6:40PM ORD/MIA not a dinner flight?

I got upgraded for this Saturday flying ORD/MIA departing at 6:40PM arriving 10:52PM. When I go to select my entrée nothing is there. This has to be dinner flight, no? Also, I fly MIA/ORD on Friday departing at 1:55PM, is this out of the lunch timeframe?

expertflyer shows AA 2193, at those departure and arrival times for those cities, as having dinner in first class. AA 1090 The 1:55 flight to MIA from ORD on Friday shows a 763 with lunch in first. if it's not showing for reserve an entree, it's just a glitch.

And there's plenty of glitches. Here's the thread about advance entree selection. The glitches have been going on for months:

I mean, none of them are actually good, when compared to actual good restaurant food or food cooked at home by any semi-competent cook.

Actually, it's been documented that the same things taste differently at high altitude, so even actual good restaurant food or food cooked at home by any semi-competent cook, if taken up to eat on the plane (after it's reached full altitude), might not taste as good as it did at the restaurant or at home.

But in any case, if you want hot (or at least still warm by that time) food when the plane reaches full altitude, your choices are probably limited to what's in the airport terminal reasonably near the gate you left from, not arbitrary restaurants or food cooked at home.

Am I the only one here that thinks airline food tastes pretty good? Even what they got cooking up in int'l Y. I usually finish all my entrees.

Curious to hear about what exactly it is about high altitude that makes food taste differently. Are certain taste receptors hyperactive? Does saltiness or sweetness get accentuated or diminished?

Likely just a glitch AA will most certainly serve a meal at that time on a hub to hub flight that length.
