I had the sausage stuffed fillet in F flying LHR-ORD on February 7 - it was truly awful I took one bite and pushed the plate away. The FAs were very responsive an offered me one of the extra pasta entrees from J.

The combo of the beef and sausage revolting - IMHO of course.

Thanks for the photos It looked like the carrots were not overcooked and actually were visually well presented.

Sausage in a roulade?

A german roulade has no sausage inside it!

Tom911:

Good to see you in ORD.

The meals on the ORD-FRA route where different too. I had the shrimp and scallop Indian Curry and it was quite tasty. By the time they came to row 4 they were out of the beef fillets. (Thanks Weinskkb)

I know that the beer selection on AA is horrendous so I brought my own this time. I asked the FA to open and serve it and they gladly did so. I got some jealous looks from 1B though.

Our crew was outstanding and very very personable

I forget the wine list, but I think we had Pommery for champagne.
And how did you get to try two main courses?

Very easy... you ask..

Airlines have more J class meals than J pax. The rest goes to the crew in many cases. If you ask nicely, they will give you another one if they have them

I had the roulade a couple weeks ago, and although I usually enjoy American's food, I ended up just eating the filet around the outside and giving the sausage back. The carrots were also a little sweet for my liking.

The lamb is a much better choice, IMO.
I found the lamb to be a bit dry to my taste. The roulade was okay, but just that IMHO.

I had that as my "dine on request" meal JFK-LHR last week, though it's one of those rare times I did not care for the curry and ate around it. PHOTO

I tend to rotate around. I've had the plain ice cream with amaretto poured over it, and other times the full sundae with the chocolate, whipped cream and nuts. Just depends how I feel at the time.

Looks tasty, unfortunately tonight I'm in "steerage" so my dining choices won't be as sumptious. But I'll take photos so you poor folks in J can see what you're missing.

(hope you passed on the frozen sludge, as I would have)

I did DFW-FRA in F in December and the food from FRA-DFW (which I was awake for) was some of the worst I've had on an international flight. Most of it was inedible.

I also noticed that the food and menu was basically the same as J so it was quite disappointing.

The method of service was the only thing I saw as differentiating between F and J.

It has to be AA related as LH does a good job ex-FRA
