Welcome to the 2019 version of the combined AA meals thread, focusing on international. To help give us a clear picture of your experience, remember to include routes, times, meal designation (breakfast/lunch/dinner/snack/refreshments/none), and if you want, seat number. Photos are welcome and very helpful. Those are guidelines, but of course, the format/style is all yours. Of course, discussion of improvements and/or cutbacks, questions, and thoughts are also welcome.

Format Sample
This is a format you can use when introducing your meal report. This is just a sample format; deviations are expected and are okay. However, if the flight is taken on a 777 in Business, please clearly indicate if you're in 2- or 3-class Business. If you want to see other examples of past formats, check out historical Int'l meal threads - or just post the same way you've always done.

AA2: JFK-LHR: 7pm
Dinner
777 (3-class)
Business Class

(from here, share the menu, experiences and/or photos)

Thanks to MrAndy1369 for starting this and the domestic meal threads for 2019 and defining guidelines.

We are in economy PHL-ZRH next week and I’m about to call in to request a gluten free meal for myself. My 10 year old eats everything I cook but on flights is turned off by the sauces and high sodium and unrecognizability. LOL. Can anyone advise what the kids meal consists of?

I really enjoy the herbed chicken - Tikka masala sauce is good!

I have the same menu as posted up thread with the miso glazed chicken. Going with that since I don’t like lamb or fish.....the cannelloni sounded good but we’ll see!

Ooops didn’t mean to reply to the tikka dish post.....sorry!

SCL-DFW June 28 Economy Class - Orange Juice Downgrade

When I asked for orange juice was given orange-flavored sweetened water (think Tang, only worse). While the orange juice on AA in the past was not the greatest, at least it had some real juice in it. This appeared to be artificially sweetened as well because it was so sickeningly sweet that it was undrinkable.
If they're going to cut back to this, why not just eliminate it altogether?

I have the same menu for as your MUC to CLT, for a LHR to DFW early August, would be interested if no other views on what you ended with otherwise will look to expedite my connection to have food in the CX F lounge.

Might want to look at what you cut and pasted there. Looks like it has some identifying information.

PRG-PHL
A332

No menus available so I can't really tell what some of this was:

Giant water bottles at every seat



First drink service while watching Wimbledon on live TV (very salty nuts!)



Starter which I think was duck



Pasta/Cannelloni was delicious and huge



Fresh mid-flight snacks/wraps were out....I really appreciate AA has fresh food available instead of chips and candy like DL. The wrap was on top of a sweet and sour chili sauce



Chicken sandwich before landing



Overall a very nice flight and the PHL based crew were awesome

Any recommendations?
The wife is having the Salmon, but I am a little in between what to choose.
The chicken sounds reasonable, but not so spectacular. Should i take my chances and choose on board? Or is there a big difference between pre-booked mails and choose later/onboard meals??
