Was that the Poulet Basquaise? I am very laid back about airline food but that was the most tasteless entrée I've ever had on AA. I hope you selected the ravioli. I know I wished I had!

It was, and I agree it was pretty bland. I was in Boston the night before and had Italian in North End (a very good chicken parmigiana and rigatoni plate), so wasn't keen on another Italian meal. Only ended up on this plane because of the weather reroute around ORD.

AA264: LAX - BOS
I was caught on the wrong side of FEBO so I didn't get my meal choice. I ended up with the cold beef plate. The FA in the FC cabin was Matt. Great guy, very attentive, and came through the cabin around a dozen times throughout the flight to make sure everyone's glasses were full.

AA102 HNL-DFW: Had the 4 cheese ravioli with tomato cream sauce too. Very good. Even the Mrs. commented she liked and she cooks Italian. My general rule of thumb on AA pasta dishes is that if it is in a red sauce I order it, if it is a white sauce I don't as the white sauces tend to have the consistency of Plaster of Paris IMO.

We also had the Sam Choy teriyaki beef AA297 LAX-HNL about 2 weeks ago. This was not our first choice and when we got it we knew why. It was "mushy" slightly undercooked and general inedible. It must have been over tenderized or something. OTOH, we had the chicken pot pie on the flight before, JFK-LAX, and it was delicious. And, yes, I did send an email to AA CS about the two meals, both bad and good.

Sounds good.

Thanks for the photos! I agree that the pasta dishes are delicious! (except the tortelini with mushroom sauce that is often served ex-MIA on shorthaul)

Probably my most favorite domestic AA meal.

I usually go for tasteless over the pasta, as the calories in the pasta must be north of 1000-1200 if you eat the whole thing.

The shrimp apps have been very nice, I wish I could get a plateful for my entree, along with some sauteed/steamed vegetables.

It's interesting that while even fast food restaurants and makers of junk food are offering healthy options, AA continues to focus on high fat, high calorie.

Naughty AA!!!
Kiwi Cuvee is the French trying to pass off there own Sauvignon Blanc as being from the Land of the Long White Cloud (Aotearoa/NZ), which is justifiably proud for its Sauvignon Blanc. An Australian wine tribunal. Ironic, isn't it. The French complained long and hard, quite rightly, about others using their regional names on produce from other places.

Unfortunately there is a glut at the moment of Sauvignon Blanc, so it seems it will go the way of Chardonnay - a bubble that will burst.

Exact option from BOS-LAX last week,
A disapointing downgrade

Had essentially the same choices on LAX-DFW MD 80 flight leaving about 8.30 am. I din't really care for the "skillet scramble". Bagel was OK.

Same on AA 299 (MIA-LAX 772) this morning (Jan. 10th). I enjoyed the eggs, very good.

Also, on my last two trans-cons the FA's never took orders, they just served food and asked from the cart. Is this new? I don't really like. I liked the order taking - it just added a touch of personal service.

I agree. Even though we all know red meat is hit or miss.
