Aa First Ord-las 9pm

This is my second AA flight within a month. Never flown during off meal times. Is there a snack on this flight? UA will usually give cheese and crackers on a late departing flight to the west coast. Warm nuts???? Thanks..

i think that flight is listed as 'refreshment' at 9:10pm

I know the red-eye back at 11:50pm is listed also as refreshment

I got warm nuts and fresh baked cookies on the return so would assume 'refreshment' would be similar.

Most of First was asleep shortly after takeoff (except my seatmate) and I woke to the smell of cookie being passed in front of me and then fell back asleep.

AA does not do the cheese/crackers/fruit on domestic flights.

Welcome to the dark side!

As with everyting there is an exception:

ORD to HNL and OGG
DFW to HNL and OGG

The pre-arrival snack is cheese, crackers and fruit.

Um, UA doesn't even offer First Class from ORD to LAS.

THWAP .. Good Golly HNL . thanks for the reality check!

To me, from MSP, most everything is a mid-con flight. Yes the Hawaii service would be of the length that would include a 'snack'. But as I was born in Wisconsin (the original CHEESE state before CA tried to muscle in) the offerings on the AA cheese/fruit are not 'really' cheese to me much of the times!

Since Domestic in AA's terminology includes Canada, Mexico, Caribbean and other locations, I bet the LAX-SJU would also serve a similar taste treat!

Also, the AFS snack flights offer cheese/crackers/fruit as one of the snack options (the other is a salad with cold meat on top).

Are you being punished?

You can look on the AA website and see what is being offered in your class of service. I've never purchased anything off the "food for sale" menu but it sounds pretty gross, but I've been told some of it isn't too bad. But then I was told the same thing about C-Rats in Vietnam!

On UA, if you request a special meal on flights that depart at "non meal" times, they throw something half-way decent your way. I'm not sure about AA...

Actually, I have occasionally bought things from this menu (not all the upgrades come through ). While the boxes don't sound all that appealing, I'vce had sandwiches/wraps. Turkey, in my case. Lots of turkey,lettuce, tomato (IIRC) and all condiments separate. Quite nice, all things considered.

Cheers.

Since the OP was asking about a mid-con flight .. no option for special meals. Special meals are available on transcons and select international flights only.

Look at http://www.aa.com/aa/i18nForward.do?...ecialMeals.jsp before AA disappoints you again.

Based on your recommendation I'll give the food for sale a try sometime.
