Anyone having an issue seeing your already selected meal option? This is still happening and I dont understand. In fact when I open the res in my app just as its opening the screen "blinks" and even looks a bit diff for a sec then I scroll down and the option to review my order is gone. I have opened 4 diff reservations on 10 diff days, 3 to 4 times per day on those 10 days and out of like what 30-40 times now I wouold say 7 or 8 times I see it and all the other times it is not there and I can not review my order. I dont unerstand whats going on.

Nonstop, or a connection? I ask because if it was EGE-DFW, the dessert option makes sense, but if it was nonstop EGE-MIA, the dessert option should've been an ice cream cup or cheese plate.
nonstop. The plane came in from Miami and was double catered there.

Desert placed in the front of the tray again. I had the short ribs with Mac and Cheese again on MIA to JFK. Was on a 777-200 today.

Anyone know the typical dessert options for AA 136 (LAX to LHR 02/20) and AA 93 (ZRH to PHL 03/05) and AA 765 (PHL to PHX 03/06)?

On the first 2 flights: sundate, cheese plate & some other dessert that can be a decent cake but also can be a horrible hockey puck Covid era tart. Not as familiar on that domestic route but likley one of those bundt cakes you see and/or a cup of ice cream.

Beef is pre-order only now


As some had observed already on their flights- beef is apparently no longer an option in flight, available only for pre-orders
dw is online now

It looks as if the tray is not wide enough to place the appetizer next to the main course. If I were to set it up, I'd switch the location of the desert and the flatbread; however, the flatbread is meant to be eaten with the appetizer, so perhaps that's why the flatbread was placed in the back next to the appetizer.

It's just the way those particular dishes are spaced in the pic -- there is plenty of room for the side plate next to the main if they hadn't placed the main so far to the left... That's sort of the default location for the side dish, even if it's not the spec location in the order. There's even enough room for a second main casserole to be placed sideways next to the main if needed. Your placement by order makes a lot of sense as well, I'm just commenting on what physically fits.

The silverware and the napkin in which it is wrapped is already placed as far to the right of the tray as is possible.

Sure, but the casserole is almost an inch to the left of where it's designed to be.

OR

Why not serve the dessert separately and offer a drink with it? Since AA does not offer meals on flights any shorter than 3 hours, No reason to plop the entire tray down at once.

On flights 900-1300mi, yes the dessert is supposed to be served on the same tray, and in some cases, it def makes sense as some of those 900mi flights are quite short. On flights above 1300mi, the dessert is supposed to be served after the main meal (and is supposed to be a choice of ice cream or a cheese plate). However, on quite a few of my recent 1300mi+ flights, the FAs have been serving desserts meant for 900-1300mi flights on the main tray.

As I wrote, on 3-hour flight, NOT 900 miles flight.
