Because the symptoms began on the plane, and I didn't eat anything in ORD.

I have blindly trusted the food served on AA's planes up until now, but I could see where on such a long trip something bad eaten early might cause problems before one lands.

Sorry you went through that and hope it wasn't too severe. OT: my bout with dysentery in Mumbai was horrible, sickest I've ever been. Wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. It was brought on by carelessness during eating (on a beach, not aboard AA flight).

Appropriate timing for this subject. Last Monday on a MEX-DFW flight I ate the beef empanada. 24 hours later I considered going to the ER. My poisoning was way beyond "turista", "montezuma's revenge" or "delhi belly" with some abdominal cramping that I have never experienced before. The doctor suggested I stay home drinking lots of fluids since I had no fever, rather than spend the day hooked up to an IV bag in a hospital room. My own bed and toilet would be much more comfortable and she was right. The pain was extremely uncomfortable and now, a week later, I am still feeling some effects.

My weekend in Mexico City was spent with family and at restaurants that I have eaten at all of my life. A friend who was with us on the trip did not fly AA and did not get sick. My boyfriend ate the chicken and he was fine as well.

Welcome to FT

This thread is probably your best bet: <circular link removed post-merge>

(Found it by searching on the term [menu].)

I've flown aa in bc many times (generally between jfk and cdg, zrh, lhr) and the food is good but not spectacular, EXCEPT on one flight jfk-zrh, they had a spicy shrimp main course, which was far superior to anything else I've eaten. This item has not been on any my other flights.

Transcon Business Class Lunch

Tried to search but wasn't successful. What has AA been serving recently JFK-LAX for lunch in Business Class? Do they have sundaes/toppings choices?
Thanks

Lunch flights get the pre-made sludge, dinner flights get the made-to-order sundaes in transcon business class. AA does not do lunch very well, and if you are new to lunch flights, I would predict you will walk away disappointed. If you want to maximize the dining experience, I would switch to a dinner flight.

One question that I have not seen: Does service (re: FA attitiudes, food, etc) vary from a weekday flight to a weekend flight? I know it can vary from hour to hour, flight to flight. Just didn't know if is was "different" on the weekends.

I don't think they do dinner well either on the transcons. The entrees have been pretty bad my last few flights -- ravioli in cement cream sauce, shoe leather filet with watery and smelly mashed potatoes, etc. For lunch I got an Asian chicken wrap that was decent (not great, but perfectly edible). Of course you don't get the made-to-order sundae for dinner.

I just had the stuffed shells on JFK-MIA and it was pretty good.

This thread has now been merged into the consolidated thread on this topic (conveniently found in the User's Guide Sticky). There are a few posts upthread that may be of interest.
