With the Airbus and Boeing delivery delays, FF may be around for a bit longer than AA originally anticipated, but at this point they might as well just sell it as J+.
Good catch. Does anyone know if soup and small plate choices are still standard on non-redeye transcon F? When I flew JFK-LAX F last year (afternoon flight) I was given a choice of two small plates, and soup. Perhaps in this instance, the service was somewhat condensed due to it being a redeye?

I think I agree....however....it wasn't even room temperature so it ruined it for me. But it was NOT dried out....and tasted like a Chipotle meal and it definitely has potential if warmed up properly.

It is so much better than the stupid Golden chicken, though!

Next time have them reheat it. I've done that before.

I get your review was about FF, but I wonder beer selection is same on domestic J: Bud Lite, XX, Heineken and Goose IPA. I'm flying from Canada, US domestic, then to Colombia. Do they carry random craft beers, or is it always Goose IPA and nothing else?

I don't see any wines listed in your photo. Did they give you a wine list like long haul flights? I've read reviews from December (total 12 pages), nobody has complained or commended, so I suppose they're all mediocre and acceptable ?

No breakfast

Well they just told us that Dallas couldnt load catering for our flight so unfortunately I wont be able to provide any info as to what a continental breakfast is. 🤨

and apparently no snacks either. Only biscoff cookies. Wow

Dinner?

Is that normal? DFW to ALB. 7:30 pm departure. Only choices are fruit platter or harvest grain bowl for dinner?

I believe there are now additional options for pre-order, but yes- its common now to see the only onboard options as one cold option (like the charcuterie plate) and one hot(er) option like the grain bowl or a chicken.

thank you. So the app only shows the two options. Is there a better way to order? Or can I see what the onboard options are and switch?

It does sound like something odd is going on... Depending on the caterer and station, it can sometimes happen where you just have the two onboard options and no additional pre-order options, IME, but the two pre-order options should fit the normal onboard schema of one hot/one cold, one of which is vegetarian, the other beef/chicken/fish protein. Having two vegetarian options as the only two pre-orders hasn't been a historical norm.

If you do pre-order, you can always ask the FA onboard to switch if you need to, and from what I've seen they'll do their best to accommodate your request by cycling the meal through as they take orders. If they don't have enough extras of the meal you want, or no one else wants the meal you pre-order though, depending on where you're seated in the meal ordering process, I'm not sure that some FA's wouldn't push back on the swap. To be fair though, I've never seen any pushback happen, that's just a guess based on some looks I've seen passengers given before.

Flew first on PHL-MSP on a CR9 last week. AA couldn't meet even my low expectations. Tiny cheese box with a selection of American cheeses (yuck), literally only 3 crackers, tiny little mix of cranberries, and a few grapes. This was the "protein" option, I was expecting at least some meat in the box! I flew this same route in 2019 on a regional and had a full lunch meal.

What AA is serving on CR9/E170/175 F cabin is nothing than a scam; a card box with a tiny sandwich or cheese is not a meal.

What market are you talking about? Were you on a paid F ticket? If your flight was advertised as breakfast/continental breakfast and nothing at all was loaded other than Biscoffs, I'd complain to AA and ask for a partial refund.

That does not sound normal at all. DFW-ALB is > 1300 miles. I don't recall seeing fruit platter as an option on dinner flights, certainly not > 1300 mile ones. DFW-ALB should be catered similarly to DFW - BOS/NYC (with the caveat that I'm sure AA is cheAAping out as usual and not paying for the catering from ALB that would be readily available if they were willing to pay for it)

This was an ALB-DFW flight. The incoming aircraft had come from DFW. Ill be submitting a complaint when I get back.

yes very odd. I had gone into the AA app to manage the flight to see what the dinner options were and there were only two radio buttons to choose from. I solve screen shotted it as now its gone with no option to select a meal.
