Torn between the beef and the sea bass, any thoughts?
Sea bass no doubt. So good I had two servings for a flight from JFK - LAX.

You can get 2?? My last JFK-LAX in F was 40% full and I had the sea bass which was great! Even though I ate my fill in Flagship First Dining, I couldíve done with another portion of sea bass.

Any idea why AA serves a full hot meal on SJO-MIA but only offers the cold plate/sandwich on MIA-SJO? Seems odd and you'd think it's the other way around but just experienced this myself. For what it's worth, the pork chop ex-SJO was excellent and a wonderful meal for such a short flight.

Is it the time of departure coming into play? MIA-BOG I was served a full meal and BOG-MIA legit NO catering of any kind.. They said it was b/c it left at 140am from BOG. And this was in J.

Even more ridiculous is BOG-DFW gets no catering at all b/c it leaves in the early morning as well. And thats 5.5 hours.

lol. Was quite hungry. I usually skip bread on flights. FA looked at me and asked if I liked another one? Bring it on!

It is probably cheaper for them or the catering facility can’t make/get ingredients for the cold meals.

I had this happen MEX-DFW, where I got a full hot meal service, whereas DFW-MEX was regular cold meal. But then I've had cold meal ex-MEX too, so 🤷‍♂️

Flight time was practically identical and well within the dinner window in each direction.

Iíll be on the evening LHR-JFK flight in F in about two weeks. Has anyone had the Monkfish Curry described below?

It looks like it has the potential to either be great or a massive miss. Thanks!

This was the shrimp version that I think is fairly similar. It looked terrible but tasted pretty good

I've had both the pork belly and the tagine from this menu cycle and found both to be pretty good.
