I decided to ask for a bourbon and I got probably 10oz with a little ice in the 12 oz glass. This FA did not understand bartending but I sure arrived to CHS happy.
You won the day!

Yes. The flight is 1162 miles so you will receive a cold meal.

I was on AA2009 DFW-SEA last week and ordered the Diabetic Meal. It consisted of a shrimp/coleslaw thing, a regular salad with balsamic vinaigrette, grilled chicken breast, grilled cauliflower, baked squash. Sourdough dinner roll and a package of gluten free chocolate chip cookies. Sorry, forgot to take pics. Chicken breast was well seasoned and moist, veg was good.

Eagle “cold meal” J breakfast, LGA-IAH

Two options were vegetarian (egg salad) or “protein”. I was hoping for the smoked salmon, which was an AA cold meal I had before meals returned post COVID. Naturally with hope/expectations, comes the let down. This is the “protein” which is really almost all sugar or junk food.

We also got a pass of the snack basket and no glassware.

Best of the choices

I have a ORD-MCO flight coming up in a week and a half my options for dinner are the Greek Salad which is already removed from consideration or the Roasted Turkey sandwich with Pesto Cream Cheese or try and order a special meal (I know probably won’t get a special meal anyways even if I order it). Is that the Turkey sandwich that I’ve seen in the thread or is this a different one? I haven’t gotten all the way through the thread yet for this year.

Advise please.

Unless they don’t stock them, like my last PHL-DEN flight that I was stuck at #1 on the UG list.

I've never done any of the special meals so have no idea what to choose. Thanks for your help!

what did you end up going with? Have a similar choice and opted for diabetic, but after these comments thinking of switching to the Hindu as I generally feel it reheats well.

I haven't flown it yet - fly on Saturday, July 16th. I pre-ordered the Diabetic meal. I'll let you know how it is!

Flying out of Chicago Terminal 3? That's easy. Walk through Concourse K, look for Gate K4, and eat at Tortas Frontera. Once you are in the air, order multiple Woodfords on the rocks.

So this seems to be a new one for me, the options for a morning ex-MEX flight next week. As someone who’s not the biggest fan of overly sweet things in the early am, I’m half thinking of going with the steak. Do you all actually think the choices will hold, or will the steak I order magically become some egg dish when being served?

What time is the departure? I can't tell if that's breakfast for lunch. Excited for new options ex-MEX though! Also, what segment?
