Dinner in F AUS-IAH?

Under flight status it's showing dinner on CO1603 tomorrow. Is it possible that they are serving dinner in F or is this a glitch?

I would go with glitch. Unless something odd happens with the arrival patterns into IAH, this flight is rarely more than 27-28 minutes long. You're sometimes lucky to get a beverage service.

Its a glitch. Too short of flight to serve dinner. As the above poster mentioned you may get a beverage service, but that is all dependent on the crew of your flight. Some will do F beverage service others will remain seated for the duration of the flight, except to do the required safety checks.

I've flown this every 2 or 3 months for the last 1.5 years and been upgraded a couple of times. I usually get drink service in F (they took drink orders for the air during pre-departure beverage) but in Y it's either water service or nothing.

That being said, I have received meal service on flights this short before, just not on CO/UA

Also, I wouldn't eat the F meal as I would want some Salt Lick BBQ and Amy's Ice Cream before I left.

Salt Lick and Amy's, what a great palate you have. I don't believe that there is another flavor of ice cream in this country that can compete with Amy's Mexican Vanilla.

I fly this twice a week. You should get a pre-departure drink (if you board within a reasonable time) and one drink in the air. Going IAH-AUS the flight usually lasts about 28 minutes, and maybe 35 minutes going the opposite direction.

Air France might offer food on a 30 minute flight - if they aren't on strike that week, of course.
