Combined 2019 AA Domestic Meal / Meals - menu / photos / etc. (master thread)
 
Quick question on warm nuts service...will the following have it:
LAX-DCA 810AM
IAD-LAX 7AM
LAX-IAD 915PM

I imagine the last will but it seems odd to have them at 7AM in either direction.

No, not on breakfast flights in my experience.

Had the burger yesterday on CLT-DEN, it was ok. It seems like a really odd choice for airline catering to me. Burger and cheese tasted ok (cheese was pretty bland, but thatís just American cheese), and the bread tasted ok too, but the weird hard yet mushy texture was a bit off putting.

Broccoli side salad / coleslaw was nice. And warm cookie is always welcomed in my book.

Iím not sure iíd order the burger again. Iíd likely go for a special meal in its place.

BWI-MIA diebetic meal lunch A319 dec 21 2pm
 
Wasnt expecting much from bwi but did get pre flight drink
and was served half piece of chicken with mash potatoes and carrots with some type of gravy. Chicken was good, mash and carrots tasted like tv dinner. Nice fruit plate and salad looked like lettuce from the guys burger set next to me with cheese and a few grapes served with balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Original choice was hamburger or Asian chicken salad. Would say my meal was a bit better than burger but no steak and chicken was only half piece. Got cookie for dessert that was rock hard. Service was excellent. Site wont let me post picture due to it being my first review.

same exact diabetic lunch meal out of LGA.....I actually donít like it and would do a different pre-order option or the fruit and cheese plate. The gravy is bad and so are the mashed potatoes and carrots.

BOS-ORD (LAA Boeing 737-800 Oasis), pre-ordered diabetic meal.

My first by-the-book service in a long time. Full PDB; orders taken and/or acknowledged during taxi. After takeoff: towels, nuts, drinks, refills, a hand-run lunch service served two rows at a time followed by the bread basket. Refills, and then choice of chocolate chip or snickerdoodle cookie.

Overall, a great start to the new year.

I booked about 10 months out with google flights. Was with 7 or 8 envious family members who flew in economy and booked on various sites, but I got lucky when booking and was charged the same price they paid for round trip economy for first class on the way down and economy on the way back. Transaction wouldnt go through first 3 times but went through on 4th try (error not declined) but got free bag check up to two bags saved $25 on that and what I see as a $10-$15 meal so was overall happy with experience. Wish i could post the pic of meal. Mabye will try hindu next time.

Grilled shrimp and beef filet with truffleyaki sauce and roasted fingerling potatoes


Here it is from 692 today-1 lone shrimp, which wasn't bad & I would have liked more of them. Beef was meh & potatoes a bit undercooked for me. The salad was served w/a choice of balsamic vingarette or fugi apple dressing, which is what I chose & it was very good. Couldn't really figure out what the appetizer was-salmon obviously, but I guess some kind of cream cheese or soft cheese was wrapped in it. Wasn't bad. PDB, but tropical mixed nuts after take off were cold. Dessert was made to order sundae. Snack basket passed around & then left out for self service. Mints/candies before landing.

Wifi was the Panasonic & it was AWFUL-definitely not worth what the charge was & have let AA know it.

By the book service has been very sparse, I know the feeling. That diabetic meal looks good, I've not been lucky when ordering them. Got rubbery chicken twice now, and one of the sides was inedible. Not sure what to do about this week's flights...

Haha yup looks just like what I had on the same flight roughly a year ago now. Still the lone shrimp too. :(

Diabetic meal MIA-DFW lunch service. Chicken with mash was delicious and the shrimp was big and fresh tasting.

I am surprised mashed potatoes are part of the diabetic meal...shouldn't it be limiting carbs not providing a huge helping of them?
