HNL-DFW

Overall good taste profile; Abit too fatty cut of short ribs for me.


Broccoli with mayo-esque dressing. Salad is fresh and delicious with sesame dressing.

Great taste profile

Classic; Mac nuts with strawberries and fudge.

Gluten Free Options

Ill be flying from DFW to MCO and back at the end of the month and was wondering if anyone had any recent experiences with the gluten-free options. Would appreciate knowing what I might be in for. Thank you in advance.

Compared with what's listed in the pre-order menu? No. They load the catering changes (for those of us old enough to remember when those happened ) into the preorder menus before they've live to passengers. That said, caterers sometimes miscater either one item or the pairing, so you may end up with something different anyway, but it's not because of a planned cycle change.

I think some of the shorter Central and South American flights out of the US get the standard domestic catering options, from what it looks like in the reports on this thread... So that might have something to do with it. I'm kind of surprised they tried to get the verbiage on the site to be that specific -- this one is easier to navigate (and still not done correctly), but there are some tricker exceptions to catering in some cities that would make that problematic to do reliably with what they have to work with in Sabre.

how does one know what the meal would be, if i instead chose the diabetic or kosher meal? it doesnt really give a description of the meal underneath...

Am flying 7:30am SEA-CLT on Thursday. Whats the best breakfast meal to pre-order? I was gonna go diabetic but heard its just a fruit plate. Anyone have any experience? Whats the Hindu meal like? I think gluten free is an omelette. The frittata isnt terrible.

I saw two kosher breakfasts on the 2023 thread (one a turkey and gravy dinner, another a really dry plain omelette), but not much diabetic. Ex:LAX doesnt seem to have great catering, IMO.

am in the same boat out of Seattle this week. Did you have an experience? I was gonna possibly try the kosher.

Smoked salmon would be my choice. Frittata was not balanced or all that filing and was too leek/asparagus forward.

The special meal standards are here: https://www.aa.com/i18n/travel-info/...-allergies.jsp

The specific meal on a flight will not be available in advance.

I fly next week but have pencilled in a kosher meal. But the above two votes are for salmon. If you do the kosher, would you let me know what it was? I wasnt able to find anything too concrete in the 2023 thread about a kosher bkfast. Im still back and forth between the salmon and the kosher option. Options on the way back are the short rib or the golden chicken, and I selected short rib.

Did AA dramatically expand meal options on 900 mile first class flights? I'm looking at the pre-order for a DFW-DCA flight in February, and the options are much more extensive than they used to be:
