Can't see pre-order meal options for transcon redeye Flagship
 
Hi

I have a Biz class flight in less than 30 days,

In MMB I can see pre-order options for LHR-JFK return but for the JFK-LAX sectors the pre-order options are not shown.

The JFK-LAX sectors I am flying Business Class on-board the A321T - should the pre-order options be available?

Thanks

Exactly what day and time is your JFK-LAX flight? The menu shows at exactly 30 days, down to the minute.

Are you trying to use BA's MMB to look at pre-ordering? You have to use AA's website, with the AA PNR.

AFAIK those flight times do not have full meal services.

Both flights are marked Snack or Brunch which is probably why pre-order is not available to you. They'll both offer meals, although abbreviated from the "full service" transcon Flagship product. I believe AA's expectation is most customers will choose to pre-dine in the lounge prior to these late evening flights. Haven't taken one of these in a year or so but my last experience was that it's a single tray service with a more streamlined menu.

That's why. Neither of those flights get full meals.

After all these years, we are still seeing that phantom "Snack or Brunch" meal designation. It has been a known bug in SABRE for 30+ years and nobody seems to be motivated to fix it. :)

Back to the topic at hand, there is no pre-flight meal choice on the red-eye transcon flights. But you will receive a light meal service.

Exactly. Just eat in the lounge before departure and sleep on board. Not worth staying awake for a snack service.

How is this a bug? It seems to be a correct description. A snack is served on this flight.

Preorder Available Previously
 
Thatís not correct. I have made pre-order selections for transcon red-eyes, for the late night snack, as recently as July. Not seeing it now for my flight tomorrow night.
