I enjoy the AA cheeseburger, and it's been a while since it's made an appearance on any of my flights.

I too enjoy the AA cheeseburger (I also carry packets of hot sauce on the flight which makes the food more enjoyable).

I won't go as far to say I like it, but I was pleasantly surprised. Granted I probably set the bar at 2/10 and it was about a 5/10.

Having seen and tasted it exactly once, I just assumed that the Billy Goat Tavern in Chicago was the supplier for the "cheeborger"

Seems that I haven't been "lucky" to be on a flight where a cheeseburger was offered as an option. I hope it is better than the chicken parmesan which I've already endured 4 times in the last couple of weeks.

chicken parmesan =

I really enjoy the beef quesadilla yet rarely encounter it.

Despite my earlier post, I think the cheeseburger is okay. Not great but certainly good enough for a quick snack. Could use a bit more flavor and perhaps another pack of ketchup.

I also like the beef quesedillas although the tray contains enough cheese to keep the Wisconsin economy alive even in a recession. Pics from a flight back in February.

I highly doubt that AA has anything at all to do with the type of meat served on board. Aside for some very limited exceptions (i.e. ex-BDA), AA does not cater its own flights.

Seems like your question would be better addressed on a LSG or GateGourmet forum.

The airlines specify what they want and what they want to spend, and the catering companies provide it. If the airlines say "meat", the catering agent says "what color?" Some colors are more---how you say---cost-effective than others.

Oh give me a break!

This forum is for discussing anything related to AA. Apart from the silliness in sending OP to non-existent forums, what would you next say, don't like a plane, go to the Boeing forum?

I haven't had an AA burger since last summer. Wonder if the pulled pork sandwich with the fried pickle might be making a comeback, too.
