That be garlic or kimchee?

Personally, I'd love to take ripe durians onboard.

FWIW, the food service on my usual ORD-XNA American Eagle 8:30am flight was just INCREASED. Typically we're lucky to get a breakfast bar, but this week, on two different 8:30am flights, they served these snack packs that had a breakfast bar, oreos, cheese & crackers, and goldfish.

I don't get it either. In the past two weeks I have flown 10 segments and meals are still being served.

"American will implement most of these changes by Nov. 1." From the first post.

People are relatively quiet now, but just wait til nov 1st, there will be near riots.

I think they can get away with it on shorter flights, but ones longer than 2 hours, hm...

Well, I haven't been quiet, and switched my business travel to UA; however I realized that since I have a bunch of miles on AA I'll be flying them on pleasure for a while now, and I can already see the riots in "starving" class. Lack of food has a tendency of making people real edgy.

I am glad I am not a Flight Attendant.
