I did the same flight in F two weeks ago and also no PDB, which I found shocking at the time but reading through the thread here it appears to be par for the course.
Traveling JFK-LAX in F on Saturday so waiting to see if its the same.

This is the best consolation prize (probably moreso for shorter flights) when the PDB is conspicuously absent.

BOS-MIA F afternoon flight yesterday. No PDB at all. While underway a flight attendant refused a request from the passenger in the row behind me to provide two mini bottles for a double. Said giving the bottles was a temporary COVID thing and they have been instructed to stop delivering the mini bottles, Is this no bottle rule a thing or an FA making up rules?

I have them still delivering the minis and I vastly prefer to make my own drinks.

In the last week:
  • LAX-BOS - water/OJ/sparking wine
  • BOS-ORD - no PDB
  • ORD-SNA - no PDB but took dinner and drink orders before takeoff. Handed me 2 minis for my first round.

A mixed bag on my last six flights:

3/15 AA1380 LAS - DFW: Full PDB
3/16 AA1223 DFW - MIA: No PDB at all
3/16 AA1191 MIA - BZE: Water and OJ
3/22 AA700 BZE - MIA: Full PDB
3/23 AA2286 MIA - LAX: Water, OJ, Prosecco
3/23 AA739 LAX - LAS: Water and OJ

With the exception of the DFW - MIA sector we had great crews all round.

PHL-SFO last night, delayed due to late crew arrival and no PDB offered. We then had a further delay due to ground stop and the pilot shut the engines off while we waited. Unfortunately, even during this time no beverage was offered despite the FA enjoying a can of cranberry juice. First drink service of the flight in F was 1 hour after wheels up (due to turbulence), but service got much better afterwards.

4 flights this week 3/4. The 6am out of LAS was a no go but meal service and Bev service on all was good. Actually on the 4th now and just had PDB. Like the back to normal service. Much needed.

3/23 AA3758 BRO - DFW: Full PDB, which was surprising to me for a short regional aircraft flight.

3/26 IND - JFK E175

Doors closed 10 mins early and so we sat at the gate for about 8 mins and still no PDB.

PDBs offered on DCA-SDF AA 4900 on Thursday, except the FA inadvertently skipped me. I was in 1A.
