Is there a "compensation" thread here on the AA forums like over on the DL (and I think UA) forums? I couldn't find one. I know UA was giving out $75-100 vouchers for no meals when they cancelled the meal service for flights under 900 miles recently and I thought I read DL is somewhere around 12,500 miles. 2,500 seems paltry, but again, this is AA and I recall a View From The Wing blog where AA has said that meal service isn't a paid for service for First, so worth $0.00
The FA's are not happy with their contract or lack of one and they are taking it out of the passengers, which I feel is wrong. On my DFW-PHX flight (just a snack basket) the FC FA, came around twice for drinks once with the Snack basket,

Chicken Parmesan DFW to PDX

Excited to try this one out, but curiosity killed the cat:

Chicken and breading was way too mushy. No knife needed to cut the chicken. Pasta had good taste, but a fat bomb. Antipasto salad is okay, and probably the best part of the dish.

They need to figure out the texture of this dish with the airplane oven.

Will maybe try couple more times to see if it gets better.

I have been checking the menu options for our 21 Feb flight and so far there are only 2 options (other than the ethnic choice) the Frittata and Salmon - neither of which sounds appealing to us. We also flew FC on AA in Nov and remember on day 30 the choices were just the ethnic ones - then a few days later more options popped up. So I'm hoping that will happen again in a few days. Is that normal for AA???

There IS a breakfast cycle that is a choice between the smoked salmon platter and the leek, mushroom and asparagus frittata (besides the dietary selections)... I don't know if I'd call that "normal" or not, but that is a regular cycle in the rotation, by design. IME when I've had that menu cycle, more options weren't added to it, but with the newly expanded offerings on some routes for lunch/dinner, who knows?

Okay thanks. I Have to choose between that or museli. Or I could go Hindu/Asian Veg but out of LAX its always so bad and especially for breakfast that worries me to try it.

I usually do Asian veg and hope for Indian but at least I know it will be Veg. I still cant figure out for sure if Hindu on AA is Veg or not b/c it could have lamb no? That wouldnt work for me.

Any experience with the Rotini Pasta that has Lemon pepper cream sauce, roasted broccoli and cauliflower and pecorino cheese?

From the AA website -
"Hindu* - Prepared according to Hindu dietary practices and may include dairy, curries and spicy flavors"

So it does not specify the meal as vegetarian/vegan/or other

Highly doubt it has lamb, but there is no guarantee it is 100% veg.

Also, check your DMs.

By definition, Hindu diet is lacto-vegetarian.
