Who actually runs American Airlines? Them? Or those who call themselves management?
I have always loved your posts

As requested, here is my return menu on and pictures for AA 6, the OGG-DFW flight. It looks like my menu matches yours on the pre-order, Sari75.

I scored once again and got the Super Diamond seats both ways. Premium pillows and blankets and B&O Noise cancelling headsets were provided, and as mentioned, no amenity kits on this route. Menus were waiting on our seat as well. Full water bottles were distributed as well of Nestle Pure Life water. I was hoping for one last chance to drink Hawaiian water, but no such luck.



American Airlines Menu OGG-DFW

After takeoff, drink of choice and packaged mixed nuts (read: mainly almonds) were distributed. Tablecloths were placed on the tray table in advance of meal service. My pre-order of the shrimp & grits was pretty much acknowledged, or as my flight attendant said "I see you pre-ordered the fish..." Me: " Er, um, sure, yes maam."

Meals were served on one tray, with items pre-wrapped. Much to my dismay, there was no lemon tart and only a pre-packaged cookie on offer as I found the lemon tart served out of DFW to be decent.



American Airlines Dinner OGG-DFW

Maui catering continues to impress and the pineapple was fresh and delicious below the crab salad. The sauce was also excellent as was the main entree. Drinks were offered with the meal and another with the tray clearance. I then proceeded to toss and turn for the rest of the flight as I find these seats to be way too constricting with the tray table over the leg area as a side sleeper. The cabin, even with the air vents, was also quite warm. I did "sleep" through the pre-landing service, so I can't comment on that, opting instead to enjoy a much better breakfast in the Centurion Lounge while awaiting my connection. Overall, American continues to offer the most premium experience to Hawaii versus the competitors on their DFW flight, and absolutely one of the main reasons I opted to fly AA as opposed to UA which offered a lower fare.

Reminds me of an AA flight I had a while back, HKG-LAX. The "beef" was lamb, the "chicken" was squab, the "fish" was shrimp, and the "vegetable" was tofu.

In any event, those shrimp look pretty good!

Thanks for the photos and details! What is the cinnamon bar thing-y? Did they put out a snack basket at all?

UAPremierGuy Thank you for that most interesting mini-report on the inflight service. It should quite honestly be used as a template for others as it told us everything that we needed to know and it stated what to be your findings as opposed to being over-opinionated. It was also mercifully brief, and I did not feel that I had lost unrecoverable minutes of my life wading through. In short, I enjoyed it.

If I may ask - did you have anything to drink - did they serve wine with the meal if requested and is it still being served in plastic glasses? Thank you in advance.

Although apparently not everything that we needed to know.

Thanks for the kind words. The back of the menu mention the AA wine sommelier but doesn't actually list the wines on offer. I had Jack and Coke with my meal and was proactively offered doubles. Unfortunately, drinks are still being served in plastic glasses.

I can't comment on whether they put out a snack basket at all as I didn't walk to the mid-cabin bar/snack station on this flight. I did, however, on the outbound, and there was nothing put out. The cinnamon bar thing is an "aztec cinnamon bar," described on the packaging as "a decadent dark chocolate brownie topped with cinnamon oat crunch." I can't yet comment on its taste as I'm keeping it in my briefcase for my upcoming meal-less flights.

Yes - I thought that after I posted it - however if he doesn't (I'm presuming it's a gentleman who posted this and my apologies if I've got that wrong as well!) drink, I thought that maybe he preferred not to post plastic glasses and miniature bottles.

Thank you so much for that - my husband adores Jack and Ginger which on American is easy as they load plenty. We're a wee bit disappointed with the after dinner drinks as he loves a Cognac and that seems to have gone.

I had the short rib on the hnl-dfw last week. It was so firm it could have been sold at Famous Footwear.

Smoked salmon, poached shrimp, and ranch dressing

Louis, a vinaigrette, green goddess, maybe even old school "French" in a pinch, but ranch?

I'm typically easily pleased by airplane food, so take this advice for what it's worth (not much): I had the artichoke pasta in January and enjoyed it and my default is typically the short rib which I find harder for the reheating process to ruin. YMMV!
