Any link to post (with pix?) I didnít see any. Nevertheless, sounds like beef for me! 😂

Thanks, I think you're right. I hate chicken on the bone with skin on, gonna pass. It looks moist and good though! Thank you for hunting it down.

Reading through these posts Im struck by how we continue to display a slavish loyalty to the airline of our choice, often due to status, benefits, rewards, upgrades etc etc
We are then blinded by the unethical product and lack the assertiveness to vote with our feet and look elsewhere
The entire AA Flagship F experience barely exceeds J on most airlines that have a customer focused approach
Without exception none of these menus reflect industry standard international F
The wine lists are appalling and say a lot about both a company that believes serving wines in Flagship F for less than 10 Euros a bottle is ok and customers who let them get away with this
A tragic state of affairs for this carrier, especially with respect to the way in which it views its customers

Or even just vote with their wallets and buy J instead of F until the product justifies it. I find AA's business class to be quite good compared to many European airlines (AF, LH, etc.) but F is simply not competitive, and in some cases seems the exact same as J with a seat that rotates (more of a gimmick than anything).

Jfk-Mad AA 94

Solid service in J last night. Offered PDBs from the galley on my side versus the OJ / water / champagne tray and refills proactively provided during our 1-hour ground delay.

Service commenced just after take off and was very quick, which was good for the short overnight flight. Drinks, nuts and apps were provided at the same time off the cart and refills were provided when the mains were brought out.

I slept through breakfast, but it looked like it was fully wrapped up about 40 minutes before landing.

For what itís worth, AAís new jet bridge approach was partially in play - there were jet bridges at 1L and 2L in MAD, however only 2L was used for de-planing.

Headphones were scooped up while I was sleeping.

Menus:






Wines ranged from $4.84 to $16.99.

Dinner:





Salmon ó piping hot and a tad overdone, but still solid

Not about the food, I know, but thanks for the comprehensive report. We'll be flying from/to MAD soon (DFW) and wondered what the new "jet bridge approach" is?

Thanks.
