-well to well-done when I looked at the interior color. However, it was well-seasoned and extremely tender, more like a medium-rare.

I was bumped (voluntarily) off of another flight, so I had the last aisle seat in Business (8H). Knowing that I would be among the last to choose my meal, I already decided that I would get the halibut or chicken when they told me they ran out of beef. Surprisingly, all entrees except for the PASTA was available when the FA got to me!

I found the tomato/mushroom app to be pretty skimpy. The chocolate sundae was delicious, but I only finished half as it was way too rich. (Perhaps I should have followed Tom's example and used a Baileys to help was it down. )
