Probably not necessary to start a new one to discuss the same thing.

Cheers.

Weird that this qualifies as "Refreshments". This seems more in line with 'Snack' or 'Lunch'

Eagle has been upping the game on CR7 in First. I was on an ORD-EWR flight a few weeks ago (scheduled 6:30 departure that left @ 9PM due to wx) and they served a similar meal. I was surprised.

NY to Detroit - Food in FC. Mystery Solved

I would encourage you to have this moved or post this on the domestic meals thread. It can then be more easily found by people in the future.

Not only that, but not sure why anyone would be so concerned about a "meal" on a flight from LGA-DTW that they would waste time calling all kinds of folks at American. Not only that, but it's two-hour regional flight at 1025am, I certainly wouldn't expect a breakfast, let alone any type of real meal.
Lots of people come on to FlyerTalk and questions about their flight that would never be of interest to me, but I don't tell them they're wasting their time trying to find an answer. If I have info I share it, if I don't I move on, or keep reading the thread if it suddenly becomes interesting to me. But I don't trivialize them for asking their question.

I said in other posts why I asked, but honestly, it's not important. I had a question and hoped that someone on AA or here would be able to answer it.
AA couldn't and the answers here were that 1. I can find the info on AA (not possible), 2. guesses from members here (none correct) and finally 3. getting a little "beat up" for asking a question that's not important to someone else.

Sorry if my question wasn't important to you. It was to me.

And in the bigger picture, AA should have this info on their site.

You're right. My apologies.

Would be nice. Their definitions of food and the timings are truly confusing.

Ignore the haters. This info is useful for at least me as I have a similar flight next week on AE in F listed as refreshment. Haven't flow AE in years.

Did you have a first class seat 24 hours before flight time? If yes, did you get a choice to choose your meal prior to flight?

Q: What flights are eligible for entrée reservations?
A: You may reserve your First or Business Class entrées on all filghts where meal service is offered. First and Business class entrée selection is only offered on American Airlines marketed and operated flights.

I'd also thank you for providing a much more informative post than many of the members in this thread who simply complained about you asking the question - so thanks for contributing to the FT discourse!

And I suspect that the OP's flight was incorrectly coded as a "Refreshment" flight in F on aa.com. The food service that the OP received qualifies, at a minimum, as a "Snack," if not a "Lunch." I'm guessing that whoever is responsible for coding the meal service for AA flights on aa.com dropped the ball here.

Thanks to the OP for following up with a final answer to the question they asked, many OPs do not.

Looks like you lucked out and the info on AA.com was incorrect. I have never seen it happen, and I don't recall reading about it on FT (BA award searches often don't show the correct meal).

While the FA likely knew the correct answer (that a snack/meal is always served on that flight), it is possible the flight received catering when it usually does not.

That is not my question. I am asking about the OP's personal experience on this flight.
