How are people liking the cheese lasagna? I have a choice between that and the Chicken Tikka Masala on my upcoming [domestic] flight, and I was thinking about getting the lasagna. After all, nothing like some pasta, red wine, and a few G&T's to make sleeping overnight in DFW a better experience.

IMO the lasagna is pretty standardized (though I usually eat half); the chicken anythingcan vary a lot - dry and ugly to mushy with everything in between.

The Chicken Tikka Masala is pretty gross IMO and resembles true Chicken Tikka Masala in very few ways. Lasagna isn't great either but will likely be the safer choice. Is this really an international flight? This is typically on the domestic menu.

This is domestic/Caribbean/Mexico meal service.

It is important to note that this chicken tikka masala is NOT the same as the "Chooza Tikka Masala" previously offered on IFS flights. I really enjoyed the latter. The "new AA" domestic version is pretty gross...the last time I had it, you couldn't even tell it was a slab of chicken and not some other mystery meat. It's disappointing... Along with the disappearance of the baked-on-board cookies and linen tray liners... 😢

2015 AA International Meals - menu /menus, photos, etc. (consolidated)

Just was on the aa105 and aa181 .. ALL of the food main courses and pre arrival options were inedible . Jalapeño chicken .. Tiny piece of overcooked chicken in a bland uninteresting sauce .. With undercooked ( almost raw ) potatoes with overcooked green beans .. Portion size was in line with a US domestic flight .. Not a transatlantic one . Pre arrival meal ( flatbread ) cold , tiny portion and tasteless .. Had a better pre arrival meal on KLM in Y class on my last JFK flight .. Was sat in 3J and heard F class passengers audibly complaining about the food ,
Also the salad was tiny in quantity and if I had that quality of salad in my fridge at home it would have gone into the bin !
AA 181 .. Main course beef .. Tiny , overcooked with sweet potato mash with a crust on it it had been cooked that long !
The only saving grace was the FL in JFK had great food that I had only a brief sample off before boarding ..

All in all AA 2015 food so far 2/10 bad show !

AA176 NRT-DFW Dec. 31

Since the 2014 thread is closed, I will post this here. A recent change is that the Japanese meal is now a regular menu choice, pre-ordering doesn't seem necessary.

Menu


Appetizer tray



That's gold leaf on the bean cake!

Main


Pre-arrival breakfast


The Japanese meals especially leaving Japan are very good. The breakfast was very good as well, the quiche had a light and flaky crust and the potatoes and asparagus were well prepared.

IME the Japanese meal on any airline ex-Japan is always a good choice. Ex-USA it is often not.

GIG-MIA
Business Class
777-200, 10:15PM departure

This is merely documentation of the menu, because as I stated in this thread, a very lengthy mechanical delay resulted in the crew having to throw away dinner without serving it. Breakfast was served though.

DINNER
Starter
Fresh Mozzarella and Prosciutto
with melon

Salad
Fresh Greens with Seasonal Vegetables
with premium extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar

Assorted gourmet breads will be served with your meal.

Entrees
Herb Crusted Beef Tenderloin
With fines herbes cream sauce, thyme roasted potatoes, creamed spinach and a Parmesan crusted tomato

Coq Au Vin
With sauteed haricots verts, roasted peppers and yuca puree

Gemelli Pasta
With fresh San Marzano tomato sauce, mushrooms and asparagus

Thai Shrimp Salad
With fresh shrimp, avocado and ginger soy vinaigrette

Dessert
Cookie Crumble Ice Cream
Vanilla ice cream topped with crumbled chocolate chip cookies

Gourmet Cheese Plate
Camembert, Gruyere and Gorgonzola

Grand Marnier Fruit Salad
With strawberry sorbet

BREAKFAST
Offered prior to arrival

Entrees
Cheddar Omelette
With Lyonnaise potatoes, smoked ham and fresh fruit

Fresh Fruit Bowl
With granola and fruit yogurt

I had this and everything was at room temperature; I did not have the yogurt, but the fruit was wilted and tasted a bit off/warmed over

Served with warm breakfast breads and your choice of beverage.

No problem and good luck. Somehow your post ended up in the 2015 AA International meals thread. Hence my confusion.

Were both of those flights in 2- or 3-class J?

BTW, why wasn't there a sundae listed in the dessert options for the GIG-MIA flight? I thought all SA flights still got sundaes in both F/J (and even presumably 3-class J, if this was 3-class J)?

This is what you get when you travel Y on a MIA-CCS flight. It was good, we used to get a hot course though. Choice was between this or sandwich. I took the sandwich inbound and wished i would have picked the salad, then salad was outbound. Noted that AA makes better salad than sandwiches, at least it has meat. Catering is always better ex-MIA than CCS.... , salad didn't look so pretty in Caracas.

Anyway, lets go with AA Y meal. (which got downgraded from a hot one). I have been told that 738 unlike 757 don't have ovens and blah blah.

Photo was taken with my watch so nobody noticed.

Should this be merged with the other international meal thread?
